Cincinnati has a masked super hero. So they tell me.

More than that, he is from my town of Milford, outside of Cincinnati. He is known as the “Shadow Hare.” Believe it or not, there is a tradition in our legal system for the concept of the “citizen’s arrest.” Still, this takes it to the limit, especially as the commentator makes a note of the risks involved.

It gets better (or worse, depending on your point of view). This guy has gone national, and the story from the NBC affiliate has gotten attention from CNN, and even the big-time sources like (gasp!) TMZ. He is listed on some sort of national super hero registry, so you know this is not just some uncertified loser running around in tights and a mask, but a genuinely certified (certifiable?) loser running around in tights and a mask.

I feel better already.

I’m not as sure that he and his cohort will, though, after some punk-@$$ kids beat the crap out of them. View these clip from WLWT for yourself, as we feature yet one more quirk of the “Queen City of the West,” for this week’s Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

I should really get home more often.
