SF got all giddy yesterday and went all out to help a boy with cancer to fulfill his wish to be a superhero. The make-a-wish foundation hoped for hundreds of volunteers. They got thousands. The mayor was in on it, there was a Lamborghini made to look like the batmobile, city officials, actors, and tons of civilians on the sidelines with signs held up, thanking batkid for reducing crime by “1,000 percent”. What an awesome day. (I like the special Chronicle put out yesterday, with bylines by Clark Kent, Brenda Starr, Lois Lane, and Perry White…photos by Peter Parker….excellent)
Read more here, if you haven’t heard enough elsewhere. I, personally, was charmed by the whole ordeal.
