    I don’t like Striesand and her meddling in politics
    but her LP “Guilty” is my second favourite after A side of “Midnight express”

    Ok, aside from the fact that nobody wants to hear Hulk Hogan murder the Streisand songbook…I think I’m missing a cultural marker here.

    I seem to recall from their advertising that “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “The Hunger Games” both had brave female archers…
    but I don’t remember seeing that amazing red hair.

    Having read neither book and seen neither film (hangs head in disgrace)
    I don’t know whether I’m even on the right track…
    but it isn’t Barbra!

    And the ticket seller seems to be the one who’s outdoors!

    My head hurts….

    The gag is that you would have to be brave to hear this particular concert.

    No worse than you meddling by bringing in politics to a comic for no reason.

    I recognize the Brave character, but…the lady in the stenographer’s chair looks like she is outside with the bricks and the posters, but is she supposed to be working in the box office? And I agree you would have to be brave to listen to that, but are Hulk Hogan and Steisand just picked because they are randomly funny, or is there another reference there?

    I never saw the movie “Brave” but I think the girl in it looks a lot like Jane of “Jane and the Dragon” fame. (I have young nieces and nephews is the ONLY reason I know about “Jane and the Dragon.” No, really…….) As for “meddling” in politics: in a democracy there should be NO difference between elected officials and the voting public in terms of who has a “right” to discuss politics. The elected officials are theoretically public servants, after all. They can propose bills, vote on them, and so forth, but when voters ask questions at town hall meetings, volunteer for campaigns, contribute to campaigns, publicly endorse candidates or causes, etc. they are by no means “meddling” in politics, they are doing what citizens of a democracy should do, being involved in their own government.

    I can hardly wait for that movie to come to cable next year so I
    add it to my DVD collection.

    It depends. If you vote at your official polling place, no. At a concert or on a comic strip website, probably yes. (Doonesbury, Mallard Fillmore, and Prickly City being exceptions, naturally.)

    So many questions – I have no answers.

    afficionado: She is a citizen, so it is not meddling – it is performing a civic duty that befalls all of us in whatever country we are in. That meddling (and a few aircraft carriers removing the need) is probably what kept the US from invading Malta. Back in the early 1940s, you showed the strategic value and got that thingie on you flag for it.

    i like actors to act and singers to sing
    spewing politics
    getting drunk and disorderly etc is nearly a must today
