If you're looking for a bit of a breather from the
increasingly vicious Presidential campaign by checking out "The Dark Knight
Rises" this weekend, you might be disappointed. At least according to some
pundits, who think the issues are being acted out metaphorically in the
film. I don't think I'd be giving away
any spoilers by pointing out that the bad guy that the billionaire superhero
Batman fights is called "Bane," not unlike the "Bain" corporation that is so much
a topic of controversy these days.
