Super-man and boy

Last night someone asked if I want children. No, I said, but I wouldn’t mind grandchildren. Superman’s pops had it right. Marlon Brando, who played the superhero’s father Jor-El in the 1980 film, raised his son with video messages from the grave. Talk about emotional detachment. Indipensable was the advice: “Never interfere with human history.”
If only George Bush Snr had been as wise.

(A recut Superman II is to be released this year)
