There's good stretching and then there's this
Don't try this at home. The New York Times attempts to analogize the "Heroes" season premiere to the current fiscal crisis.
I think "Heroes" season 2 was really a prescient examination of the likely reemergence of Sino-Russian power in a post-Communist world economy where producing states are in perpetual conflict with regional powers whose economies are based on resource extraction.
UPDATE: Can't believe I blew two hours watching that "Heroes" premiere. It's amazing how something so dumb can be so compelling. This year, I'm breaking the habit, though. I swear.
