Correcting the New York Times

The Scrapbook notes a correction in the January 6 New York Times:
An obituary of the innovative comic-page illustrator Will Eisner yesterday included an imprecise comparison in some copies between his character the Spirit and others, including Batman. Unlike Superman and some other heroes of the comics, Batman relied on intelligence and skill, not supernatural powers.

Wrong again! Superman's powers were not "supernatural." They were completely "natural"--he's just an alien from another planet who reacts differently to our sun. Duh!

I'll bet there's not a single soul at the Times that knows what the nacelles are for on the Enterprise or that Spock is only half Vulcan....
