Celebrate America. Eat a Hot Dog

Last year, Joey Chestnut set the world record by eating 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Can anyone top that? We'll find out today at the 99th Annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, held each year on Independence Day in Coney Island, New York.

The Great Anniversary Festival

On July 2, 1776, the Second Continental Congress passed Virginian Richard Henry Lee's resolution for independence from Great Britain, and thus was born the United States of America.

The adoption of the declaration of that new-found independence two days later is what we now celebrate, but the real secret of America's independence is the role that Booster Gold played in ensuring it ever happened.

Would there have been a Declaration of Independence without Booster Gold?

What really happened in Independence Hall in the summer of 1776? The world may never know.

New Releases: Justice League International #11

In celebration of American Independence Day, today DC Comics is releasing Justice League International #11. A 4-page preview of the issue is online at Comic Book Resources. (Thanks to MetalWoman for the link.)

According to DC's advance solicitations at dccomics.com, "the team is defeated at the hands of The Burners," a team of anarchists currently planning to bomb the nation's capital. Hooray!

While the timing may be only coincidental -- what team of anarchist super-villains aren't always trying to blow up national monuments? -- I'm just not sure I want to read a story in which America's foremost hero, Booster Gold, gets his ass handed to him on America's birthday. Maybe tomorrow.

Buy this issue and watch some fireworks with Skeets.

Happy Independence Day

"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival."
-- John Adams
July 2, not July 4, is the actual date that the Second Continental Congress voted to secede from the British Empire. July 4 is the date that the declaration of that decision of independence was signed, and has since become the national Independence Day holiday. One would think that this sort of discrepancy, coupled with the significance of the event, would cause the time period to attract trouble. And it has.

Rip Hunter... Time Master 23

Rip Hunter and his friends have dealt with a George Washington impostor both before and after the Crisis on Infinite Earths (in 1964's Rip Hunter... Time Master #23 and 1990's Time Masters #4). It's only a matter of time before Evil George Washington strikes again!
