It's refreshing when the comic book industry has some fun. The "Green Arrow/Black Canary Wedding Special" is a nice break from the usual stories of murder, mayhem and mass chaos. Black Canary (aka Dinah Lance) is dressed in a white version of her black, skintight costume on the cover. She has her longtime lover, Green Arrow (aka Oliver Queen), thrown over her shoulder on top of a wedding cake. Green Arrow holds a string attached to an arrow with a suction cup tip stuck on his fiancee's right buttock while his arrows are spilling from his shoulder case onto the cake.

In a recent column Managing Editor Joe Centers wrote about our recent little health assessment day here at the Reflector, during which we checked pulse rates, glucose levels, blood pressures and good and bad cholesterol levels. Naturally, we're concerned about the health of those who work hard to put out the paper each day and want to make the resources available to them to feel better and live longer. The fact that we save a little money on health insurance premiums by doing so is also nice.

I applaud young Natalie Thurston for both her intelligence and courage. She is a very wise young lady for knowing that it is necessary to have a healthy distrust of government and to always question authority. It is, in fact, what has helped to keep us free. There is no disrespect in not supporting an illegal and immoral war and lack of support for a war in no way suggests lack of respect for those ordered to fight it. And she is very courageous to be willing to stand alone in protest. I do not know her, but I do know that she is far more a patriot than those who blindly swallow the rhetoric spewed by the war mongers running this country.
