Keith watched the Michael Keaton/Tim Burton version of Batman for the first time in years on Netflix the other day. The scene where the Joker shoots Jack Palance is the first time Keith remembers being entertained by a death scene rather than horrified, because he realized that it as just a movie. The memory led to a chat with Dan Levy about the most memorable death scenes. Keith has a potential solution for all of the abandoned buildings in Detroit, and it comes from Abraham Lincoln. A Delta Airlines pilot locked himself out of the cockpit, causing the co-pilot to have to step up and land the airplane, Ted Striker-style. Plus, it turns out that Russia really knows how to hold a grudge.
