Amanda Waller Responds to Batman in Green Lantern Viral Campaign

Dr. Amanda Waller
I was contacted recently by Miles, a reader of this site, who shared with me a fun exchange he had with Dr. Amanda Waller via the  mail in form on Newton Astronomers.  You can also visit her blog at Dr. Waller dot net.  I thought the exchange was pretty interesting since this demonstrates that the responses being received by people are not necessarily canned emails even though many of the responses people have received carry the same tone.  Take a read:

To whom it may concern,

I myself am skeptical but my interests have been peeked and would like to see further
information and observations. The Wayne foundation and Wayne Enterprises will be glad to help in anyway we can. You can contact Lucius Fox or myself directly through this email address above and we are in close contact with the Gotham Amateur Astronomy Foundation. Thank you for your time.

Of course I have heard of your company, and thank you for the offer. However I feel that it is unnecessary at the moment. I shall however keep it in mind should circumstances change.

Thank you for your interest,

    Dear Mr Gardner,

    thank you for your input, it's evidence based astronomers like yourself who are the future of America's scientific endeavour. Probably.

    Dr. Waller,

    What's the big deal with this whole telescope business, eh? I was out in football practice with my buddies and lo' and behold we looked up at the sky and noticed something strange. I went to a buddy of mine, drank a couple brews, and decided to look at this thing with a telescope and guess what? There was a bunch of fuzzy red stuff up in space. Now, I'm no rocket scientist, but if people are emailing you to look at this crud, why don't ya just look up for yourself and see the proof there? Proof's in the pudding, no? I mean, you can't depend on people to do crud. You gotta do it yourself. Anyway, either look at it, or not, it's none of my business... but if you end up looking and getting rich thanks to an email from lil' ol me, just remember who opened your eyes, eh?
