They dropped FoxTrot for Opus? I like both strips, but overall I like FoxTrot better.

Regardless, are you telling me none of the 10 dailies they dropped had a Sunday counterpart to axe? Even if you figure each new title evenly replaced the old ones’ Sundays and Dailies, they only brought in 9 replacements… weird.

The new ones are so bad I will not read them.
I hope you will reconsider your choices>
Thank you for allowing me to express my thoughts.

Don’t like Mallard Fillmore–keep political cartoons on the editorial page. Poling fun at someone or at a propsal by distorting the facts is not entertaining..

Mallard Fillmore is a cartoon that belongs on the editorial page. Putting down a person or a proposal when using a biased misuse of facts is not entertainment.

Hello, What has happened to the Daily Commuter crossword puzzle??????????? The Los Angeles puzzle has taken its place and I’m NOT happy about it…..PLEASE reconsider bringing it back or I’ll have no reason to take the paper….My favorite comics have been deleted and now my favorite puzzle. The hard news is available for free on tv and internet.
