    Eww… yes, Jeff’s half-sister is Alex’s mother…
    dunno whether you have to bother saying “Half-uncle”
    cos you use the word "Uncle for even the non-blood-related husband of your aunt…
    but whatever, it’s closer than first cousins….
    waaaay too close for comfort.

    In fact I remember Jeff explaining their relationship to Zipper years ago,
    when either they visited Alex at MIT, or she and Drew visited Walden…
    and Zipper asked why Jeff didn’t hit on Alex.
    Hope he hasn’t forgotten!
    HE HAS FORGOTTEN AND IT’S REALLY CREEPY! He has also forgotten how Leo got that eye patch. His delusions are becoming more serious.

    A moment of reluctant reality in that last panel.

    I left you a post late last night. Just to reiterate, I agree with you 100% about not responding to certain elements on the Reich, as difficult as it sometimes is.

    Pikes Peak ? Leo and Alex are hitting new heights ! With this heat and drought, I hope they have plenty of water and the vehicle didn’t overheat on the way up.

    Before the 20th century Eastern European and possibly Middle Eastern Jewish men often married their nieces. I have a distant cousin in Argentina whose ancestors were an uncle-niece marriage before they left Galicia. It was forbidden for an aunt to marry her nephew, but if you read Exodus, you will see that’s exactly what happened with Moses’ parents.

    @Linguist

    You can drive up, hike, or take the cog railway.

    And get some of their famous doughnuts while you’re up there.

    I lived in Monument, CO in the 70’s before I moved to Sedona, Az. I don’t remember the cog railway or the doughnuts. Sounds like I missed a good deal.

    I really doubt that, Jeff!

    Ewww!
    And thanks LWP
    with your help, I didn’t have to repeat any of it!


    I’ll just repeat this part: Ewww!


    And BTW — yes, engaging with trolls only makes them … um… trollier.

    Yes, and what about Adam and Eve’s children? Who did they “marry”?

    Not getting it. Jeff’s MOM is Alex’s GRANDMA. No? What am I missing? And that makes him what to Alex? (Apart from irrelevant.)

    Right, JJ would be his half-sister… That’s so weird.
