Of course we know that life isn’t fair, but sometimes its utter cruelty is tough to fathom.
Lenny Robinson was a guy from Maryland who made a few bucks when he sold his cleaning business years ago, so he decided to do something good with some of the money.
He spent $5,000 on a custom-made Batman outfit and had a Lamborghini transformed into the Batmobile, and he visited sick kids in hospitals.
That kind of karma should count for something.
He was killed last night when the Batmobile developed engine trouble on a Maryland highway. When he was looking under the hood, someone plowed into the back of it, and the Batmobile killed Robinson.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
