Like all lovers of "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!" Ivan Brandon led a procession of tweets regarding the death of Captain Lou Albano this morning. Nevertheless, the mustachioed wrestler and actor will be fondly remembered across the Twittersphere today no matter how events unfold.
Greg Rucka, meanwhile, just wanted to get on a plane yesterday, but was a apparently too excitable for the airline he was flying. Check out what both of those writers had to say, along with wisdom from Stan Lee, a great Halloween costume for the young ones and Avengers cupcakes from the folks at Marvel.
It's all in the Twitter Report for October 14, 2009.

@ruckawriter Epic fail United airliness/SkyWest. I'm at LAX. The plane? Over the Pacific. Ran to the gate. Was told I was "frightening" people.

Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@smilinstanlee I hope tweeting catches on. Wouldn't it be cool if things like income tax instructions hadda be written in 140 letters or less?
