The Dark Knight Rises Shooting

Early this morning, a heavily armed gunman wearing bulletproof body armor and a gas mask went on a shooting spree at the Dark Knight Rises premiere in Aurora, Colorado, killing 12 and injuring a total of about 50 people. I don't write in this blog as often as I'd like to, so I'm ordinarily not too quick to talk about the latest big news story, even if it's a big tragic event that happened somewhere in the U.S. But whether it's rational or not, this one really struck a chord with me. Why? Because I attended the midnight premiere of Dark Knight Rises here in Carbondale, Illinois.

St. Louis Earth Day 2012

I've wanted to check out St. Louis Earth Day for years now. Somehow, in years past, the timing never worked out for me. This year, though, when I heard that the theme was "Heroes for the Planet", I knew that I had to be there! My friend Aur "Da Energy Mon" put me in touch with one of the organizers so that we could discuss how to bring a Real Life Superhero presence to the festival. Before I knew it, I found myself waking up at 5:30 a.m. on Earth Day so that I could get ready and to head to St. Louis!
