Since... well, at least since the accession to power of George W. Bush, we've been living among people who have a real -- a serious -- problem with separating reality from fiction. Maybe Reagan started the trend with his "service" in World War II. Was Michael Jackson real or an entertainment industry concoction? You're sure he was real?
Finally, in what may be the beginning of a new era, fiction and reality meet, shake hands, and even go on a fun date. Neil deGrasse Tyson, the head of New York's Hayden Planetarium, works closely with Superman in an effort to see his home planet.
