In a time when sources of national pride are fast dwindling, I'm taking comfort where I can.

Reading Senator Byrd's reaction to the outbreak of war makes me damned proud to be an adopted West Virginian. Just as reading Umberto Eco's thoughts on the international situation from a few weeks ago makes me proud to be an Italian and an intellectual. And now, this meditation by Warren Ellis makes me proud to be a comics fan.

Small things, but significant. And at least I know who I want to be an ally of.
