    I don’t think the family relationship between Alex and her father, Mike, and her stepmother, Kim, is very warm.

    @Thirdguy

    Well, good, Thirdguy, as long as you think it through.

    Babygirl:
     
    Hello, and
    Let it snow.
     
    Every body:
     
    Keep hangin’ tough, fuzzy bears: Tomorrow’s rerun is — crossin’ our paws’n’claws — the last for awhile. And maybe, just maybe, after Sunday’s 8 panels, Trudeau will continue this story line into new territory.

    What people aren’t seeing here is, this has NOTHING to do with Leo. Only Alex’s problem with not living with reality. She hasn’t even asked Leo if he wants to get married and she’s already thinking about living in Paris with him. All her parents are trying to do is keep her on the ground instead of the clouds. Alex doesn’t even seem to care that she hasn’t talked to Leo about this. She wants to live HER dream and everyone else be damned of they don’t go along with it.

    Alex is thinking it through. After all she has to get everything in place and figured out before she asks, I mean tells Leo the good news. It will be such a nice surprise for Leo. (is this where I put the snerk?)

    NYC is beautiful in any weather.

    Alex thinks she is doing good by both of them but she is really being selfish. Can’t recall what Leo said in response but I believe it didn’t jibe with her expectations.

    Plus, do they also have good pizza places in Paris?

    I wouldn’t read anything into that. Warmth has never been Trudeau’s forte. It’s just not what he does. You know the strips of Sam last week throwing out her dolls? Honestly, that’s one of the very few times I can ever remember Trudeau showing any extended interaction between Sam and her parents at all, let alone getting sentimental about anything. B.D. getting semi-gooey for a minute (“they grow up so fast”) seemed almost strange to me because it’s so unusual.
    There used to be a few tender moments when Alex was a kid. But even those were Trudeau’s version of tender. If he gets warm, it’s on his terms. X)

    Careful for what you wish for Susan, what would you do with 2 feet of snow?

    Thanks, JLG, for the historical pericope. For a few years I didn’t follow Doonesbury, since I was living in a small town in eastern Washington state, and the local newspaper didn’t carry the strip.
     
    (That’s redneck, KKK, reich-wing country — which explains why. They even have a town there named Dixie, which was founded by KKKers and sympathizers after the Civil War. Their library carries old photos of white-robed marches that continued for years after. Discontinued now, though. Another item: I got a death threat on my answering machine after publishing a letter-to-the-editor favoring gun control. And I’m a gun owner and favor gun ownership! Goes to show . . . .)

    I thought that Gary was very tender regarding the death of Dick Davenport.
