    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(40) 7/17/2013 Wednesday

    Mr. Am while he beams at the crowd in a warm happy light is talking telepathically with Doleful and Crema. It was when Mr. Am shook the hand of Drexler that he felt something cold, afraid, angry wanting to strike out. He is their mole. Poor fellow, so contorted emotionally. But Mr. Am can help. No one is beyond his help if he is in close proximity. (maybe even people like the TexCom elite like Trask, Walsh and Til if they would just try. But not time.) He can detect the life force of Alley Oop is near, all he has to do is to give subtle cues to him and he will find them lickity split!

    Speaking of, Mr. Oop, he is in a boisterous fashion not too removed from his own personality and is swaggering around using his black wood club to nudge doors and bop them then nodding in approval speaking lowly so as not to be fully understood. But the junior officers were open mouthed at his antics as he continued on, he seems to be needed here and directed them as he walked tutting and saying “bully” occasionally, they didn’t catch the reference, as he went. His feet have started itching, so he knows he is going in the right direction. (His feet never lie about danger.)

    Snelling was in a fix, this guy is just too much to handle, but Commander Til can’t be reached. “Top Secret” work on progress?!? With a security lock down and this apish fellow it is madness. He could use a lie down but that won’t come for many hours. He does his best not to get the fellow rowdy. Looks like he could bench press 400 lbs and crush skulls with his big, hairy, calloused fists. Whatever else they can do to him would be better than one blow from this maniac. So he goes where he wants.

    Yes, Snelling is from the U.K.

    What on Earth is this leading up to anyway? Some kind of statement on Rapid Global Climate Change? Or something entirely different?

    I hope not. Alley Oop has always stayed away from politics. Making a statement on global warming could be very harmful to this strip.

    Is that why we just had a story about King Guzzle and the Moovian Constitution?

    An inconvenient truth, Alley “Gore” Oop!

    I do like the improved art, the three panel format, and the intelligent dialog.

    If there happens to be a statement coming up on Climate Change, I myself would keep on reading the strip with even more interest. There are still too many people denying CC. If the science contradicts their beliefs, they’ll go with their beliefs (which is pretty silly). True scientists will do everything they can to prove their own idea wrong and when they fail they say, “Provisionally speaking, there might be a germ of truth here—so let’s see where this idea takes us.”

    I’ll have to start reading this strip at night, when I want to fall asleep. Talk about making a short story long.

    Alley Oop avoiding politics? Didn’t the last story arc revolve around politics? What with that so-called lawyer, Doowee proposing that Moo dump King Gus, become a democracy, and draw up a constitution? If that was not political I’d like to know what is. Global Climate Change IS a highly charged topic. There are a lot of folks out there who become enraged when the topic is even discussed casually. To discuss that topic seriously may lead to an Egyptian style revolution!

    Man-made global warming is a scam. There IS no “science” behind it.

    I’d heard of the cold summer of 1816, but I didn’t know about the far-reaching effects of it, or just how far they went.
    I actually learned a little something from this strip today.
