San Diego Comic Con Decides to Bully Salt Lake City Comic Con

In the midst of the festivities surrounding the San Diego Comic Con, they decided to bully the folks who run the Salt Lake City Comic Con by sending them a "Cease and Desist Order".This is kinda interesting, considering that cons all over the country use Comic Con in their names.
