Flash for Mayor, Conservatism for Punks

I sparred with a writer of the upcoming Green Lantern movie online a bit a few years ago because he based a TV plot on the dangerously-misleading conspiracy theory that childhood vaccines are harmful.  But I will grant Mark Guggenheim this: He also wrote this recent scene from the comic book Justice Society of America showing that even if you’re the (WWII-era) Flash, being a mayor is not all that glorious. 

And for more mixing of art and politics that resists glamorizing government, remember: Come to my speech about “Conservatism for Punks” at the NYC Junto (20 W. 44th) this Thursday (7pm).  All are welcome, and it’s free.
