    A bit too skinny…

    An amateur. A pro would never mention how she felt about Obama. By the way, are those hairy underarms or tattoos?

    @jrmerm

    Tatts. And she’s an actress- their emotions are all over the place.

    Look at it this way: because of Obama she has work.

    Wasn’t expecting Toggle’s remark — it made me LOL — brilliant solution!

    Yesterday Skye said Sherm was “sweet”; today he calls her "darlin’. If a romance is brewing, I’d bet on Sherm rather than Leo.

    Does everything have to have romance attached?

    This reminds me of why I didn’t make the first million in media. There are a few other places, too. There are some things I know I won’t do. That’s one reason I can’t ever be a Republican or conservative…I won’t take advantage of the weaker or poorer…so Skye is, in her ‘professionalism’, already a sell-out, and untrustworthy.

    @DylanThomas: Bolocks! Didn’t you see how Leo looked at her in yesterday’s strip? I bet Sherm calls everybody ‘darling’.

    By the way, jrmerm, what if there was some underarm hair? We’re born with it, you know. Even women. I hope Europeans never get as inhibited about body hair as Americans.

    “Skye is … a sell-out, and untrustworthy”
     
    I don’t see enough data to support that conclusion.

    “DylanThomas: Bolocks! Didn’t you see how Leo looked at her in yesterday’s strip?”
     
    I just looked at yesterday’s strip a few seconds ago. In the first panel Leo wasn’t looking at Skye. In panels 2-4, he’s looking at her, but IMO not with “the baby gleam” in his eyes.

    Depends on what the artist Trudeau wants to accomplish. Count up all the Doonesbury romances — and, in terms of romances, marriages, children, and divorces — you’ll find he tracks the non-comic “real” world rather accurately.

    Could be a boy named Skye. Girl’s names do happen to boys. Johnny Cash sang about “A Boy Named Sue”. Then there’was Billy Grahan’s iconic singer George Beverly Shea. And I worked in periodical publishing with a very masculine guy named Shirley who was a typesetter.

    As one politico might put it “Only as long as there are men and woman”…..Rapunzel,Rapunzel,“let down your underarm hair”?

    She looks like she’s on something.
