After the horrible tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, some people may feel like they aren’t safe at the movies, particularly the Batman flick. On the other hand, knowing there is evil in the world and being prepared to confront it, whether at home, at work, on the streets or in a movie theater, may be a healthier approach. Every time one of these unspeakable, evil bastards commits an atrocity like Aurora, Virginia Tech, or, going even further back, McDonald’s (San Ysidro, California), most people will be thankful they weren’t there. But there are a few who will say, “I wish I had been there, I could have made a difference.”
The Domestic Goddess and I will be seeing the Batman movie soon. I pledged to keep her safe when she agreed to put up with me and I will not allow anyone to harm her. Further, and I’m no super-hero, I will not allow Evil to act out his gory drama, any time, anywhere, in my presence. I will not allow it. Evil must always be confronted and destroyed.
