The Monday Briefing -- Hello, good morning and welcome to your Monday Briefing here at the ADD Blog.

Over the weekend I watched last week's episode of Boston Legal, which runs hot and cold quality-wise, usually in proportion to how many scenes James Spader and William Shatner get together. But this was a good outing, combining Shatner's Denny Crane character's hilarious love of right-wing causes with Spader's electric relationship with Murphy Brown. Very good stuff all around, the best line being when Shatner goes on a pro-active media campaign to get a very guilty murderer off by claiming he was defending his rights as an AMERICAN HOMEOWNER. Pointing at a young attorney, Shatner blusters:

"You, you're young, you know all about websites. Start up one of those blobs."

Well, I thought it was funny.

Speaking of media campaigns, head over to Christopher Butcher's blob -- erm, blog, for an amusing look at how reporters often misquote the people they interview, in this case Butcher in regard to upcoming movie adaptations of a couple of comic book properties. Best part: Butcher getting "inned."

Finally, here's me bitching about the term "mainstream comics" over at The Comics Reporter. Also, the same site has a new interview with the amazingly talented C. Tyler. If you haven't read Late Bloomer yet, you're missing out.

Have a great Monday.
