Let's start with the naked, Santa-hatted rambler, Willy, AKA Stephen Gough - an ex Royal Marine - as noted in my last post. Some say he is batty. He never made it home and was re-arrested for breach of the peace yesterday after a three-day resurrection; the location Townhill, Dunfermline - a place so quiet that it's wiki article really only mentions that it shares a church minister with the neighbouring village of Kingseat.
Also up here in Scotland, Strathclyde police chief constable, Stephen House, has advised that he and his officers will now take responsibility for the Olympic football events due to take place in Glasgow, the security company G4S unable to deliver on it's contract as with London, where we see the military taking ownership.

Meanwhile, over in the USA, mild-mannered James "Jimmy" Holmes, goes berserk in Aurora, Denver, at the Batman premier, killing a dozen and injuring many more. Denver airport is a hotbed for freemasonic symbolism, see Vigilant Citizen for examples.
Down in London, the Olympic torch was abseiled into the Tower of London last night as I noted a couple of posts ago. It was dropped from a Sea King helicopter by Royal Marine, Martin Williams at 20.12 BST, who handed the torch to Dame Kelly Holmes (no relation to James) on the rampants. Lord Coe, Chairman of the Games, noted that the tower was a fitting point for the flame to enter London because "it is where the power and the significance of the Monarch resides". (BBC News)
Curiously, back in 1967, Batman visited the Tower of London in a episode called The Bloody Tower. It was season 3, episode 13 of the television series. An image from today's mail on line shows James Holmes parent's home. It appears to be house number 13310, whilst his motor vehicle carries the registration number 119 ROC. The reader may need reminding that in Danny Boyle's Olympic opening ceremony there are due to be 119 farmyard animals; not forgetting the 911 reversal (see my post Caterwauling).
For sure, a Dark Knight is rising, one does not have to be Sherlock to see that.

were later removed. The entire structure was demolished in 2008"
Note - Madonna is due to play in Edinburgh tonight, talk is that if she produces a gun on stage she is liable to be arrested.
