This letter appeared in the Voice of the People in today's Daily News.

Steve Chaddock wrote:Long Island City: I won’t see the new version of “Wonder Woman” because it won’t make America great again. It has nothing to do with America. But my lesbian friend Daisy saw it twice in one day and told me it was nirvana and that she can’t wait for “Wonder Woman II.”

Always sobering to find myself and Steve on the same side of an issue.

You are joking right? The Daily News actually published that letter?

Steve's apparently an old hand with his IBM Selectric. Writing to Mike Lupica in 1998:

Dear Lip,
I'm glad Hideki Irabu hasn't choked anybody yet.

Back with The Voice of the People in 2014:

Long Island City:

If Judge Judy gets paid $60 million a year handing out justice to the brainless, it’s worth it. Loonies, dummies, morons and once in a while someone with an IQ of 50 makes Judge Judy a genius.

Love ya, Judy.

To the Mighty Quinn in 2010:

3D mania is running wild. Yes, it will be on cable television and I will endorse it. I remember in the '70s I saw 'The Stewardesses,' a porn movie, in 3D, and I thought I was in bed with three people.


I'm guessing Steve will NOT get tired of all the winning.

I thought it was amazing. Definitely the best of the recent DC movies.

Great film that deserves to be on the Mount Rushmore of comic superhero movies with the Christopher Reeve Superman, the Tim Burton Batman and The Dark Knight. The final confrontation was the usual dull CGI fight, though it worked better because it had some ideas behind it. And the No Man's Land scene reached the level of cinema classic.

The obligatory fight scene is the soft underbelly of these superhero movies. Some are better than others, but in just about every case they leave my mind wandering. Two examples of bad fight scenes that immediately come to mind are the 2008 Hulk movie and Iron Man 3. But there are many others.

even her nipples are powerful. they require industrial-strength pouches.

Oh, I had that thought that she was excited to see me, and since she's so powerful, ...
Thanks. Good name.

George Clooney wonders what the big deal is with nipple pouches....

Joel Schumacher has recently openly apologized for Batman Forever, including the nipple pouches.

Yeah, it stunk, but I didn't find it particularly worse than the other three movies from that serial.

George Clooney (at a surprise appearance at New York Comic Con a couple of years ago.) wrote:I saw Adam West backstage. The only thing I could say to him was, "I'm sorry"


BTW, I don't think Wonder Woman has nipple pouches. I think that's just a reflection in that particular shot.

Here's another image of her in costume. It doesn't look like there are any nipple bumps.

That picture of Gal Gadot is even more stunning than the first.

And the first was pretty stunning.

And your inability to discern any qualitative difference between BATMAN FOREVER and BATMAN (89), or even BATMAN RETURNS, is why you are the lone voice of dissent in this WONDER WOMAN lovefest.

I don't have an inability. I have a different opinion. I have a tremendous ability.

Enjoy the lovefest. I'm not the sole dissenter. Not if you look around a little.
