    One would hope that Alex would have a better understanding of Leo by now.

    It’s hard to know what will trigger PTSD episodes in advance.

    Alex’s learning curve steepens.

    But she’s willing to stick with it and keep learning. That’s worth a lot.

    Is Gram gonna move in? Or not?

    Garry Trudeau vilified Viet Nam vets but apparently just loves WOT vets. Typical leftist hateful hypocrisy.

    Only Doonesbury, babygirl. Advantage: me/you = 18/1. Just kidding. I don’t try to be pithy. Instead I read the strip, then meditate/sleep and the comment emerges effortlessly from my subconscious, surprising me. This way doesn’t make your hair hurt.

    So we’re back where the arc began last Monday, at Leo’s trailer in the D.C. suburbs. Some of our postings have registered disagreement about GBT’s route. Where did Leo’s truck run into “the occupy people”? How much time was covered by these six strips?

    On Monday, Alex jumped at Leo’s proposal to “drive in” and take Joanie to lunch. If they’’re starting from (say) Bethesda, and Boston is more than eight hours away, their “lunch” date must be for the following day. In all five of the M-F strips they’re wearing the same clothes, so the action takes place in a single day.

    The quickest route to Boston, I-95, would cross the Hudson via the Geo. Washington Bridge, But the truck seems to have detoured into Manhattan via the Holland Tunnel and gotten stuck among the OWS crowd on its “march” to Times Square. Leo’s crisis befalls them sometime past noon.

    In Friday’s strip, evidently later in the day, we hear the OWS crowd in the distance cursing the “oligarchy” and we see Leo and Alex pull out of Manhattan (notice the detailed cornices in panel 2) and head back to Bethesda.

    In the next (today’s) strip Alex, still wearing her black top and bracelet, calls Joanie to apologize for standing her up. The daylight outside seems to indicate the next day. If it’s the same day, at least ten hours have passed since they were sitting at the breakfast table; but at least they’ve called off the lunch date in time.

    Any suggestions for correcting this timeline?

    @David MCQueen

    Trudeau has never been either vilificatory or hateful or hypocritical. Ever read the pithy “comebacks” / parables / demos (e.g.“woman taken in act of adultery”) of Jesus responding to the vilificatory, hateful, hypocritical attacks of the scribes / Sadducees / Pharisees? Both spoke / speak truth to power.

    just because B.D. is a republican doesn’t neccesarily mean he is a villian

    P.D., Leo’s trailer is in Virginia. The OWS folks have something going in D.C. They were meeting Gram in D.C. Things didn’t quite turn out, though…

    Actually, D.C. is so accustomed to demonstrations that they have it down to an art. In reality, Leo would likely not have driven into the crowd, because where the demonstration route is, the road is closed.
