Captain America #612

Captain America #612 - Comic of the Day
Be strong Captain America...just like Santa
I do not quite understand why, but when I read the current Captain America storyline which features the United States government trying Bucky Barnes for crimes he committed (assassinations) as the Russian brain washed killer, Winter Soldier I think of the classic line from Miracle on 34th Street (and then repeated in The Santa Clause), "Let Santa go!"

The line clearly has to do with both timing (it's closing in on Christmas) and the idea of an unjust detaining of a person who is a symbol. In the case of Captain America #612, the comic of the day, I am that little girl screaming at the authorities to stop thinking with their books and laws and start thinking with their hearts.

Let Captain America go!
