    Good morning, VistaBill and APOI. Yes, it’s kind of a strange place for an incognito meeting since everyone in the building probably knows now that Cinnamon Knight is on the roof.

    GWEEDO MURRAY!

    Thanks for the TV Guide complaint phone number.
    I have two laptops (one being an Apple) and neither
    one is showing the listings for the next week. So I
    don’t think the problem not showing the future list-
    ings is on my end.

    Mornin’ VB, APOI, ETC!
    Of course the Knight wants to meet him on the roof! Don’t all super-heroes meet on rooftops?
    I just wonder how a guy wearing a giant sardine can could get onto the roof?
    And I love Tracy’s look in the third panel! The arched eyebrow says it all!

    Yesterday, several commenters said Eddie Anderson’s character of “Rochester” on the Jack Benny Show was a racist black stereotype.

    Not true. Rochester was smart, literate, hard-working and very funny, the opposite of the standard 30’s racist stereotype of dumb, lazy, illiterate (like “Amos ’n Andy”), or
    fawningly obedient.

    The very first sit-com, the Jack Benny Show’s premise was that Jack was a famous radio star who was the ultimate cheapskate, and Rochester was his only servant, a combination of valet, chauffeur, cook, etc.

    Despite that, their relationship was more as equals; Rochester always swapped lines with Jack, ridiculing his boss’s cheapness, and he always got the better of his boss. (Benny wasn’t afraid to let other cast members get big laughs).

    Rochester was one of the earliest (to my knowledge) of what is now standard, the back-talking servant, only the relationship between Rochester and Benny was friendly, and not as antagonistic as on shows like “The Jeffersons.”

    (How cheap was Jack? The show’s most famous gag: A robber pulls a gun on Benny, and demands, “Your money or your life.” A long pause follows, and the robber repeats his threat. Benny’s exasperated response: “I’m thinking it over!”)

    not for a costumed hero-type. in fact, what would be truly odd is if he decided to meet tracy in the lobby…

    100% Right on CK and Tracy, NightShade. Anybody know how many stories high Police H.Q. is? And how the heck could he get up there? Climb a spice rack maybe?

    Since Richard is, like myself, a USNR JG, (ret), I want to wish him a pleasant December 7th.

    So… Why wasn’t the CK arrested when he first arrived at police headquarters? I’m pretty sure he and the Piranha have broken some law at that jewelry store.

    NightShade, here’s a story you might appreciate, as it was told to me: back in the day, Jack Benny and his entourage went to check in at Vancouver BC’s top spot, the Hotel Vancouver. The desk clerk informed Mr. Benny that his"black servant" was not allowed accomodation there. Jack informed him in no uncertain terms that, if they expected to get any of their future business, Eddie would indeed be staying with them. The hotel manager had to do some damage control.

    tracy looks CRAZY INTIMIDATING in teh first panel. could cinnamon knight be prepared to spill the beans to tracy and tell him that he and black p wanna help out? maybe tracy WILL send him to the academy.. or use him to force broadway’s hand. since mike said it would be an explosive christmas (paraphrasing of course) maybe the plan will go awry and black p will be broadway’s victim in the explosion of their apartment building? i agree with the poster yesterday who said this story got off to a slow start, but it has built up nicely
