Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)105,062The HISTORY® original series Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar’s brother Rollo (Clive Standen), a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; of Earl Haraldson’s wife Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig), a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and of the monk Athelstan (George Blagden), whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society. As ambition and innovation rattle a civilization, these characters will be put to the test—and their way of life will never be the same again.Vikings was created and written by Michael Hirst (Elizabeth, The Tudors).Vikings, HISTORY's first scripted series, premieres Sunday 3.3.13 at 10/9c.http://history.com/vikingsAdd the +Vikings Circle Page to your TV Show circles for show updates and...Join the Vikings G+ Community to discuss the show and each episode!https://plus.google.com/communities/114114270073600513051#Vikings  Vikings [Series Premiere]2013-03-04 04:00:0080G+

Feel free to not read it or completely disagree with my opinions (because I think this is still a free country), but living less than 15 miles away from what feels like an unconstitutional police state for the past 11 nights is terrifying and I feel like a summary needs to be shared for those who may not be paying as much attention.

This morning I'm back in the office, after a ruptured water line closed down the office yesterday. The building has two wings, with a knucke in the middle so it's V shaped. The first floor of my wing was the one that flooded, so I had to go in through the middle and go up a couple of flights of stairs then go to my wing.

I'm here, and rhe water is working so I have my coffee. And today we're supposed to have an ice cream social. I hope it's not cancelled.

How's your day?

Sam lives less than 15 miles from Ferguson. Here are some of his observations.

Prepare for a long rant about the happenings in Ferguson, MO. Feel free to not read it or completely disagree with my opinions (because I think this is still a free country), but living less than 15 miles away from what feels like an unconstitutional police state for the past 11 nights is terrifying and I feel like a summary needs to be shared for those who may not be paying as much attention. The way the police and government has handled, and will continue to handle the situation, has only lit flames under protesters and spiraled the whole city out of control. Let me preface this email with this: I am not making any judgement on the innocence/guilt of police officer Darren Wilson, although the facts continue to point towards "ample evidence" for his arrest. I am not focusing on race in this discussion, even though things have been historically rough in North STL for minorities (which has only fueled this protest). I am not saying that all the protesters are peaceful or all of the police officers are abusing their power (I would say it is about 90% good and 10% bad on both sides of the struggle). What I do want to bring to light is the major problems of civil rights violations and the gross police militarization that is taking place within our country. I have honestly never been this disgusted with what occurs within our country.

---

Saturday afternoon, Michael Brown was shot and killed by police officers. Protesters gathered around the scene chanting things like "hands up, don't shoot", "no justice, no peace", "killer cops have got to go", and "we are Michael Brown!" More than 100 officers showed on the scene in case things got out of hand armed with shotguns and dogs. Keep in mind that this is for a peaceful protest of no more than a thousand people in a town of 21k (yes, on the suburbs of a metropolitan area) before anything had "gotten out of hand". Look at protests through history and you don't see that. Heck, I see protests in Times Square for Ferguson where thousands of protesters blocked the streets and there were just a handful of cops spread throughout without any riot gear at all. Also, I have no idea who thought an overwhelming police presence (predominantly white) would calm down a crowd of people (predominantly black) angry over what they felt was the murder of a young, unarmed boy. News flash: they are angry at oppression and police aggression.

Sunday (after a night of peaceful protests), they held a prayer vigil for the boy..lo and behold, the excessive police presence was there as well. At a prayer vigil; not a protest. This was one of the worst nights (until recently): protests lead to rioting, which lead to looting, and the burning of a Quick Trip convenience store. People wanted answers and they wanted the police to leave them alone. Sadly, this only tightened the governments grip (understandably, I suppose). The police officers name was no longer going to be released for his safety and he was placed on paid leave.

Monday-Wednesday was when things really began to get scary. The county police now looked and acted like the military on foreign soil. Armored vehicles were all over the streets..tear gas, smoke bombs, and stun grenades were thrown every night..rubber and wooden pellets were shot at protesters..and rifles were constantly trained on peaceful protesters while they waited for violence to break out. Constitutional rights began to be violated when reporters were arrested for reporting from within a McDonald's; even a STL Alderman who has been working to calm protesters was arrested and two state Senators have been hit with tear gas. Police no longer appeared like police officers and weren't even dressed in anti-riot gear, they looked like military on our soil.

Warning: this is my longest personal opinion and side rant. I'm sorry, but the picture attached from Ferguson _disgusts__ me. I can't think of a single reason why our police (meant to "protect and serve" the citizens) would ever need to be dressed in camo, with gas masks, and aiming rifles at civilians on our soil. And there is definitely no excuse for backing a single person with their hands up down a sidewalk with the force of 10 militarized officers. Not to mention there are pictures of this all over Twitter from every night and this is before the National Guard was deployed (this is city and county police departments). This all is occurring because of a 90's program: Department of Defense 1033. It was created to transfer military weapons to state/local law enforcement to fight the "war on drugs". After 9/11, the program grew to fight terrorism within our borders. Last year, half a billion dollars of military weapons were passed to police officers that are now being used to intimidate peaceful protesters instead of stopping drugs and terrorism. Keep in mind, this is a suburb of 21k people. __Can you imagine armored vehicles, lines of SWAT, rifles trained from rooftops, and tear gas being thrown in your city?__ There is no excuse here, side rant over._

Finally on Thursday, people realized that maybe the presence of a militarized police was only instigating protesters. Pres. Obama, Gov. Nixon, and Police Chief Jackson all spoke out against the use of tear gas and the arrest of peaceful protests and reporters. (Riddle me this, if everyone up the chain of command disapproved of the actions of police in Ferguson, who was giving the commands? Either the government blatantly lied all the way up or _the military-grade weapons made the police officers feel power-hungry__ and act on their own.)_ Nixon ordered the demilitarization of the police, the removal of county/local police, and had law/order enforced by State Highway Patrol that night. They were not equipped with any riot gear and were ordered to stay in staging areas. Guess what? It worked! The one peaceful night in the past 10 days was that Thursday..the scene was described as a block party of protests. Why wasn't this done earlier? Why was there a crackdown before anyone went violent?

Friday, people started to get answers. The name of the shooter, Darren Wilson, was released. However, with good news comes bad news. The police department released a video (after the Department of Justice asked them not to) of Michael Brown stealing cigarettes from a convenience store just before the shooting, even though the shooter did not know Brown was involved in the robbery and pulled him over for jaywalking. It is crystal clear that this was leaked to taint public opinion, and I'm sure it is working. Sadly, the unprofessional releases of information got the crowd riled up again and there was looting in the streets that night. Police followed orders and stayed in the background and people from the community warded off the few violent protesters (look, the community doesn't like the violence and handled it on it's own!) and things settled down early in the morning.

With bad actions, come grave consequences. Saturday night, the police was re-militarized and a midnight curfew was enforced; however, "tear gas would not be used to enforce the curfew." At around 11 that night, police started ordering crowds to disperse since they were "unlawfully assembling" and curfew was approaching. The crowd had another hour and was not happy, so water bottles were thrown and the tear gas came out (who follows orders anyways, we have rifles and armored vehicles). Once again, it was a war zone in Ferguson.

The same thing happened Sunday, but it seemed as though (after police overreaction on Saturday) the violent protesters were more on edge and Molotov cocktails started the feeding frenzy of police lockdown.

Monday once again had Pres. Obama and Gov. Nixon condemning the arrests of peaceful protesters and the press. However, this time Gov. Nixon ramped up the police presence by calling in the National Guard (while removing the curfew). 8 people (including a 90yr old Holocaust victim) were arrested downtown for failure to disperse as a peaceful crowd gathered in front of the Governor's downtown office demanding the removal of the National Guard. A handful of people (including a reporter) were arrested in Ferguson during the middle of the day..and the Police Chief said that there would be no "static protesting" in Ferguson. In other words, not only could you not march in the streets, but you could not stop for more than 5 seconds and protest on a public sidewalk. If you wanted to stop and congregate, there was designated area where you could go (the Constitutional Zone). There was also one designated area that the media has been confined to the past few nights (when attempting to leave, a spotlight and rifle gets pointed at them and they are threatened to return). More civil rights violations, more tension, and everyone was bracing for a tense night in Ferguson, MO.

---

Now I can go into a little more detail (I know, bear with me) on why Ferguson is uneasy over the police presence, since I watched live streams from multiple reporters Monday am Tuesday starting at 9pm. Monday started with 2 hours of extreme tensions during very peaceful protests (I heard two water bottles being thrown and one person stole/marched with a street sign). The main road was closed down, and on either end of the ~5 block stretch there were ~250 police (local, militarized county, highway patrol in riot gear, and National Guard) barricading the streets staring at protesters with rifles and barking threats of arrest. All of a sudden, just after 11p, all hell broke loose and Ferguson turned into a terrifying war zone (not the least bit of an exaggeration).

How did this happen so quick? The police spent 2 hours instigating a peaceful crowd. Don't get me wrong..minutes before things exploded, people were putting cones in the street; seconds before things exploded, you heard a live gunfire from a protester. So the war zone was directly created by a few rowdy protesters and one person shooting their pistol. But after watching this thing for two hours, I cannot picture how this would've happened if the police were not there (in the fashion they were). Also, since when does two bullets being fired justify an entire attack on a city?

That 2 hours of "instigation" I referred to went like this: a block full of peaceful (100% peaceful) protesters marching in the streets and standing in the sidewalks. A blockade of militarized police (4 rows deep) staring down at protesters with rifles, gas masks, spotlights, and armored vehicles. The police would come on the loud speaker every 30 seconds and say something like "continue moving, or your may be subject to arrest", "the parking lot is off limits, you are subject to arrest", or "get off of the streets, or you may be arrested or have other tactical measures taken on you" (I'm sorry, did we forget about our rights here in Ferguson?). If people got too close, they used an LRAD or drove an armored truck through the crowd. Luckily, a handful of protesters helped co-operate with the unconstitutional commands and rallied crowds off of the streets. As the night went on, and the constant threats of arrest came out of a military line of police (for literally 2 non-stop hours), people just had enough. There were at least five times before 11pm that I thought all shit was going to hit the fan, and somehow it managed not to.

But when it did, it was legitimately scary. Instantly after gunshots were heard, every police officer took action at once. Within seconds the entire city was covered in smoke and tear gas, gunshots were heard, rubber pellets were being shot at and everyone was running and screaming. After things calmed down, the two lines of police began converging and ordering everyone to disperse. Citizens came up to the reporters fearful and saying they are trapped: you get to the end of the street and 200 cops tell you to go the other way with rifles pointed at you, you run away and run into another line of 200 cops who are ordering everyone to disperse with armored trucks to arrest you..there is too much noise and confusion to communicate the fact that people could not leave. I watched the live stream where the reporters literally had to show media credential to get passed the police lines. "Everyone must disperse, show your media credentials to get past us." How can the non-media follow your orders? Why is there a difference between media and civilians (freedom of speech should be the same as freedom of press)?

My point was only proven Tuesday night. Things somehow managed to stay peaceful (after another fatal police shooting occurred just miles away) and the whole atmosphere felt different. What felt different about it? The police presence. The crowd was the same..groups of people standing around, some marching, some chanting, and occasionally hands were in the air. I did not see two barricades of hundreds of officers. I did not see rifles constantly aimed at civilians. I did not hear threats of arrest or LRADs. Every now and then a large line of police would form and break up a group because they are worried about congregations giving cover to violent protesters. This would make everyone on edge, but peacekeepers would continue to settle their community. Only after a couple hours of this cat and mouse (around midnight), did things begin to get "out of hand". Two water bottles were thrown and someone stole a phone. The crowd was riled up and the police were taking over.

They ordered people to disperse a few times and then moved in and arrested trouble makers (using pepper spray if needed)..continuing to push the crowd away. Within half an hour the streets were cleared and a few protesters remained in their Constitutional Zone. While this is a great success for the city of Ferguson, I still want this to emphasize how grossly unnecessary the police response to Ferguson has been. And for everyone to realize that our civil rights are being squashed in Ferguson..two water bottles are thrown and a whole city has to voice their mind from a single parking lot with the National Guard? No! 

---

Okay, rant over. There are a lot of tidbits of violent protesters and police harassment that I have left out, because it doesn't represent the whole. All of this information has been gathered from the past week and a half from eyewitnesses (mostly on twitter and live streams). Keep in mind police accountability, freedom of speech/press, and police militarization programs like DoD 1033 when you go to vote in 2016! Here's hoping for continued peace in Ferguson and change to come out of Michael Brown's life. Please share and participate in friendly debate :)___Sam lives less than 15 miles from Ferguson.

#PublicTransitAdventures

My transit route is a bus, two trains and another bus. On my way home yesterday, I made the train with a few seconds to spare, so I was quite proud of myself. Foolish pride. I got to the Metro station and waited for my bus home. And waited, and waited...

Finally a Metro cop stopped at the bus stop and told us that our late bus would not be coming because it had been hit by a car. By this time the next bus was about 15 minutes away. The crowd of people, two busloads worth by this time, was not happy.

The bus came, we all jammed aboard, and off we went. At the front of the bus was a blind woman with her seeing-eye dog, and across from her was an Asian man with a large baby carriage. They effectively, if unintentionally, blocked the aisle.

Finally a Metro cop stopped at the bus stop and told us that our late bus would not be coming because it had been hit by a car. By this time the next bus was about 15 minutes away. The crowd of people, two busloads worth by this time, was not happy.

The bus came, we all jammed aboard, and off we went. At the front of the bus was a blind woman with her seeing-eye dog, and across from her was an Asian man with a large baby carriage. They effectively, if unintentionally, blocked the aisle.

When the driver stopped to pick up a passenger, he told the man to fold up the baby carriage and hold the baby. The man didn't speak English. After a couple of minutes another Asian man came up from the back of the bus and translated the request, the stroller was folded, and we were on our way again.

I got home 40 minutes late.

Surely this morning would be better, right? The trip was fine. I got off the bus at my office stop and noticed that there were hoses coming out of the entrance, ad a strong odor of sewage. I looked at my phone, and there was a voicemail about working from home today because of a pipe rupture that shut down the building.

So I took the bus/train/train/bus home, and signed into work from home.

I wonder if tomorrow will be another WFH day? I'll ask the boss before I sign off today, that's for sure.

The next morning they were all dressed and standing by their freshly made beds when Senior Master Sergeant Kilgore came in.

"Obviously some of you are familiar with the military," Kilgore said.  "Let's try this, then.  Anchors, go out that door and to Building 37, classroom A."  He pointed to the back of the barracks.  "Shifters, follow me."  The sergeant took the Shifters out the front door as Colt and the other Anchors went out the back."

As they walked toward the building with the 37 over the top of the front door, Colt noticed that most of the other candidates were looking at him.  "Mmm, I'd ask you to march, but you know, I was never in the military.  Or in band."

#SaturdayScenes  

From my unpublished novel Policing Reality.

Chapter 5 - Real Learning

The next morning they were all dressed and standing by their freshly made beds when Senior Master Sergeant Kilgore came in.

"Obviously some of you are familiar with the military," Kilgore said.  "Let's try this, then.  Anchors, go out that door and to Building 37, classroom A."  He pointed to the back of the barracks.  "Shifters, follow me."  The sergeant took the Shifters out the front door as Colt and the other Anchors went out the back."

As they walked toward the building with the 37 over the top of the front door, Colt noticed that most of the other candidates were looking at him.  "Mmm, I'd ask you to march, but you know, I was never in the military.  Or in band."

A few of the group laughed. They made their way into the building and found the classroom.  It looked like a high school classroom, with a dozen desks and an entire wall of viewscreen at the front.  Colt shut the door behind them and they all took a seat, which left three seats empty.  Nine Anchors, then.

The door opened and an older lady with white hair, wearing a non-descript dress, came inside.  "I'm Mrs. Metzler.  I'll be your instructor for Anchor 101.  Here, catch." She threw a tennis ball she'd been holding, and Colt snagged it.

He looked at the ball.  It was almost glowing, irridescent or something. It seems like it wanted to flicker, and he couldn't quite lock down what color it was.

"Mr. Darden, what can you tell me about that ball?" she asked him.
"It's... wrong," he said.  "Just wrong."  He could feel the strangeness in it. But he knew, somehow, that this was a ball from his reality, however it looked.  

It shouldn't look like this.  Down deep -- there, just there -- it looked like any other tennis ball, with colors that didn't spin and threaten to spill out into the air.  He felt the true image of it, and reached out to it, and hung on. He felt the strangeness struggle, then with a snap the tennis ball was a normal, boring white.

He shook his head at the wave of dizziness, then looked at the teacher.

"Very good, Candidate Darden," she said.  She put her medium canvas bag on the teacher's desk. "The rest of you, come on up, and get your own tennis ball."

Half an hour later, two people had left, frustrated.  The teacher pulled off the velcroed gold circles from their jumpsuits as they left. The rest of the students had white tennis balls, except for one.  

One student was left.  The young red-headed man was staring at the ball.  You could see the ball start to shift towards white, then go back to its insane color kaleidoscope. Colt saw the sweat on his forehead. He looked at the jumpsuit.  Peeples.

"You can do it, Peeples," Colt said.

"August," Peeples said.

"You can do it, August. Feel it in your mind.  You feel the wrong, don't you?"

"I do feel it, but I can't get hold of what it really is."

"It's behind the wrongness, buried deep.  You can find it.  Reach out!"

August squinted hard, concentration painting his face, and suddenly the ball shifted to white. He smiled, and then his eyes began to roll up.

"August!" Colt said, and grabbed his arm. August's head snapped up, and he let out a sigh of relief.

"Candidate Darden, be seated, please," Mrs. Metzler said, and waited for him to sit down.  "Candidates, that was your first test.  Those tennis balls were breach-changed about a week ago.  The longer they stay in their breach-changed state, the harder it is to make them revert. Well done."

"Mrs. Metzler?" August asked, raising his hand.

"Yes, Candidate Peeples?"

"What happened to the other two candidates, the ones who couldn't make the ball change?"

"They're not candidates, not any longer. Any more questions, class?"

There were none. "You're on break. The breakroom is on the second floor, and there are water fountains by the restrooms.  Be back here in 15 minutes."

"Mrs. Metzler?" 

"Yes, Candidate Darden?"

"We don't have phones. Or tablets. Or anything with the time on it."

"That's right, you don't."  She paused for a little while, then smiled.

 "Please open your desks." Colt lifted up the top of his desk as his classmates did the same, and inside he saw a watch and a tablet with a ten inch screen."

"The watch goes on your non-dominant hand," the teacher said. You'll notice on you jumpsuit that there's a zipper for a pocket below your right chest.  That's where your tablet goes.  The watch and the tablet are connected. It's all voice-actuated. There are a few porn and gambling filters, but otherwise you have your internet back.  We'll see everything that you see, so use it wisely.  Be back in 15 minutes."

As he was on his way out, Mrs. Metzler motioned to him, and waited until the other students had gone. "I said those balls had been breach-changed for a week.  They were, except for yours.  Yours was a month.  Now, go on."

In the breakroom, his watch vibrated, and the saw the name 'Baine' flashing on the screen. He touched the watch.

"Hey, Darden," came the voice from the watch, "finish your first class yet?"

"Sure did," Colt said. "Hey, didn't they say something to you about unauthorized use?  I didn't even know you could use the watch to make calls."

"If they didn't want us to use them, they wouldn't have given them to us," Baine said. "So what was your first test?"

"We had to change a tennis ball back to its original color."

"Boring.  We had to breath water."

"Breath water?  No way!"

"It was easy for the merman, I figure it was easy for us. We lost one, though, she almost drowned."

"Not Eris!"

"You mean Candidate Williams? No, she's fine. She sends you kisses."

Colt heard Eris telling Baine to shut up in the background.

"Back to class time, Anchor boy?" Baine said. 

"I think --" 

"End call," Baine said, and the watch screen went back to the time. He's have to hurry or he'd be late.

The class was dark and the screen at the front was white with the start of their next lesson.

"Okay, you've heard of breaches, obviously. We've worked hard to classify them, as best we can. Let's cover these, from least dangerous to most dangerous."

"Level Four is transformation. People, buildings, animals, plants, generally one thing, although one thing is a loose generalization.  People have turned into grey aliens, zombies, werewolves, about anything you can think of. There are superheroes, and supervillains.  Horses have turned into centaurs, bulls into minotaurs, cows have become intelligent, and a lot more. Things that are alive are much harder to revert than inanimate objects, like tennis balls.  Although when inanimate objects become animate they're also harder to restore. 

"What can Anchors do?  They can change things back to what they were before. Although some people think that not everything and everybody should be changed back. 

"Level Three is an open connection to another reality.  This is like the one in England that opens to the Faery Kingdom. We've found that Anchors are immune to magic and super-science wielded by beings from other realities, both in our reality and in their reality."

"Their reality?" August asked.

"Hold your questions until I'm finished, please, candidates," the teacher replied.

"Level Two, an area from another reality here inside our reality. Some people think our reality was converted and the people inside changed to the beings in the new reality.  Some people think our reality and the people there were destroyed. Same as for a Level Three, Anchors are not affected by the fantastic powers of the other reality. Not to mention the temperature, atmosphere, and gravity."

Colt wondered how they found all of this out.  He was glad that he wasn't one of the pioneers.

"Lastly, and worsely, are Level One breaches.  These are breaches that start out like a Level Two breach, and continue to slowly spread.  I've head that the Land of Oz, what used to be Australia, started out as a Level Two Breach."

"What can we do as Anchors to stop the spread?" Colt said.

"Nothing, unfortunately. Only Shifters can stop a Level One. Oh, and the Good Witch Glenda, but she never leaves Oz."

There were more classes, and then physical training, including a two mile run.  Colt was exhausted, and after his shower he went to bed and slept well.

The next day the entire group was bussed out to what looked like a giant sandbox, about 20 feet by 100 feet, surrounded, marked by orange pylons. The anchor and shifter candidates formed up in a loose formation.

A Hummer pulled up and Chief Johnston got out.  "At ease.  You're probably wondering why I brought you out here." He reached into an open trough shaped box on the ground and pulled out a wooden stick, about two inches thick and three feet long.

"Take this, Candidate Darden," Chief Johnston said, and Colt did. "Now walk into the middle of the sandbox."

He felt stupid, but he walked in, then stood about in the middle and shrugged his shoulders.

"Now, throw the stick about ten feet from yourself.  Keep it in the sandbox," the Chief directed.  Colt did so, watching it flip end over end and flop down in the sand.

"Okay, get the stick, and bring it here and put it back in the box," the Chief said. Colt did so. He wondered what was so special about this sandbox.

"So what was that all about, you're thinking," Chief Johnston said. His voice carried to all of the students. "Let me show you.  Senior?"

Senior Master Sergeant Kilgore came up with a ten foot wooden pole and swept about three feet of the end through the air above the sand. The end of the pole burst into flame and the ashen remnants dropped onto the sand.  Another airman with a fire extinguisher came and sprayed the remains of the pole.

"The air in there is about one thousand degrees, Candidates," Chief Johnston said.

"Okay, Anchor Candidates. Let's let one of the Shifters try.  Candidate Baine?"

Baine shrugged, and walked up to the sandbox.  He turned around to look at Colt, and winked. Then he stepped across the line.  Colt didn't know what would happen. But Baine didn't burst into flame.  As he crossed the line, he changed. What had been Baine was now a man-sized purple dragon, who let out a moderate roar and breathed a jet of flame straight up, ten feet into the air.

"Enough, Candidate Baine," the Chief said, and the dragon stepped out, changing to Baine as he crossed the line.

"Excellent.  Now you know what Shifters and Anchors can do. Almost any breech can be handled by a Shifter or an Anchor, but sometimes it takes both.  That's why you're here, to learn how to use your abilities and how to work together."

The four weeks flew by, with physical conditioning, firearms training, tactics, and constant honing of their abilities.  When the class finished, six Shifters and five Anchors graduated.  They were all assigned to the Oklahoma City Reality Police station. Everyone's pay had increased, and Colt was able to buy a bigger house.  For a while, things were going better at home.  And then, they weren't.  ___

Can a generic term like 'Comic Con' (short for Comic Book Convention) be trademarke?

SDCC AKA San Diego Comic Con (aka probably the most widely-known comic con in the world) apparently feels insecure.

In a legal move to prove who has the biggest wang, SDCC is suing SLCC (Salt Lake Comic Con) because the San Diego boys apparently believe Comic Con is their exclusive domain.

Not sure what their chances are of achieving victory in the courtroom since Comic Con is simply short for Comic Convention so it will be interesting to see how this goes.___Can a generic term like 'Comic Con' (short for Comic Book Convention) be trademarke?

"But I guess my larger point is that if you know somebody who might be at risk but you've been denying it because they're always smiling and joking around, for the love of God, wake the fuck up. They don't know how to ask for help because they don't know how to relate, because when you've lived behind that wall long enough, you completely lose the ability."
