Seeing For Miles....

By now you you have most likely seen the footage of a really great event that took place in San Francisco last week.  If you have not - or if you are like me and deep inside your chest cavity presently home to a charcoal briquette an actual heart once resided you simply need the influx of good karma associated with seeing it again - then you have come to the right place. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Be Calm and Believe in....

....Batkid!


Kudos to five-year-old Miles Scott, City of San Francisco, the people at the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the thousands of people who spent a portion of their Friday at someplace other than their place of business - rooting hard for a young man whose superhero status is beyond dispute. 

Every now and again, something happens that tends to reaffirm my faith in the species - in spite of the genuinely mean-spirited, rotten and petty shit we do to one another.  Friday in San Francisco one such thing occurred.  A little boy's wish was granted.  And in the process, even if was just for that moment, he saved a whole hell of a lot of people. 

Now that is what I call a superhero.
