Planning on participating in Bike to Work Day May 21st? Then why not Bike to Your Library on May 22nd! Join us this Saturday for the Tour de DCPL and explore D.C. through your libraries! The Tour de DCPL is a library-oriented bicycle ride of downtown D.C., stopping at five DC Public Libraries. It is being organized by bicycle-loving library staff as a way to promote environmentally friendly transportation to D.C.'s libraries. The ride meets at the Martin Luther King Library (901 G St. N.W.) at 9 a.m. and begins shortly after. Northwest One Library is a stop on the route! The ride will end back at Martin Luther King Library around 12:30 p.m.
Making Sense of M. Day
Published on Friday, April 30, 2010
Superheroes aren't supposed to die. They're not supposed to lose their powers and get old like the rest of us. They're supposed to win and keep winning.
And they did win. They stayed young and strong. The bad guys lost, and we waited for the next issue. This narrative was working fine until M. Day. Somehow, the bad guys win, the superheroes lose, and we're left waiting for Wolverine to wake up and say it was all a dream. But there is no dream. This is the Marvel Universe's Earth-616.
