I neglected to look at my World Almanac Desk Calendar yesterday - - don't judge me, I live alone - - so, before it's too late, I have to post a belated birthday remembrance.
Ninety-two years ago yesterday - - October 24, 1915 - - Bob Kane was born.
The Bob Kane who, along with his partner Bill Finger, created Batman.
Or as I prefer to call him, "The Batman."
This Wikipedia article has some interesting facts about the creation of the Dark Knight, Robin the Boy Wonder, and their arch-nemesis, The Joker, but it's this little tidbit from my little desk calendar that sent boggled my mind...
Bob Kane created The Batman when he was 24 years old.
At 24, I could barely tell my left from my right without humming The National Anthem.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Kane. And thanks.
