This week's comment of the week was inspired by the threat of a Scrabble rules change. While we would've been more impressed if commenter Eric Cantona had come up with a proper noun that actually DID fulfill the following criteria, the starry-eyed Scrabble idealism he displays in even dreaming of such a word can only be met with a gold star of its own.
Congratulations, Eric! We hope you enjoy this very special
I read somewhere that the Mercury has Portland's "smartest and snarkiest commenters"—you've got a week to prove it.
