I saw a couple things on CNN this morning that are noteworthy.

First, Rev. Joel Osteen’s wife is standing trial for assault.“Brown alleges Victoria Osteen threw her against a bathroom door and elbowed her in the left breast during an outburst over a stain on her first-class seat.”

Classy.

Second, both of our presidential candidates want to be the same superhero. Batman. Considering that in this movie, Batman succeeds through the responsible use of illegal wiretapping, and has always been more Nietzsche than Gandhi, I don’t find this idea comforting.

Edit: Caveat – I myself have always wanted to be Batman, make no mistake. But I don’t also want to be our next president. The intersection of the two is the frightening part.
