As you may have noticed, I do that kind of thing with the Powernaut all 
the time.  You've already seen him in Grim Gritty 2005, and there's more 
of that coming.  After that, I might just have to do Powernaut 1912... 
I'll never get done with this series, will I?

But enough about the Powernaut...  Last night when I was up way too 
late, I decided to mix it up.  My publication schedule in the coming 
weeks is likely to be:

1.  Today:  S.O.S. 1944.  (Ready to go, as soon as I stop goofing off on 

2.  Galatea 1944!  Moving up in the schedule, because there's a 
two-parter coming...

3.  Doc Nostalgia 1944.  How did he *really* fit in to World War 2, with 
a name like Doc Nostalgia?

4.  Oops, I'll be meeting some weird friends of mine in San Francisco

5.  Doc Nostalgia 2009!  What he *tells* people World War 2 was like, 
might be a bit different from what he went through at the time.  Then...

6.  I've dredged up another 2009 war veteran that everyone's probably 
forgotten by now.

Let's take a look, if you will, at the Second Amendment of the
Constitution, which protects every American's right to shoot another
American.  This cherished constitutional right to shoot people and make
them dead is currently recognized in all fifty states, most recently
