League of Her Own was okay. Seemed like a female version of Bull Durham. Just Maddona was having all the sex.

So you think it would be a good idea to keep police officers from doing things that are legal and alright for other people to do?

There are people stupid enough to report stolen illegal drugs.

Red Dwarf kicks ass.

Prostitution doesn't make an area crime ridden, not enforcing the laws does. When prostitution is legalized and not obstracized it doesn't become a beach head for crime. See Nevada sex workers.
They make sure no underage, no drugs, no abuse, pay their taxes and ensure good health, working conditions and hygiene. And it works out good, it's not a den of sleeze like Time Square used to be.
Holiers than thou's won't accept reality.

Dude, New York City, guy dressed like a vampire around Time Square? It's not that rare. Especially during the 90's when vamp movies were in.

I remember now, I got this issue. I remember reading it and thinking, duh Morbius, she likes sex. She likes getting money for sex. Just legalize prostitution.

If you think about it, Morbius and the hooker have a lot in common, both have night lives and both suck out guy's innards.

It is legal to grow your hair down to your ass and tie it into a pony tail. It is legal to have a beard, smoke, wear flip flops and call black people niggers. But cops either aren't allowed to do this stuff on the job, or it is frowned upon. Ain't nobody gettin' up in arms about that, because it makes sense. Just like my donut rule.

"Officer, why is there donut glaze on my traffic ticket? Fuck You officer."

Yes it is amazing how these Nevada Whore Houses don't attract more crime to the areas that they operate in. No crackheads, drug dealers, muggers and seedy types hanging out in the alleyways in those areas. Oh wait, there are no alleys , or even people to populate the area around the bunny ranch and the like because they are in a lily white state in THE MIDDLE OF THE FREAKIN' DESERT where only hard workin' middle class and rich guys can afford to take the time out to travel to, let alone walk through front the door of the place.

He sucks blood, she sucks dick. He's disgusting, but she should be commended for a her service to man.

What happened to your opening this time? It got fucked up!

I have been surprised at th number of comics fans who did not like the Spider-man cartoon from the 90s. I was there for every episode! I was there for the original emo Peter wearing his symbiote and getting in people's faces. At the very least, it was better than Spider-man 3, right?

Morbius was a cornball. What happened to him? I guess he got cured or he died or something? I never checked him out in comics form. I liked that he was a vampire who decided to work for good, but Blade wasn't fucking whining about his status as someone who needed blood to satiate himself.

Great review Tim. I really enjoyed it. I even liked 3 of the top 5 songs. Who would have guessed. Now about the Watchman commercials. I think it is great to give people a chance to have their commercial in a movie. Yes they won't get paid much but sometimes it is not about the money but getting the recognition. For example if DC told me I could write a comic for free I would do it. If George Lucas said I could create a character for Star Wars for Free or a scene in one of the movies then I would do it as well. You have to start somewhere and that is a great opportunity to get your name in front of millions so when you do start doing your own movies it adds to your recognition. Also the fact that you are in the credits and your work is now timeless in a major motion picture. I agree with your point but not entirely.

Did you notice that the True Story Swear To God Archive was released. It contains all 17 issues of the Clib's Boy series.

Morbius was last seen in Blade #5, hunting Blade to get him to register.

Cops
Of course they aren't suppose to do certain things while on duty. Certain things are practical not to do cause of the job like flip flops and beards. But off duty, what right does the city have to control them then? Eating donuts isn't a crime nor frown upon. Being an officer who can't walk a beat cause he gets winded is against regulations. Why? cause now you can't do your job properly and you might endanger others.

Actually it seems like the middle of the desert but bunny ranches can only operate in counties of less than 400,000 people. Ok, technically yes, in the middle of the desert, but almost all of Nevada is a desert. So it's sparse, but not totally isolated.

Crime does happen in those counties but can they be directly associated with the brothels? Insane if it were.

Crime doesn't need an alleyway to be comitted. Imagine, "When will people learn to stop building alleyways? It's a crime zone waiting to happen.", thought Bruce Wayne as he bulldozered Crime Alley while in his crime fighting disguise, The AlleyBuster!

The Brothels are regulated. Age requirements, no drugs policies, no abuse, no pimps. Therefore limiting seedy types.
