CSotD: A Coalition of the Willing

Jul 15, 2019 by Mike Peterson

Matt Wuerker ran this piece several days ago, but it continues not simply to be relevant but to increase in relevance. Never mind Epstein, at least for the moment, though I’d like to see his case sorted out: There is, apparently, an actual affidavit or piece of testimony or something quasi-legal that connects Trump to […]

Bastille Day Sunday Funnies

Jul 14, 2019 by D. D. Degg

  Some Sunday comics of note today, only one noting Bastille Day.     I like the nice Summer day look of Judge Parker but that dark last panel … Evil looms!     Whereas Macanudo’s Summer day in the woods just makes me smile.     More than smile, Buckles and Bound and Gagged […]

CSotD: Finding your way; losing ours

Jul 13, 2019 by Mike Peterson

Stephen Collins on the perils of shopping in a strange supermarket, and thoughts on that topic could be a book, and an interesting one. I had the great good fortune to be a biz writer in a small city when a fourth grocery chain came in, and they were not only willing to talk to […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies w/ a side order of truth

Jul 12, 2019 by Mike Peterson

The new Nancy is hardly the only strip featuring a rude, self-absorbed main character, but, at least so far, it goes beyond simply laughing at her rudeness. Confucius said, “In vain have I looked for a single man capable of seeing his own faults and bringing the charge home against himself,” and expanding the search […]

CSotD: Privacy and Exposure

Jul 11, 2019 by Mike Peterson

Jimmy Margulies comments on the feds having tapped into state licensing bureaus to get all our biometric information. I’m not worried about being deported, because they can force you out of your country without making you move an inch. I feel like the guide in the old joke: “We’re not lost; we’re right here. The […]

Daily Comics in B&W!!?? Paper Apologizes

Jul 10, 2019 by D. D. Degg

  A sure sign of the Apocalypse. The Orlando Sentinel published black-and-white comics Wednesday morning. I wish I had a simple explanation for why our comics appeared in black and white today. The simple answer is it was a mistake. The complicated one that that the page was set “as full color enhanced black, meaning […]
