I think we need new heroes.  For anyone who reads Urban Fantasy, I’m voting for Harry Dresden, Sandman Slim, Suzie Shooter, John Taylor, Razor Eddie and Dead Boy.  Eddie Drood would work and so would The Wild Witch and her sister.  There are others, of course, but these are some of my favorites.  We need someone who doesn’t recognize the law but always does what’s right for everyone else.  Okay,  maybe not always but most of the time.  People willing to stick their necks out for the good of all, kind of thing.  People who can take a hit, smile and stand on the side of freedom and right.  Those who do what has to be done in order to make sure that people are free and safe from the ugly people in charge.  I love these characters and think a few of them sprinkled throughout the white house and elsewhere would be a good thing…they can’t always be bought and they can’t be controlled by the bad guys.

Sure, you may be thinking…wow, those characters would be out of control, but no, not really.  The government and people in charge right now are out of control.  The people I’ve mentioned would make sure that didn’t happen and none of them seek power of their own, they just want to keep the game fair.    🙂  These are my heroes.  I’ve gone to Fictional Characters because politically speaking, no living person is worth the title and the puppet masters need Sandman Slim to pay them a visit, he could bring Suzie along, just for fun.
