Wrath, by Dennis O’Neil

Dennis O'Neil

Dennis O'Neil was born in 1939, the same year that Batman first appeared in Detective Comics. It was thus perhaps fated that he would be so closely associated with the character, writing and editing the Dark Knight for more than 30 years. He's been an editor at Marvel and DC Comics. In addition to Batman, he's worked on Spider-Man, Daredevil, Iron Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, the Question, The Shadow and more. O'Neil has won every major award in the industry. His prose novels have been New York Times bestsellers. Denny lives in Rockland County with his wife, Marifran.

    A tycoon is interviewed about how he got his start. "I hate to admit it, but I got my start gambling," He relates. "I was a terrible gambler, and had actually lost everything I had. I was in Las Vegas without a penny to my name, I had to go to the bathroom, and as if my life was not going badly enough, the only one I could use nearby was a pay toilet.""I found a man, begged him for a dime. I insisted he give me his name and address, and I would return the dime somehow. He demurred, but I insisted. He gave me the dime, and I returned to the restroom. By my luck, someone had left a stall open. I finished my business, but such was my gambling mania, I took that last dime and put it in a slot machine. It hit for five hundred dollars. Still unable to control myself, I went to a roulette table. By the end of the night, I had made back all of my money, was $50,000 dollars ahead, and was resting in a free room at the hotel.""I knew I had been given a second chance. I walked out of the casino the next morning, invested my money, worked hard, and became the man you see seated before you.""I swear to you, if I I could ever find that man, I would give him half my fortune.""What do you mean?" asked the interviewer. "You said he gave you his name and address.""Not him," said the tycoon, "The guy who left the bathroom door open!"

    So much for the "only in cases of death, with at least a month's notice." And I think 80 is the low end for Methuselah. Sincerely, One of Those NYU Brats

      When it comes to Methuselah, I take Bugs Bunny's attitude — as expressed in Bob Clampett's classic "The Old Gray Hare." The scene was set in the year 2000, which means that at the beginning of the cartoon he would have had to have been over 25. Maybe so, but it seems kind of unlikely to me. Yep. This is my real job.
