- As a huge Superman fan, I'm (Rob) excited about this milestone. I still collect and read Superman comics every month.

Did you know that there's a Superman exhibit, located on the baggage claim level near carousel 10 in Cleveland's airport? I didn't, and it makes me curious.
The best birthday recognition will come this June when the movie "the Man of Steel" comes out in theaters. It stars hunky, muscular, handsome Henry Cavill of Tudors fame. Can't wait.
