My Dark Knight

Okay. Now for some non-governor, non-scandal and non-politic related news. New York Times wrote a story about the upcoming Batman sequel, 'The Dark Knight', and the many post-production decisions director Christopher Nolan have the encounter- particularly Heath Ledger's death. 

The article continues to confirm the ongoing speculations that Ledger was both physical and emotionally drained from the role of the Joker. The most eye-catching statement however was Nolan's comparison of the fictional Gotham to the modern day Baghdad. "When you’re dealing with questionable notions like people taking the law into their own hands, you have to really ask, where does that lead? That’s what makes the character so dark, because he expresses a vengeful desire.”

Well, there goes the non-political promise I made earlier. (NYT)
