    Hello, Anniephans. I’m still having trouble with my posts. When I paste the text in the box and click submit, nothing happens.

    A bit preachy today.

    Well, I glad these guys aren’t doing Annie any more. Not only can they not draw the characters correctly, they’re portraying Warbucks complete wrong. Oliver Warbucks never preached. He was one who’d wade in with his fists, instead. Annie was always the one who’d moralize or preach. Today’s strip would make Harold Gray roll over in his grave.

    That’s how it is with war – good people on both sides say these things and believe them too, while the cynics and scoundrels seek their own advantage.

    Yes use the fists, rather like our Empire on the outside uses it weapons first, last and always. Rather like how bullies communicate, with fists.

    While I admit that this speech by Oliver is “Over-the-top”, it is not completely out of character. I have a book containing reprints from July 1935 thru Dec. 1945, and Daddy Warbucks frequently made speeches expounding his views on capitalism, conservative outlooks, etc. Sometimes he would be speaking to Punjab, Asp or some other associate, sometimes he would be expaining his views to Annie, or often he would be depicted just thinking out loud.
    I agree with you that the characters don’t look quite right, at least, not like Harold Gray’s classic work.

    I admit that most people would probably love the speech and cheer at the sentiments therein.

    The “strength is important” sentiment is easily within the tradition of the Warbucks character (viz. the name), but the grandiose way he is speaking here seems more in character with the pompous fool “Count Oliviero” that he was playing in the last adventure. Given that he is wearing his wig here, that seems appropriate!
