Hey y'all. I'm a reporter studying telecommunications (news) at the University of Florida, the land where alligators roam freely. This is just a personal blog of things I find relevant or interesting. I blog a lot about comics, history and journalism. The comics run mostly on the Marvel side but other publishers do make the occasional appearance. I make some photoshop edits and screen caps of old comics when I'm in the mood. ISTP. Feel free to message me for any reason. Enjoy. \(-________-;)/

McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x

Is watching another episode of the west wing the same as reading this chapter for my law class?

Is Teddy Roosevelt really as awesome as his depictions in pop culture has lead us to believe?

He’s kind of more awesome, really.

While in pop culture it’s easy to reduce him to a caricature of robust masculinity (I have to include myself among such offenders, but Tales from the Bully Pulpit was always intended to be a clash of cultural iconography, not actual historical figures), the fact is, the dude was multi-multi-multi-faceted and just completely amazing.

He pursued his vigorous lifestyle as a way to keep himself alive: he had terrible asthma as a child, and so developed his strenuous regimen to build up his health.

But while many people focus on this aspect of his life—his vigor, his time as a soldier, etc—the fact is, he had a lot more going on. He fought like a motherfucker on ecological and conservation issues. His biggest policy was the Square Deal, which was based on three issues he called the three Cs: 1) conservation of natural resources, 2) control of corporations, and 3) consumer protection.

I don’t know about you, but I’d say we could use another person like that in charge.

Also, people tend to focus on the “big stick” part of his famously repeated axiom, but forget that the first part was “speak softly”: diplomacy first. TR won a Nobel Peace Prize for basically single-handedly orchestrating the end of a war between Russia and Japan. Sure, I’m not huge on the idea of military expansionism, but the idea is that it’s big so that you never have to use it, and I can at least understand where that’s coming from.

Was he perfect? No, of course not. Certainly some of his positions would not be considered enlightened or even acceptable today. For example, as a young man he had some fairly appalling views of Native Americans, and also harbored some ideas about the sterilization of criminals that seem ghastly today.

(Though: his views on immigration and race are more progressive than you might expect. He was strongly in favor of a welcoming immigration policy as long as the immigrants properly assimilated into American culture, and he said of African Americans, “ the only wise and honorable and Christian thing to do is to treat each black man and each white man strictly on his merits as a man, giving him no more and no less than he shows himself worthy to have.” He also appointed the first Jewish cabinet member. But…still. Some of his views would still be pretty abhorrent today. Are they worse than those held by some currently active members of Congress? Certainly not, but it’s not a contest, I suppose.)

Anyway, in short: was he awesome? Yes. Was he as awesome as pop culture makes him? More so, but for reasons pop culture rarely gets into.

"Really? Well, on my planet, we have a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that, dancing, well, is the greatest thing there is."
I loved that quote, and had to draw him in said great hero’s suit.
