For now, I'm just going to keep doing the work and hope I don't get fired. If people want to put me up on their walls, I'll love it.
My only problem with fans is when they turn pro. For example, when all the professional writers were fired by DC in the '60s, they brought in a generation of comic book fans who would have paid to have written these stories.
I don't even like firing people. I don't think I've ever said, 'You're fired' to anybody.

Politicians don't like to face unpleasant realities. In truth, nobody does, but as individuals, we have no choice; if we neglect to plan ahead, we are held accountable. Fail to meet your responsibilities at work, and you get fired. Ignore your car's gas gauge, and you get stranded.
