Bruce Timm is the Emmy-Award winning producer, director and designer of Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond and Justice League (if you missed any of their initial runs on Cartoon Network, check them out on DVD). I was blessed to have recently met the man at the 7th annual Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle. Busy as he is, I'm glad Timm took the time to grant yours truly this interview.

Has it been Obama's first hundred days yet? If not, oh well ...

Obama, Where Art Thou?
by Saab Lofton

"Obama will not fulfill that potential for change unless he is enveloped by a social movement, which is angry enough, powerful enough, insistent enough, that he fills his abstract phrases about change with some real content."
--Professor Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Politicians are like weather vanes; our job is to make the wind blow."

Picard: I sincerely hope this is the last time I'll find myself here.

Q: You just don't get it, do you, Jean-Luc? The trial never ends.

You're welcome.

"Politicians are like weather vanes; our job is to make the wind blow."
--David Brower, three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee

It's like I told my audience in Las Vegas: If you're going to gamble, gamble on Humanity's chances at achieving a Roddenberryian utopia -- don't bother with the kind of gambling done in a casino. Therefore, even if only a few people read this, I'm still going to encourage activism at all costs.

"Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength and power ... The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman."
—William Moulton Marston, inventor of the lie detector and creator of Wonder Woman

Target Demographics With Disposable Income by Saab Lofton

Target Demographics With Disposable Income
by Saab Lofton

One of the biggest problems with Barack Obama is the problematic paradox he presents: If Obama loses this November, the claim will be that Rev. Jeremiah Wright's brutal honesty contributed to his downfall. If Obama wins, then supposedly the path to electoral success will lie in denouncing the brutally honest. In either event, those who tell the truth in this world are fucked.

Since the days of old -- back when white women were put on pedestals by plantation society and kept from black men who could impregnate them with "mongrels" such as Oscar-winner Halle Berry (and Barack Obama, for that matter) -- all too many whites in America have gotten off on pretending as though they're made out of glass. The theory is white Americans are so fragile, if someone like Rev. Wright points out the existence of American imperialism, they'll simply fall apart.

"In 2006, the United Nations Human Rights Commission noted its concern that while African Americans constitute just 12% of the population, they represent 50% of homeless people ... Myriad reports and studies that have been done all come up with the same basic conclusion: In order to resolve deep and persisting racial disparities in this country, a public policy initiative is urgently needed."
