Intro for November 18, 2013
Toronto has a Crack-Mayor. And San Francisco? San Francisco has Batkid! In case you missed it – little Miles Scott was diagnosed with leukemia when he was just 18 months old. He’s now 5, in remission. Miles’s hero is Batman. So the Make-A-Wish Foundation turned him into Batkid for the day. On Friday, Miles woke up and saved Gotham. He rescued a woman who was strapped to an explosive device by the Riddler. He thwarted a bank robbery. He punked off the Penguin. The police chief was involved, the President sent an encouragement video, even Christian Bale and Ben Affleck posted their support as thousands of volunteers and citizens lined the streets to help Miles realise his dream.
It’s enough to make you hate people a little less. And that’s a promising start to the week. So far it looks good. Because…Brange! It’s been much, much, much too long.
Yours in gossip,
