Professor Layton has joined the ranks of my personal list of fictional heroes. As a logic tutor at college, I can't help but love the fact that there's a video game protagonist who fights crime by solving logic puzzles, whose catchphrase is "Critical thinking is the key to success!", and who is also a total badass. Just look at him (on the right).
I also like the fact that he dresses just like me. All I need is a taller hat, and I'd make a right proper gent.
Now, pardon me for a second, because I'm about to go all political. Those of you with small children may want to have them leave the room.
I'll keep it short and sweet. I'm ready to declare, as a less-than-super non-delegate.
Any Democratic super-delegates in the house? Listen close, because you're going to want to declare based on the elusive EC Endorsement. I don't pick losers. Except Kucinich. And Dean, back in '04. And Nader, back in '00 (But that one doesn't count, 'cause I was only 14). And...well, actually, I've yet to pick a winner. But, as Obama would say, "This time, for sure! Nothin' up my sleeve...presto!" Wait, no, that was Bullwinkle J. Moose.
I was gonna endorse Obama, but you know what? Screw it. I'm voting my conscience. We need to show strength to our enemies in Pottsylvania.
Ally...OOP! A stronger tomorrow.

So we'll teach our children to be skeptical of the government
They'll question all the lies they're ever told
They'll be fearless when they stop worshiping the flagpole..."
