More adventures with: Time Traveler Man!

Welcome to yet another thrilling adventure of:

Time Traveler Man!

He's the superhero who can travel through up to 24 hours of time in any direction! And while gambling and speculation could make him the richest man in the world, he instead uses his powers to vanquish evil and uphold goodness, justice, and rightness.

As we join our hero today he is walking the streets of the great metropolis, looking for wrongs to right!

At that moment a citizen races up to Time Traveler Man. An emergency is clearly afoot. "Time Traveler Man, thank God I've found you!"

"Take a deep breath and tell me what I can do for you citizen." Time Traveler Man said calmly.

"It's the President!" Cried the citizen, still a little breathlessly. "A terrible, terrible man is the President and it's tearing the country apart. You've got to go back in time and stop it from happening!"

Time Traveler Man looked sadly at the citizen. "I'm sorry citizen, my powers are not unlimited. I can only travel back in time up to 24 hours. There is no way for me to go back in time nearly far enough to stop this particular disaster."

"But you were our last hope!" And as despair sometimes drives men to anger, so it was with this citizen. "What good are your powers if you can't fix this? You are no superhero sir, you are a gimmick, a pointless, useless..."

"Excuse me, citizen," Time Traveler Man quietly interrupted. "I do want to hear what you have to say here, but if you could just step over to the left, out of the way of the foot traffic."

Taken aback the citizen stepped aside with The Time Traveler Man. A bare moment after he did so a large and ugly plop of bird excrement fell from the sky right where he had been standing. The citizen looked at the grotesque greenish plop of poo on the ground precisely where he had been, then he looked questioningly at Time Traveler Man. 

Time Traveler Man nodded in acknowledgement.

"I withdraw all my criticisms and objections." Said the citizen humbly. "Keep up the good work, and, thank you Time Traveler Man."

"I do what I can." Replied Time Traveler Man. "Fight the good fight. And a C-note on Lamont's Swifty to Show in the third race at Saratoga would not go amiss." He winked, and then Time Traveler Man turned away.

The good deeds never end! Join us you never know when for more exciting adventures with... Time Traveler Man!

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
