So about that whole 'comments of the week' thing ...
Some of the folks who've been hanging around the Ministry of Gossip since the early days might remember a quiet little post about "comments of the week" -- a feature I'd intended to do on a regular basis.
Oops, my bad.
Turns you all are really into speaking your minds -- which is, believe me, fantastic -- but it's also meant that keeping up on individual comments has been more challenging than I'd imagined. There are a lot of 'em!
I can't do justice to the original concept, so instead I'll direct folks to where the action was in the week (or two) prior.
Click onward for the links, and thanks for spending time at the Ministry.
Leslie Gornstein's "Preach It!" post on Adam Lambert and ABC drew a ton of thoughtful comments -- and gets the award for fewest number of posts with profanity (which we don't publish) submitted for my approval. Props to people who were incoming from mjsbigblog -- you have nice manners. Seriously.
People dug Leslie's "Jersey Shore" vocabulary lesson too.
Barbara Walters' list of the "10 Most Fascinating People of 2009" seems to have disappointed a lot of people. The overall consensus: Babs could've done better.
How many ways can MOG readers say, "OMG OMG I looooooooooooove you"? Matt Donnelly's interview with "Harry Potter" actor Tom Felton -- fueled by Twitter-submitted questions from Tom's fans -- might answer that question.
And if anyone wants to see me get whacked around in comments like a cheap piñata with a belly full of gold coins, check out the follow-up on Alexa Ray Joel's trip to the hospital.
Thanks again, everyone!

P.S. Remember -- cuss in a comment and we can't publish it. Dazzle us with your wit and we'll love you forever.
