Cuteness and not-so-cuteness

I read this in TV Guide, so I'm not sure if this is necessary, but...

Carrie Fisher will appear as Paulette Kahn, the editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet.

Why is this cute? The fomer edtior-in-chief of DC Comics was Jeannette Kahn. The current one? Paul Levitz.

I'm grinning.

It's good to have something to grin about, because the news from New Orleans is awful.

The city is being abandoned, and, so it seems, are the people in New Orleans.

And I keep getting flashes of a comic book nightmare scenario - the No Mans Land series. Gotham City falls victim to a major earthquake. The federal government decides it's too expensive to fix, and no amount of lobbying by Bruce Wayne can help. It's declared "No Man's Land". Everyone is given one month to leave and then the bridges are bombed.(Gotham is very similar to Manhattan in that it's an island city.) Arkham is opened up. The costumed villains run amuck, and the cops who choose to remain are not much more than another gang.

This is sounding very. Similar.
