    I hope he bought the right textbook.

    I know what Ray means. I have ADD (attention deficit disorder), and have always had it. It made school hell. If Ray has it, in addition to everything else that’s plaguing him, maybe there’s some hope for him at the college level. (College less of a hell than grades 1-12, and graduate level education was also less of a hell.) With help, a student can cope with it. The rest of his “stuff”? The PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)? I can’t say.

    I left a post yesterday on how to access the archives. I hope it helped.

    Actually I saw it, and answered it, but apparently GoComix reset to the above strip too soon for you to see it.
     
    Basically, I can’t find a “calendar” option. When I search the page for that word, I get no hits.

    Go to slate.com, where this strip also runs, and you can access all the archives.

    Nitpicking: In panel 1, BD’s coat collar is up. Panel 2, up. P3, down. P4, back up.

    Look at the upper right corner of the comic. Next to the date you’ll see the back arrow and a little crosshatched box. That’s the calendar. Click on it, and in the drop-down box you can go clear back to the first strip on Oct. 26, 1970.

    The calendar icon is right above the last panel. It literally looks like a calendar page.

    Okay, I found that. Now I’ve forgotten the dates you mentioned. Would you repeat those?

    Ray’s so self-centered, I imagine due to his nightmares in the “sand trap” (February 28), that he wakes BD up in the middle of the night to ask to see him at a bar. Amazing thing: BD agrees! And he agrees to see him in 15 minutes. Obviously, BD cares about his war bud. And obviously BD has recovered to an amazing extent. Then Ray, back in Afghanistan, was “blown up” for the 17th time (May 9). Apparently he’s not going back there any more. Trudeau makes a powerful point about the idiocy of this war. And one of his most remarkable points is that recovery is possible. BD is exhibit A.

    Thanks, Lucky Louie. Guess LWP’s gone to see the sand man.

    It’s the calendar icon to the upper right of the strip image itself, to the right of the strip date. Click on the icon to open the calendar, select a year from the drop down menu and change months by clicking on the right or left (triangle shaped), arrows.

    The archive goes back to 01-01-2001.

    Thanks, Skulker. I already found it, due to the effort of Lucky Louie.

    I have ADHD, too. Inattentive type. I could manage fine through grade 12 due to being very bright. College kickd my keister. The workaday world’s not been much better.
