Hi all (especially Rick at SPLASH)!

In case you haven't heard, Archie Comics is fighting David Sams for creating a web site in honor of his 2-year-old
daughter using the Domain Name "veronica.org"! Story at...

Justin, yes, someone sent me the url and I'm going to run with it (Monday I think). Any idea for a SPLASH headline?

Gee, guess the folks at Archie Comics totally missed the existence of the Veronica and Jughead search engines. [img]/resources/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

How about simply...

Archie vs. Veronica, but not in Riverdale!

or

Archie Puts the Squeeze on a Different Veronica!

I'm not sure we'll have the WFC New Room revamped in time to report this to the comic book community in a timely manner, so it's up to you!! "Go... on... without me..."

How about: "JUGHEADS AT ARCHIE COMICS SUE 2-YEAR OLD" or is that too subtle???
