In case you haven’t heard, Nov. 15th was BatKid day In San Francisco Ca. I can’t see (long story) so typing is hard today – but here are links and a video of this incredibly sweet gesture in all it’s glory…
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Batkid is fighting crime on the mean streets of San Francisco.
Television news footage showed 5-year-old Miles Scott, aka Batkid, leaving the city’s Union Square in one of two Batmobiles on Friday morning. The vehicles — two black Lamborghinis with Batman decals — were surrounded by media and onlookers.
The drive through city streets is part of a day of events organized by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill Miles’ wish to be Batkid. Miles was diagnosed with leukemia and is in remission.
The Lamborghinis were escorted by police, who also blocked off roads. Batkid’s first caper was rescuing a damsel in distress from cable car tracks. He was also scheduled to capture the Riddler as he robs a downtown bank and receive a key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee.
There was also live-streaming of the entire event and the SF Chronicle published a special Gotham City edition of the paper. Well here go the tears and now I really can[t see…

Even Pres. Obama Vimeo’d his congratulations to Miles… How good is that!
