Man or Superman (III)

The usually profanely mordant Charlie Brooker recently allowed himself to reveal his soft side when discussing the passing of British children's telly legend Oliver Postgate (responsible for such national treasures as Bagpuss, The Clangers, and Noggin the Nog).

Today, in his usual Monday column, Brooker again shows something of his underbelly, giving us a wonderful depiction of the global hopes and fears for President Obama.  I love his vivid analogy with Superman III.

Also in today's The Guardian is this item about Obama's upcoming CO2 moves - I'll keep you posted.
