    Alex stay with him. He is more important than some demonstration. And also, I was mistaken about Leo’s reasons for not joining the demonstration.

    Which will Alex do, join the march or comfort Leo?

    Never been in combat have you. 30 years later and I still dislike crowds or closed areas.

    No, Sonny I haven’t. But if I see someone upset as Leo is, the only right thing to do is to attend to his needs.

    I see both Toggle and Ray have been retconned to Afghanistan. As far as I recall both of them were depicted only in service in Iraq, along with BD.

    This weeks arc started about Leo meeting Joannie. Then it was about OWS, 125 posts yesterday. Now, we are dealing with PTSD. GT keeps you on your toes

    Yeah, it makes such a pleasant change from Luann. I used to read this strip on Slate (for eight years now, more or less) and now that I know it’s here as well I’ll be hanging out here. At least one can comment here.

    Keenly observed, BB. GBT wants to make the violence of a suicide bombing more immediate to Alex, the OWS crowd, and his readers.

    And retconning (had to look it up on the Urban Dictionary) is a fair description of the way authors like GBT and Cervantes switch their historical perspective.

    Ray and his company were in Afghanistan when Ray was finally shipped stateside by the doctors. I don’t remember Leo being in Afghanistan.

    That’s why it’s strange that he talks of being in Kandahar.

    Just as strange and effective as Quijote retconning what happened in the Cave of Montesinos.

    What timing – Occupy Athens is at full boil.

    That’s the magic of GBT’s art at its best. When he’s true to the political occasion, he can make reality seem to unfold before our eyes.
