February 1967 wasn't a particularly memorable time for comic book covers compared to some other months, but this one has remained fairly durable. Green Lantern #52, cover dated April, on sale this date in 1967.

There are so many anti-Trump protests taking place in New York City that a website has been set up just to keep track of them all.

This was going to be Monday on MSNBC, but the West Virginia National Guard withdrew permission at the last minute, too late to find another venue. Although the new Governor of WV is nominally a Democrat he's a Friend of Donald, so it's not ludicrous to speculate this was politically motivated.

I'm a bit miffed I only scored an 80 out of a possible 200. I'm not as hip as Franz Kafka!

This is outstanding. Everyone should give this a look. If you use a smartphone adding the contact information for your elected officials in Washington is a matter of a couple of clicks, but this is still a great resource even if you don't.

Published on this date fifty years ago, the first appearance of the Archies.

They might have been inspired by the overnight success of the Monkees who made their debut in September 1966...but the Archies went on to become a replacement for the Monkees when music impresario Don Kirshner realized comic book characters couldn't talk back to him the way the Monkees did. The first single by the Archies would be released in August 1968.

All of the protest actions against the GOP in Philadephia this week were underreported by the national news media, but as a lover of train travel I particularly wish this concluding effort had received more coverage...
