    Have you ever been to a major comic con? People get nasty over seats and spots in line and stuff like that. I'm surprised this hasn't happened before.

    They really need to start issuing passes for the various panels to control the 'homesteaders' and massive lines.
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    They would have to cut down on the number of the high-priced Hollywood panels all the non-comic fans go to see. Which means that all of a sudden they aren't selling out all 125,000 tickets.

    Can't have that.

    I have to be honest and say that was my first thought, too.

    After reading more of the article that was one of the panels I was going to attend. I stayed home today... seeing the lines for panels yesterday turned me off of even attempting them.

    I saw a small child nearly get trampled and lost in the crowd. People just pushed the family sideways. I was walking around being polite and frackers were just shoving people around. If attendees wanna mosh, next year I'll bring my mosh attitude.

    Penetrating wounds to the face are bad. Over a seat?

    A stabbing at Comic-Con! Good Lord!

    And it was an "injury to the eye" incident... what would Wertham say!

    Probably not what you would think, considering that in his later life he turned his back on his earlier theories regarding comics and became much more sympathetic to them and their readers, even appearing at a number of comic conventions.

    What's all the fuss I hear about a stubbing? Why aren't people more protective of their toes? We can't all be everyone elses' podiatrists! Next thing you know, they'll want a baked potato with sour cream!

    What's that?

    Ohhhh. Well, that's different then.

    Nevermind.

    Oh, not good. Not good at all.

    I understand CCI wanting to cater to both the comic fans and the Hollywood fans, but if stuff like this is starting to happen, it's not a good sign.

    Brace yourself, by the time the sun rises over San Diego tomorrow, you will hear cries for the end of Comic-Con in San Diego at least.
