It is too on the map

January 20, 2008

GEOFF BOUCHER wrote [in his article on the upcoming film "Iron Man"], "You can't find Metropolis on a real U.S. map, but if you did, it's a sure bet that its harbor would sit on the Atlantic" ["A Hometown Hero," Jan. 13].

But Mr. Boucher, there is a Metropolis, Ill. And yes, we are on the map. And yes, we are the official hometown of Superman. Each year, during June, we host a "Superman Celebration."

We are a small community of 6,500 great community-minded people. Our harbor is located on the Ohio River.

We'd love for you to come and visit our town any time.

Deneal Bullock
