I for one am more concerned that he got a Pulitzer for a pro-torture political cartoon.
The Fire Rises....
Not the first time this kind of thing happened; Demolition Man featured a cryogenically-frozen murderer named "Scott Peterson".
I actually found the one with Venezuelan oil wells spouting sickles and hammers to be more hilarious.
"I don't know what socialism actually is so I'm just going to assume it's the Russians again."
Well the reason I mentioned it was because in the pre-DKRises Nolanverse, the same area is called "South Hinkley".
It was changed sometime between Begins and TDKRises.
I'm just saying what it was probably referencing, considering that Gotham is an AU NYC.
I realized that only after I posted. Hence the edit.
Me either, but holy **** what a hack. This is what I expect from the cartoonist for a high school paper.
Now I get who The Onion's Kelly is parodying, signature included.
I could swear I've seen this somewhere before...
Guns don't kill people. Laptops and cell phones kill people.
You could probably kill someone with a laptop. If they let you.
If you hack into a hospital's network just to screw around with prescription orders....
I meant just hitting them with it, but yes.
Just when you thought we as a nation couldn't possibly handle this tragedy any more inappropriately, here come the conspiracy nutters - a Professor at a Florida university says he thinks the Sandy Hook shooting was a government hoax:
Two points. I may have made them before, but they bear repeating:
1) Conspiracy kookiness - from people of every political stripe; left, right, and center - has come out of the woodwork and off of the fringes to become a disturbingly common and prominent part of our national discourse.
2) These mass shootings and the people who commit them have increasingly become blank screens onto which people project their confirmation biases. Everyone seems to be doing it - people on the left, people on the right, people with every kind of agenda, and people who are just batpoop crazy.
Really, humanity? Really?
OBVIOUSLY a conspiracy.
I loved the comment that said this was carried out by the 'Autism Speaks' foundation to further their agenda.
Yeah, everyone knows it was actually shamanistic Voodoo Zen magic carried out by the Quasispectrum Branch of the Secret Order of Shriner Kabbalist Atlanteans from beyond the veil of death, using the dark arts gleamed from the cerebellum of Lee Harvey Oswald's compatriot on the dark side of the grassy knoll!
... I'm not sure if I made that up or if that's an actual headline from that site. Mindwipes by the aliens? Probably.
If I hadn't already been up half the night with a bad headache, I'd probably go beat my head against the wall reading about some of these conspiracy theories here. Autism Speaks? Really? Geez!
Ideally guns would be banned, but if we can ensure that paranoid delusional conspiracy nuts can't get access to guns, that would be a fantastic start.
