Hey, Gotham City, you would never find a way to corrupt a struggling playwright who just got his first break, would you?
Wouldn't it be nice to see Batman occasionally fight "normal" crimes, like this one?
Or perhaps that's the true curse of Gotham--that Batman has become so obsessed with the big picture that he no longer has time for "little" crimes like this one. Who has time to rescue a family threatened by a mugger in an alley, when the Joker is enslaving the entire city? He's lost the mission a bit, hasn't he...?
Ah, forget it, snell--it's Gotham...
