Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (Who Watches the Watchmen?) asked Juvenal.
Answer: we do. The Watchmen movie, that is. Peter, Carol, Raven, Iain, Emma, and I are all going to see the midnight initial showing at the Pacific Science Center IMAX.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever been geeky enough to watch the midnight opening of a movie before. But it was Peter’s idea.
Peter and I shared an apartment in 1990–92 when we were both grad students at Brown, and it was his copy of Watchmen that I first read.
And so the loop closes.
