Farewell Batman

It isn’t often that we get to have a real superhero in our midst. But that’s exactly what we had in Adam West. The world lost a true class act […]

I’ve been so quiet lately. I didn’t write one word all last week. My mother wouldn’t believe it if she were still alive. Is this what peace feels like? It’s […]
