BatKid coverage was way over the top but in this case, that's good.
I mean, you have multitudes of things that happen for a reason. This little kid invigorated a city, a nation, even the world. What's not to like?
And a nod from the big guy.
I'm sure the journalism grotto will find fault with all the news organizations taking part in the kid's dream. So what. They complain about everything.
I was delighted to see the Gotham City Chronicle. (Someone made a joke: The GCC is better than the real paper.)
Phil Matier on KCBS about BatKid and how the city pulled it off: "It just happened." He said it about 15 times, but he's right. And kudos to afternoon anchor, Jeff Bell, who noted that it sometimes takes a year to fix a pothole in SF, but "today, (Friday), everything worked out great."
