Let’s Race to the Batmobile: RIP Adam West

One of my earliest memories was watching Batman (“in color!”) on ABC. I was born in 1964, so I was 4 years old when the show made its last “atomic batteries to power, turbines to speed” checklist.

Adam West is as much a part of my life as any late baby boomer. He was my babysitter, my first super hero, and a calm voice in my life which at that point was full of instability.
