    The main San Francisco NPR station owns/operates a sister station in my town, so my NPR feed comes directly from SFO. Heard this this morning. Great stuff here; definitely similar to Jack Hoffman/Team Jack in Nebraska.

    Ed Li (mayor of San Francisco) gave Miles a key to the city this morning for saving Gotham from the Penguin. For what this kid has gone through, Bane, TwoFace, Penguin, Joker, the Riddler, and Mr. Freeze have nothing to take out this hero.

    Of all the bad stories to come out of America lately, this is a truly heartwarming thing to read about.

    I love it, and it really is brilliant that it could happen. My new favourite Batman!

    I saw this a few weeks ago and first thought was this should be a YouTube video. That must have been insanely cool...

    The whole thing is amazing. It's really been my favorite thing on the Internet today and I really appreciate how much work went into doing something for this little boy.

    This a very heartwarming story. And it is only made better that the kid's cancer is in remission.

    So good to hear a positive story coming out of the US for a change. Lets hope his cancer stays away.

    Such a great story! I wish I was in SF to see this transformation.
