    He does stutter when he talks about the war.

    Jeff, stop opening your mouth before you put your foot in it.

    Who’s cooler than Leo?

    @Buzza Wuzza

    He is the most likable character in the Doonesbury stable.

    Your advice to Jeff is too late.

    Next Jeff will take his book and shove it under Leo’s nose. “Here, read this!”

    Leo is just setting Jeff up for a mighty fall … I can feel it.

    …I didn’t think their generation was supposed to be a petty as mine.

    At the rate he’s going, it’ll soon be both feet — up
    to the knees….

    Keep talkin’ your bull****, Jeff. Publicly hang yourself with your own delusions. I’m just waiting for his publishers to turn on him and sue him from fraud. Whatta loser.

    I assume Toggle means he served in Afghanistan, was wounded there, then blown up in Iraq. I don’t recall seeing Toggle till we saw him in Iraq, and I guess GT is backfilling his history and making it relevant to the current political situation.

    I noticed that with Ray as well some time ago. There seems to be a fair bit of retconning going on to fit the characters to more topical situations.

    If the Empire had invaded Iran already, we’d perhaps have had him there as well.

    gmartin997 – We didn’t meet Leo until he was driving BD’s Humvee in Iraq. There is nothing to say that he didn’t serve a previous tour in Afghanistan – many vets have been on both fronts.

    Please, SueB, can the “hero” talk. Leo is not a hero. He was a soldier who got seriously injured while doing his job in a corrupt & unjustified occupation, and now he is recovering.


    He is my favorite of the new Doonesbury generation, however, and he & Melissa are two great creations. It troubles me slightly that they were both people who made the poor decision to join the military, but one can hardly blame Trudeau. When one lives in a super-militarized culture, one is likely to find interesting characters in the military.
