Comic:

Rep. Grimm: Hero of the Capitol

This is one that will go completely over the heads of the younger generation, but those of us old enough to remember the comic books of the 1960s and '70s will remember the back page ads for Charles Atlas, "The World's Most Perfectly Developed Man".

In the news this week is New York Congressman Michael Grimm, who after President Obama's State of the Union speech threatened to throw reporter Michael Scotto over a balcony in the U.S. Capitol, after the reporter had the temerity to question Grimm about his campaign finances.

Although Grimm later apologized to Scotto, his intimidation of a reporter was apparently not an isolated incident.

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
