I was nowhere near Arizona yesterday. Honest.

According to an Associated Press story:

Three schools in the north Phoenix suburb of Cave Creek were on lockdown for about 45 minutes Wednesday morning after a student at Desert Arroyo Middle School reported seeing a person dressed as Batman run across campus, jump a fence and disappear into the desert, Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark said.

The student described the person as 6 feet 3 inches tall and possibly male.

"We're assuming it was male, although they did have a mask on," Clark said.

Never assume anything Officer Clark. It could have been Catwoman or Batwoman or Batgirl, or Huntress or any number of Bat-related crime fighters. They just want you to think that it's Batman. Think about it...why would Batman be in the desert? He fights crime in the city.

Seriously, can you imagine how AWESOME it must have been to be a kid at one of these schools? Classes get cancelled because Batman is running around and the cops can't find him. What's next? "Sorry kids. No gym class today. Superman melted the rope climb while he was using his heat-vision to flee from the local police." Those kids are living the dream out there in the desert.
