And Superman, who found and removed the apparent source of the mystery plague yesterday, deserves a round of applause. Olson Alvarez, WSEM Action News 11.”


December 22, 2000:

Rear Admiral Albert Calavacci felt uncomfortable in his old starched uniform as he made his way to the room he’d been told to visit. But he felt better when the woman he came to see recognized him and smiled broadly.

“Admiral Calavicci! What a pleasant surprise! I never thought I would see you again!”

“Thank you, Al.”

“You’re looking good, Mrs. Durrel.”

“Oh, come on. I’m one-hundred and two years old, so please, call me Maggie. Everyone does nowadays. So, sit yourself down and tell me — what’s Sam up to now?”

“Well, right now he’s in 1976, playing — believe it or not — for a semi-pro football team.”
