I hear people talking all the time about the need to get back to the basics. They feel that America has lost its way and turned into a nation of crime, sex, and drugs. And we here at the First Church of the DC Comictician and Latter Day Citizens of the United Federation of Planets couldn't agree more.
But the people who read that big, pictureless comic book called the Holy Bible seem to think the solution to the problem is prayer in school to some guy who could have played lead guitar for the Doobie Brothers, teaching kids about some old white man in the sky, and hanging the ten commandments in our public buildings. I fail to see how any of this is going to accomplish anything. How can these guys who never even took command of Galaxy-class starship fix the problems we face everyday in this country?
This is why I hereby propose another alternative which should prove much more effective: light up the Batsignal over every city and town in America. With Batman on our side we really can't fail, but if we ignore Him; He is most likely going to ignore us. The answer to the problem is clear.
Seriously, if we light up our skies with this great signal which the Bat hath handed down to us to use when we need His protection (or the protection of Robin, Batgirl, and Nightwing) people will think twice before they do something wrong. Throw the Batsignal up every night and explain to our children what it means and watch them grow to respect the laws and common decency upon which this nation was founded.
This is just plain common sense, people. Lobby your city hall, your courthouses, and your public schools to bring America back the basics by showing the Batman that Yes! We, here in this nation full of Gothamites, still believe in Him and still yearn for His love and protection.
