Our man in Amsterdam, er, South Austin, The League of Melbotis has purchased a new car.

He has chosen a shiny blue Honda element.

I was talking to Lauren about this last night and she said, “Isn’t the blue element sort of a superman blue?”

I assented, it may be a bit more electric than Kal-El’s longjohns, but it’s definitely super-ish.

“Do you think he chose it on purpose”? “The Blue?” “You know, to make putting a red ‘S’ on it easier?”

Knowing that our friend The League is into Superman in a big way, I thought it was likely.

But, lo, what sound breaks like a speeding bullet, a blog post by The Purchaser (“I’m the purchaser, Mission Accomplished!”) himself.
