    Okay, I have to finally ask.

    "Nation Of Islam"? Maybe someone can clear this up for me: Why were those incredibly color-coordinated individuals all carrying "Dianetics" pamphlets? Perhaps I should have dropped in on their convention to take a look around as they did ours. I'll bet the admission fee wasn't nearly as high. Or was it... ?

    Mike: ummm, I didn't see anybody with Dianetics pamphlets, just folks walking around with with copies of The Final Call (the Nation's newspaper).....

    Mark: Blago's presence at Comicon was less a crossover moment and more a bold fulfillment of End Times prophecy.....

    Blago's appearance there was part of his PR campaign that he's been waging for a year or so at least to spread his name as far and wide as possible while also bringing in a little bit of money so he can afford more lawyers for the appeal.

    The groan after the announcement came over the speakers on Friday was priceless, though.
