( 7:33 AM )
It's always those mild-mannered folks who end up with the superpowers. Christopher Reeve died this morning - suddenly and unexpectedly. His years since his accident have been nothing short of heroic in his advocacy for spinal cord and stem cell research on behalf of para-and quadrapaligics. His passing reminds us all that even Superman could use some help from advancing science and research.
From the first Superman (catching Lois as she falls from the top of a building):
Superman: Don't worry, Lois, I've got you.
Lois Lane: I know you've got me, but who's got you!?
Wish we all could have got your back sooner, Superman.
