CSotD: If you go right, you’ll be left

Jul 8, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Today’s headline is from an old joke, one that struck me as funny at an age when I wasn’t quite old enough for more sophisticated wordplay: Woman: Where is the platform for the 8 o’clock train? Attendant: If you go left, you’ll be right. Woman: Don’t be impertinent! Attendant: All right. If you go right, […]

CSotD: Minding Our P’s and Q’s

Jul 6, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Kal Kallaugher makes the best use I’ve seen of the two lawyers who freaked out (again?) because people were marching up the private road next to their property en route to the mayor’s house. Which long sentence I employ because of all the people who have spoken up to defend the couple, misrepresenting the nature […]

CSotD: Post-holiday clean-up

Jul 5, 2020 by Mike Peterson

I was going to avoid politics today, but I’m not sure this Candorville counts as politics so much as sociology. Yesterday’s social media postings were full of white folks being shocked and righteously indignant that the original Independence Day didn’t free anyone but them. It reminded me of my oft-told story of coming away from […]

CSotD: Sunday, July 4, 1920

Jul 4, 2020 by Mike Peterson

A century ago, July 4 fell on a Sunday, which provides some long-form comics. Oddly enough, it provides only a limited amount of holiday hoopla, and I didn’t find a lot of Independence Day graphics to brighten up the place. Instead, Page Ones were covering the Democratic Convention, which, as this Boston Globe Extra explains, […]
