The invalid lay on his bedroll, looking at the pool where–allegedly–one could receive healing. His eyes were blank–not thoughtful, certainly not hopeful. He stared at a familiar scene, indifferently. Thirty-eight years of this view had bred a leaden acceptance.
This was home. Nothing would ever change. His family had dumped him here–they didn’t stick around to make sure he could get into the pool when it was stirred up. He couldn’t move himself quickly enough, and it had been years since he’d even tried.

Tellingly, that hasn’t been just the opinion of various wild-eyed conservative pundits like yours truly, but also that of a living liberal saint in American political history:
In case you (somehow) hadn’t heard, one of the best family films in recent memory will finally get its sequel:
(via Total Film) – “…Yep, The Incredibles 2 is a reality, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Officially announced by Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger at today’s shareholder’s meeting, that sound you can probably hear is Pixar fans’ brains exploding.
The project is in the very early stages – Brad Bird has only just put pen to paper – but just the fact that Disney / Pixar will be continuing the adventures of Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and their children Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack is reason enough to celebrate…”

There may still be hope for the upcoming generation… Below are two articles VERY much worth examining, each of which backs-up the sentiment so clearly expressed in the cartoon.
The first one’s by Michael Barone and is from several weeks back. However, it’s just as pertinent today as it was then, I promise:
