For Captain Steve Tolbert, US Army, Iraq veteran of the Surge, who has a role as a police officer in the latest Batman movie, while also being a professor of economics and political science, and an entrepreneur and accomplished distance runner, and father, if he wouldn't put the order that way.
Professor Tolbert and I met when Steve needed a sub, to do some Army things. As people, him you want with a rifle next to you.
They came to his base in New Jersey looking for extras for the Dark Knight new movie, which to me they found the right person, always serving always entrepreneurial, who you want more Americans to be like.
As to how I think of what happened, in The Candide, Voltaire has a scene that stays with one as to the meaning of such things as the unhappy way one could chose to remember a movie, Batman Returns.
In that scene, the character Pangloss tries to rationalize the Earthquake in his usual way,
The Jesuit merely laughs, and says, "My child, have you not heard of original sin?"
Evil, and good.
Batman was created to fight evil, and so if it's a tragedy what happened, the better part of it is an American veteran of Iraq, and professor, who gets to take his little girl to see where Daddy is on the big screen, as usual, on the team of the Good Guys.
