A Senseless Tragedy at a Dark Knight Rises Screening

A gunman in Denver, Colorado broke into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises last night, killing 12 people and injuring many, many more. The man is in police custody, but his abhorrent, despicable actions are going to make it hard to enjoy what should have been a pretty good nerd weekend. I know I generally shy away from the horrible and genuinely sad here at Topless Robot, but it felt wrong for me not to acknowledge this tragedy. There’s nothing you or I can do, no way we can make things better, no way to make sense of such madness; but when you see Dark Knight Rises this weekend, please take a moment to think about the people killed for no reason, and the hundreds of lives impacted by one man’s insanity and evil. Right now, unfortunately, it’s all we can do.
