Dependable Erection

Are they trying to tell us something?

Reader JH alerts me to some surreptitious photos from the set of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight.

Of particular interest is the logo of the Gotham Police Department.

He wonders where they've drawn their inspiration from. Gotham City, of course, is a stand in for New York, and here's the NYPD logo.

Not a bad likeness, actually, but is there something maybe even more alike? Something a little closer to home?

Well, whaddaya know. We may have a winner.

Now, before you go saying, hey, all PD logos look alike, i've already googled "police department logo" for you. Take a look. I think you'll agree that given the wide variety of PD logos, there might be something more than coincidence at work here.

And as JH notes, the Gotham PD was portrayed in a less than flattering fashion in the most recent Batman movie. Let's hope that new Chief Jose Lopez, Sr., gives Hollywood a good reason to go looking elsewhere for a model for poor police departments in the future.
