Let’s be honest here. It’s fun to watch Batman, but it’s not fun to be Batman. And if the kid you raised grows up to dress like a bat and wander the night fighting the mentally insane, you failed that child.

To the Editor:
Michele Bachmann received 4,823 votes in the Iowa straw poll (“After Iowa Vote, Republicans Face a New Landscape,” front page, Aug. 15). There are apartment complexes in Manhattan with more people.
Fewer than 17,000 people bothered to vote, which would be a smaller than average crowd for a New York Rangers hockey game. Why is it being covered as if something actually happened?
