Comic genius Frank Miller on #Occupy 

I am sure, at some point in the last 12,000 posts, that I have mentioned that I read comic books. Or at least used to -- as longstanding readers know, I have a lot less time for frivolities than I once did.

Anyway, Frank Miller is, for my money, one of greatest comic book storytellers of all time. Possibly the greatest. For those of you who do not partake, he is the creative mind behind the movie 300.

And, well, he does not much like the #Occupy "movement."

I also don't like the #Occupy movement, but I wasn't impressed with his essay.

What was this? A rant that the occupy movement sucks. No explanation why-- just a " dont you know we are at war" statement. Does that excuse rampant financial excess and misrepresentation? I don't see the connection at all

Not a great essay. I just did not know that Frank Miller had such views. The link was more for comic book fans than for serious critics of the #Occupy thingy. Sorry if I suggested otherwise.

It's always exciting to find a standard bearer of popular culture who isn't a drooling leftist zombie.

I read a lot of entertainment blogs and have noticed that Miller's post has enraged many of the writers for them.

What's fascinating about these responses is that they seem utterly shocked to encounter someone in the entertainment business that strongly disagrees with them on a political subject.
