I haven't really had much to say about the big Mark Waid-gets-fired controversy, because I don't read Fantastic Four. Frankly, I think FF's been stale since Kirby left eons ago and nothing I've seen in the damn near thirty years since have convinced me otherwise. Dirk Deppey provides a neat overview of the whole tempest in a teapot, if you haven't read about it elsewhere and are curious.
Also, I have been silent about the passing of Gregory Peck, mostly because he's never made that great an impression on me. I've seen several movies in which he starred, and I certainly recognize that he was a great actor who appeared in many important films. And now I've commented.
