President Obama!

Today is surely an historic day for the United States and I couldn't be more elated with the promise that is the Obama era. Although I've followed politics for as long as I can remember, the Presidential election of 2008 was only the third I'd voted in (because I only became an American citizen in 1997). I and many others I know or have heard of, have never felt as passionate about one of our Presidential candidates as we have about Barack Obama. With President Obama I feel that our country will truly be on the path to real change happening for more of this countries' people.
So good night and good riddance to this incredible blight on the U.S. that Bush and his crew has been - I still can't believe that he was elected TWICE.

As I and many others have said, change isn't going to happen overnight, but with President Obama, that new day is not only going to happen, its roots are here now, as people all over the world, young and old, from all walks of life, see the true possibilities that lie within the United States for the present and future.

Actually, I was specifically born in Homburg Saar (not to be confused with Hamburg), a small berg about a half an hour from Ramstein Air Force Base.

Did all of your Obama Spiderman comics sell out quick? Apparently, some a-hole came to our local comic book store and bought up every single issue as soon as the store opened last week. I didn't even know about the comic until a couple friends said they had wanted a copy and went to find there were none. It was even in the local newspaper.

Nicole, all of my Spidey / Obama comics did sell out, but I have third prints coming in next week (with the U.S. flag in the background - in my opinion the best cover version). The five page story was "cute", but nowhere near as good as the Obama bio comic IDW did. I'll put both aside for you and your sister and send them to your dad in his next shipment.

I hope you have a great last semester!

Ralph, you're tooooo nice to the gals!
I'll be sure to send the copies out as soon as they arrive.
On their behalf, Thanks.
