Submission + - Mayor of San Diego Hates Comicon Attendees (

Lisa Fary writes: "As we all know, 2007's Comicon International in San Diego ended this past weekend. Comicon is probably San Diego's largest, 4-day revenue generator, but that didn't stop the Mayor of San Diego, Jerry Sanders, from stating "We've put up the superheroes and now we're on to the people with actual talent." on the Cantore in the Morning show on 91X, the Monday morning AFTER the convention ended (presumably, when he thought that any of those pesky comics and sci-fi geeks were safely out of earshot). It's actually a pretty crappy thing to say about any group that brings such large amounts of hotel, restaurant, parking, transportation and retail revenue in to the city Can you imagine if something similar were said regarding almost any other group?"

Journal Journal: Firehose Interaction: Missing One Thing 2

It would be nice if a firehose submission would automatically minimize after a vote is placed.

Hopefully this shows up in the firehose. But, it is not meant to be a story!
I like the new feel, its just missing that one little touch.

I tend to expand a submission, read the content, place my vote, then minimize the submission before moving on to the next one.
