Don't Waste It!: Sumana and I spent some time listening to these old Superman radio serials where Superman takes on the Klan. Sample dialogue (paraphrased): "Someone burned a cross on my lawn!" "Gee, that sounds like the Clan of the Flaming Cross!" Thanks, Superman's pal Jimmy Olsen. Caution: six episodes in, Superman has yet to actually bust any heads, and the thrilling action is frequently interrupted by hilarious super-earnest cereal commercials for the kiddies. Also, the first couple episodes have the same basic plot as The Music Man, except with hate groups instead of marching bands.
