My New Year's resolution is to put in a good word for somebody who doesn't deserve one, and the sooner I get this out of the way the better.

The picture above is a frame from Batman Begins, offered Sunday on a premium TV channel. It poses the question: Did Chicago judge Donald Trump by a double standard?

We scorned his narcissistic display of naked egotism. Yet did local movie audiences recoil from the sight of swaggering Wayne Tower? Did critics thunder, He's no better than his archfoes! Or did we think, Behold the glittering corporate headquarters of Bruce Wayne, philanthropist and socialite, not to mention Gotham's silent sentinel, Batman. Cool!
