Look! Up In The Sky! It's A Bird! It's A Plane! No, It's Obama!

By Victor J. Ward

I was sitting outside a Palo Alto Starbucks with a good friend. We were both enjoying a cup of coffee as we discussed family and business.

Suddenly, we heard a sound and I saw a disturbingly large number of people getting out of their chairs and looking into the sky as if they were looking for Superman.

And, indeed, they were looking for Superman. And I'm not talking about Superman cloaked as Clark Kent. This was Superman in the flesh.

Of course, none of the sycophants could actually see Superman because the sound wasn't coming from his red cape as he broke the sound barrier. You see, Superman decided to take flight powered by some type of military chopper.

I saw old and young getting out of their seats and start taking videos and pictures of the underside of a plane. How thrilling! I saw looks of awe on the faces of several women. Forget that 50 Shades of Grey guy; we are talking about Superman! I'm betting that they will never wash their eyes again. The cameras will immediately be placed on eBay: "Buy it now! The camera that took a picture of the plane that may have been transporting Superman! $50,000!"

I must admit: I, too, took a look into the sky. Granted, I didn't get out of my chair. And I didn't take a picture. And my expression wasn't one of wonder and amazement.

Well, that's not exactly true. I wondered why Superman, since he refused to put on his tights, didn't just drive from San Francisco to Palo Alto. It's a really nice drive, especially if you take the 280 freeway.

Then I realized that Superman was probably running late so he couldn't be bothered with the transportation used my mere mortals.

Of course, Superman travels by Air Force One. Wonder Woman has her own private (invisible) jet.

    The job at the law firm he had when he was younger was redistributing government money.
