    Good morning Annie fans. Will Annie catch a frieght or will the cops catch Annie? Be wealthy and wise, my friends.

    I caught a freight train with a friend from Green River Wyoming to Ogden Utah to get a vw gland nut. No vw parts in Green River. We got the part and drove home.
    Very beautiful ride to Ogden in a new van on top of a car carrier.
    Trip back was colder. No car carrier with open vehicles..

    Annie has been surviving basically on her own for longer
    than I’ve been alive. I never much liked Daddy Warbucks
    for leaving her out there in a world that can and does
    destroy little girls on their own. Her track record says she
    will get through this and triumph over whatever evil she
    runs into. Not so with too many other girls (and boys) out
    there in truly hellish situations.

    Sorry to say it, but I think Annie is being given too much slack as a character with all this running away from justice tale. Any other would be called very nasty names just for that . And it is not as if she could call call daddy Warbucks any second and he would send an army of lawyers or other kind to her rescue.

    Morning, Anniephans!

    Y’all have hit on what, in my opinion, is one of the main reasons the strip was canceled. With all the modern technology, cell phones, the internet, etc., there is no reason why the ward of a millionaire would have to be out on her own. The story was beginning to break any reasonable stretch of the imagination and was creating too much of a challenge to the story writer.

    Here’s the link to the 2006 Annie story, “What Bugs You.”

    Good grief. If she’s just make it to the site of the plane crash, she could explain that she was one of the victims and avoid all this.

    Boca Raton, FL
    FINAL LESSON: Into the Sunset
    And so, as his sidekick, memory fully restored, sets off for points unknown and a new adventure, we also bid farewell to the case of Captain Snafu (The Phantom Commando).
    Having rode back into his forest lair, our aspiring crusader – despite making an embarrassing number of mistakes and critical errors – may fight again another day… or he may find either law enforcement and/or the masters of the spies and saboteurs he dispatched waiting for him with a lot more than a .22 long rifle.
    The main lesson to be learned is to NEVER GO INTO THIS GIG without proper training – learn from the best, which is what we offer here at FCCS. Enrollment for the fall semester is now available at our website…

    Of course, the ward of a millionaire would not be fighting Nazis and gangsters, either throughout her career. I think you’re giving the writers too little credit. And, I hope that, with the centennial of Harold Gray’s creation approaching, that a re-launch of the strip is in the works.

    Very well put, and maybe I am giving the writers too little credit. But, like you, I am certainly looking forward to a relaunch of the strip in the near future. Curtis and Staton are doing an outstanding job in the Dick Tracy crossovers, so we know that the syndicate has not killed off the strip entirely.

    Curtis and Staton HAVE NOT DONE an outstanding job in the Dick Tracy crossovers, or the strip in generall….. crossovers are a gasping grasp for any help or direction in a dead end to their stewardship of the Dick Tracy franchise. They have taken their shot at what could have been an evolutionary step for the strip and missed the target.

    @TXPAScot: Thanks for posting the crimefighter info. I’ve really enjoyed your input to the Phantom Commando story. Be blessed, my friend.

    You have really entertained us with the FCCS handbook! I have loved every ‘chapter’ you’ve issued. Do you write professionally?
    It might not be as fun if you have to make your living that way, but you do it well!
