They made this just for me, put it on in Los Angeles and everything, yet somehow I missed it:
Via Scott McCloud.
That's right: The Doctor as Batman via Scott McCloud.

Now there's one confusing regeneration. Maybe it's the kind of thing that happens to Time Lords as they approach their 12th. The Master might make a good Dr. Doom.

If the Eleventh regenerated into Bruce Wayne, I'd be in a kind of Nerd Heaven that I never thought imaginable.
There's actually a larger issue here, at least with me, because I've frequently thought that if you let Wayne become 900 years old, he'd essentially become the Doctor: no special powers, per se; a love of toys; a joy taken in outwitting opponents; etc. The only difference is that the Batman fights, but like the Doctor, abjures the use of guns ... but over time, and with a proliferation of toys, I think the Batman might renounce kicking just as strongly as shooting.
(It's summer, I'm burnt to a crisp, and am allowed this little bit of Nerd Heaven, I do believe.)

Okay, if you have frequently thought this, even comic book guy would be entitled to think you need to get out more.

Unfortunately, with a two-hour commute, your choices are limited to 1) actually re-listening to the second hour of All Things Considered or 2) noodling on in your own head about material you're writing book chapters on. I take it you can see what route I sometimes take.
