Los Angeles To Shine the Bat-Signal in Honor of Adam West

After the tribute finished, the words "The City of Los Angeles Honours Adam West 1928-2017" were projected underneath the Bat- signal. West, who portrayed Batman in the classic 1966-68 TV series of the same name, died on June 9 at the age of 88.

He was most famous for playing Batman in the 1960s TV series.

"So I am a real life chief of police, and I can not tell you how many times I have wanted to turn on the Bat-Signal", he said.

James, clearly making a sex joke, went after Green on Instagram . Kevin Durant's former teammates have chosen a side in the beef.

While this is not the first tribute to the actor, it is perhaps one of the more interactive for fans of the first Batman.

For those unaware, the world said goodbye to Adam West on Saturday after a brief run-in with leukemia. West's relatives are requesting that any donations be made to the Adam West Memorial Fund for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, which supports children with cancer and their families. I'd turn to the people of Los Angeles, but today, with our Mayor, we get to turn to the Caped Crusader.

The live-action "Batman" show, starring West along with Burt Ward as his sidekick Robin and a collection of colorful villains, was inspired by a long-running comic book series.

But with his wins in last month's presidential election and Sunday's parliament vote, he has routed the old political class. The conservative Republicans and its allies are set to form the largest opposition block with 97 to 133 seats.

The bat signal is a key feature in the Batman universe. The episode, titled "The Dating Game", sees Mayor Adam West win an auction for a medieval castle-themed restaurant.

"Like you, we all spent many hours in front of the TV, same bat time, same bat channel", Garcetti told the crowd. They will light up the sky with the bat-signal.

West's wife and children attended the event, Garcetti said.

China efforts on N Korea 'have not worked out'
Mr Warmbier was imprisoned for 17 months before a diplomatic effort from the USA secured his early release from prison. North Korea released Warmbier last week and said he was being freed "on humanitarian grounds".

"I grew up watching him", the 29-year-old said. Without the success of the original Batman series, it is hard to imagine where television or superhero content would be today.
