Fucking hell: Ohio Man Arrested for Carrying Weapons, Ammo into Showing of The Dark Knight Rises.
Police say a theater manager was suspicious of the man who was carrying a satchel when he walked into the 10 PM Saturday showing of TDKR. The manager and an off-duty police officer searched the bag and found a gun, ammunition and several knives, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. The man was arrested without incident. The newspaper says police search the man's home last night, but it's not known what, if anything, was found.
Iain and I went with our friends A & M to see TDKR for a second time this past weekend. During the showing, the film stopped and someone came walking into the front of the theater. It was just a moment before the lights went up, revealing a theater employee who informed us there were electrical issues due to a terrible storm, but, in that moment, my heart skipped with panic.

That's the thing about terrorism. It leaves terror where none used to be.

We have a big problem. And no one in a position of power seems inclined to try to solve it.
