“A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!”
—Newly-anointed VP candidate Joe Biden’s August 2008 first joint campaign appearance with his patron, who needed no introduction — and certainly not this one.
* As a young newlywed in his early 20s, Biden and his wife named their German shepherd puppy “Senator”, or “Tor” for short.
* For more than 35 years in the U.S. Senate, Biden rode Amtrak 80 minutes each way between Washington D.C. and Wilmington, Delaware, every working day. Arriving late to a Judiciary Committee meeting, he once said, “I keep telling my colleagues—if they fully funded Amtrak, I would not be late… And some suggest that’s why don’t fully fund Amtrak.”
“Comics are expensive. Don’t make me resent the money I spend buying yours. Every single moment in your script must either move the story along or demonstrate something important about the characters — preferably both — and every panel that does neither is a sloppy waste of space.”—Mark Waid (via comicquotations)
