    As Lisa Simpson paraphrased Samuel Johnson:
    “Prayer. The last refuge of a scoundrel.”

    Impending doom frequently has that effect. And knowing Calvin,
    Tirebiter is probably right.

    There are no atheists in the trenches.

    Now I lay me down to sleep…… May it snow and may it sleet.

    If there’s a snow day, he’ll forget all about the homework and go out and play in it. Ask me how I know this.

    When I was a kid there was no better feeling than lying in bed, hearing snow sift against the windows, and knowing school would be cancelled. I loved to learn, loved to read, just hated the school I was in. Most of my teachers made Miss Wormwood look sweet and friendly.

    I am guessing you are a Firesign Theatre fan?

    A criticism of trenches, not atheists.

    A religious attack?

    Calvin maybe should have finished his homework quietly instead of waking Dad. He has a short attention span sometimes.

    “Sometimes?” Calvin is the poster child for ADHD!

    Harry Morgan did say it on an episode of MASH, when he played a wacko general (before he came on the show as Colonel Potter). While reviewing the troops, he barked it at Father Mulcahy, whose mild reply was simply, “I’ve heard that, General.” The expression appears to have originated around WWII, though Wikipedia lists its origins as uncertain.

    A timely strip. 6 inches here in VA. God answers prayer, Calvin!
