Our story: Politician attacks Neil Gaiman as a 'pencil-necked little weasel'

Your best comment: The last time I checked an agreement to pay someone for a service is called a contract. "pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota" is called slander or libel unless prefaced by an "in my opinion" and can be subject to a lawsuit. Then Mr. Gaiman would have a LOT of money from the state with which to donate to worthy causes instead of donate to politician's pockets. — Chris Arthur

Our story: Rumor of the day: Original Terminator cast to return in new film

Also, the phrase "a hero/man/warrior etc. Will Rise" is now so overused that it's gone beyond cliche and is now merely humorous and distracting. — Bizarro7

Our story: New Green Lantern trailer gives first glimpse of the Guardians
