75 Years of Batman

Happy Batman Day!! Today marks 75 years of the Dark Knight. The Caped Crusader. Comic and book stores nationwide are hosting special events, parties, games, and giveaways for this momentous occasion. Some celebrations are even lasting through the weekend. As they should:

 Even Batman's fortune cookie fortune is heroic

"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight."

I don't know a hero more deserving of his own day. So many styles have shaped his suits and many fortunate actors have donned the mask and cape that are synonymous with justice. I've had a great day and I hope you have too. Did you do anything to celebrate? 

Now, "riddle me this, riddle me that. Who's afraid of the big, black bat?" ;-)
