Contrary Brin: Roll over, Frank Miller: or why the Occupy Wall Street Kids are Better than the #$%! Spartans
Well, well. I've been fuming silently at Frank Miller for a years. The time's come, so get ready for steam! Because the screech that you just read - Miller's attack on young citizens, clumsily feeling their way ahead toward saving their country - is only the latest example of Frank's astonishing agenda. One that really needs exposure to light.

I'll do it by dissecting - calmly and devastatingly - his most famous and lucrative piece of modern propaganda. The comic book and movie tale about Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae.
