Who are we putting up as role models for this generation? Superman? Batman? Masks of Kerry or expressions of Bush? Vote or be killed by P-Diddy running the NYC Marathon last year (the marathon is next Sunday)? Saints played the role of superheros in times past — you recognize them by their back story, distinctive symbols, and their superpowers. In the end it’s not much different than Marvel Comics. Today, I think we need them, more than ever. Miracles happen — look at the Red Sox, who won an unpresidented 8 consecutive playoff wins after 3 consecutive losses, and the Packers D’s who won the Election Bowl barely by a referee call that negated a Redskin R touchdown .
Let’s all be careful out there! Remember to plan to vote on the right day!
