"Kansas Lunatic Charged With Public Bestiality".
Oh, I kid! This is just another example of how much better people in the DCU are than, well, us.
Me, you, we'd try to get a front page story by racing to crime scenes or unearthing government corruption. Budding reporter Clark Kent, heh, he can get a front page story simply by putting on a gorilla suit (which, you'll note, is rented; he couldn't afford to buy his own until later in his career).
Oh, and in case you didn't recognize it from the Superman Showcase, this is from a little tale called:
"How Perry White Hired Clark Kent".
Naturally. Wouldn't you hire the man in that panel to work at your great metropolitan newspaper?
There's a Jayson Blair comment in there somewhere
Hey Scipio--you seen this yet?
My guess is that the Planet was not "a great metropolitan newspaper" -- rather it was the local version of the New York Post.
Well, yes, of course. "SUPERMAN PUTS OUT TREEHOUSE FIRE": Page one Headline. "PRESIDENT RESIGNS IN DISGRACE" goes on page A-17 in the Planet.
(Also stunned Scip isn't blogging about that link yet...)
Oh, I've been told (Ian Brill clued me in); busy fuming about it first.
"Must ... let ... Devasting Reply Powers ... build..."
Maybe Mr. White was afraid of what this lunatic would do if he didn't hire him.
Thanks for your article, quite effective info.
