    Bet if you applied yourself, you could find something to do that was more fun …

    I occasionally develop a slight stutter when highly stressed. This guy is just permanently in that state, squared, from what I understand of PTSD and anxiety/stress disorders in general. I sympathize with this rerun.

    I believe in this case it’s traumatic brain injury, not PTSD. Of course, with TBI you get both.

    Alternative rerun – the penny drops for Rick.

    Mike31g, let me know when you want to take over again, once your computer problems are fixed. There were a couple more of this arc I was going to link to, that’s all.

    Also Sherm – yesterday’s last panel showing why.

    so, did his injuries from the IED happen before or after Bush told the insurgents to “bring it on”

    I’ll be interested how the twins and Leo interact.

    I can imagine scenarios where the two twins are very different from each other and develop much different ways of communicating.

    The same Alex that also raises jealousy to new heights in other strips?

    Also add brain damage concerning his speaking. Otherwise he is normal.

    If I remember this arc, isn’t Sky due to show up soon?

    Give Alex credit for not finishing his sentences. Good girl Alex!

    I’m concerned about the direction this is headed.

    Toggle was injured well after “Bring it on” and in fact after “Mission Accomplished”.

    I would be afraid to say to a stutterer that I enjoy the suspense while listening to that person. I am afraid someone might take it the wrong way. But as long as it would be accepted in the spirit it was intended, it seems ok. Often, we see things portrayed in movies and comics and other artistic avenues which one would probably not say in real life. Just so no one in real life gets any ideas which might risk someone’s feelings, I guess it is ok.
