    OK, so…

    Maybe the next story arc will begin around mid-August?

    And yeah, Tracy does a mighty fine impersonation of terrified worm-like coward.

    Must be all those acting classes he took at Naperville City College in is youth.

    It’s “YOURS”, not “YOUR’S”! And you call yourselves professional journalis… Oh, never mind.

    Tracy takes a break at “Police Hdqtrs” before going home to see what Tess and Bonnie Braids have in store for him to help him relax…

    Why did Liz(z) have the letter “S” tattooed in her ear?

    Maybe it’s a worm…

    No, Dick, they wouldn’t have needed to do a convincing job of acting if they had been the ones getting shot at – because they are cops. They would have drawn their guns and arrested the criminal, or if necessary shot him. That’s what cops do.

    Flight Suit, you’re on the leading edge of technology… what in the wide world of sports is that device on the counter behind Liz in panel 2?

    In all fairness to Tracy, yf you were unarmed and someone with a gun was trying to kill you, what would you do? Try to face him down? Take him on bare-handed? No!! You woukd run just like anybody that didn/t have death-wish.

    Man, this entire storyline’s set a new low for the strip. Tracy acting like a coward, being saved by accident, villains with questionable at best motives…

    I actively miss the nudists. At least THEY were memorable.

    VistaBill, it looks to me like one of those cheap printers that cost less than the ink cartridges.

    Wow, how did I miss that?

    All day long I see idiots on the Internet who can’t get the difference between “your” and “you’re” straight, but his is a new one. “Yours” with a possessive apostrophe inserted for no apparent reason.

    Amazing.

    I’m gonna have to alert the folks who run the Extraneous Apostrophe blog.

    Maybe Locher’s writing would improve if someone shot at him.

    That bullet is longer than the gun it came out of.

    Yesterday I had asked about what I referred to as a fax machine in the background in Panel 2. Why did I bring it up?

    Sunday, July 18: The caption reads “The lobby of the Science Museum.” Apparently this discussion takes place after Tracy’s speech on Saturday to the audience about what had happened. Tracy, Sam, and Liz are just taking up “too much space” explaining the same details again.

    Monday, July 19: No caption. Tracy and Liz about still repeating the same details. “Fax machine” in panel 1.

    Tuesday, July 20: Panel 1 caption: “Police Headquarters.” “Fax machine” in panel 2.

    Oh, so we’re now back at Police Hootrs, huh? And that “fax machine” seen yesterday wasn’t in the Science Museum, it was actually back at PH.

    It’s called TRANSITION, Mr. Locher and Mr. Brozman. Please try it sometime.

    And if that unit in the background is supposed to be a computer printer, then Police Hootrs should get some new equipment instead of using an old dot matrix with the perforated sheet feed.

    Must be serious budget problems with the Naperville PD. Do they still use VDT monitors with the green letters on a black background? Maybe they type up their reports using Kaypros.
