Well, it looks like it was a light day on the supidity front over at Stupidity Reigns with only one thing for me to comment on.

The Culprits: The Italian legal system.
The Issue: The phrase, “You are nobody.”

DarkOra’s Response: Way back in the day, there was a talented essayist by the name of Philip Dormer Stanhope. He was the 4th Earl of Chesterfield and is commonly referred to as Lord Chesterfield. He wasn’t the greatest man in the world (often considered a selfish man and a bit of a ridiculer), but his collected Letters to his Son contains some tidbits of wisdom and clever observation, including this lovely quote:

“If you are not in fashion, you are nobody.”

A phrase Italy should be familiar with since they have the likes of Versace, Armani, Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, and tons of other fashion designers.

In comics, you can support the cause by helping out the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. You could become a member, pick up a copy of Even More Fund Comics, or buy a t-shirt like this classic from Frank Miller:
