    They have that, “Who the xxxx are you?” look. Our boy Blackjack is WAY too clean for this crowd. What I’m guessing coming is, every gang needs a patsy or fall guy to take the rap. This nut will fit the bill perfectly. He seems to adore the bad guys, and I’m sure they will find some way to use him.

    This group sure isn’t hard to find…….hmmmmm did we used to laugh at Goulds villians in the earlier days? I think not…..hope Abner is about ready to escape so Tracy actually has at least one worthy adversary to worry about

    His ping-pong ball eyes are a good contrast to BB’s

    I just want to say that Blackjack is very similar to the Joker in his attitude towards Tracy. He doesn’t worship him as much as he feels that Tracy is the ultimate opponent. Of course winning is always nice, but don’t kill the other player, or you can’t play again.
    Of course, unlike the Joker, Blackjack values human lives, and doesn’t want any Innocent civilians getting hurt. In that regard he is a lot like Danny Ocean and pretty much follows the same three rules he does.
    1- Don’t hurt anybody.
    2- Don’t steal from anyone who doesn’t deserve it.
    3- Play the game like you have nothing to lose.

    It has also been mentioned that Blackjack is a sharp-shooter. He may also be a quick draw specialist. In short, if it is a fight to the death, don’t underestimate him.

    They have become a rudderless group, no clear Leadership, Yet, they have a sense in common, to hang together. There have been questions, and it’s been B-B Eyes who seems to provide most of the answers.
    Leadership will emerge . . . is that center of gravity shifting to the Video Piracy, once near dead in a tire - man ?

    Ah, meetings! Where minutes are kept and hours are lost! Wait a minute! Is anyone keeping minutes? Does anybody have an agenda for that matter?

    Is it just me, or have their been humorous intermission stories running pretty much since Thanksgiving?

    I’m an old Dick Tracy fan returning after decades. Truth be known, until the Milt Priggee cartoon, in which Dick Tracy satirizes Apple for its announcement of the iWatch (02 Aug 2012), I wasn’t aware that it was still in print. Coming back after decades means I have a lot of questions about what has gone in the meantime.

    For now, I’ll focus on Blackjack. I think it was Avenger09 who criticized BJ, comparing him to the Jumbler, someone who thinks to outwit the police by sending them clues. Criticism of late is even worse, that BJ “worships” DT? If so, then BJ is in the wrong profession!

    And another comment above, the three “rules”:

    Don’t hurt anybody
    Don’t steal from someone who doesn’t deserve it
    Play the game like you have nothing to lose

    Rule #2: Does that mean there are people who DESERVE to be robbed? Holy Robin Hood, Batman!

    That wraps up this post. I’ll save my Moon Maid comments for a second post.

    Good morning, VistaBill. It seems this meeting is a setup for a future story. Blackjack is amusing and a good contrast to the other characters. I think some of the lukewarm reaction to this meeting is because people are ready for Moon Maid’s story to begin.
