Superman: flash in the pan
Passing through Metropolis, Ill., a small town with a big name on the Illinois-Kentucky border on our way south this winter for our annual six-week sojourn in Florida, my wife took this picture at a filling station/tourist trap devoted to the Superman saga. We're close enough to Alabama that we were wishing we had our banjo on our knees, but it's been a troublesome period weather-wise. "It rained all night the day we left, the weather it was dry, the sun so hot we FROZE TO DEATH..." Well, you know. Once again, "Superman turned out to be flash in the pan." Back to Duluth in a couple of weeks.
