    Yes, this “Doonesbury” is a rerun. Garry Trudeau is on hiatus, as he works on another project. New strips should return in September.

    You do want him out of your house, don’t you?

    sigh No other strip has the number of reruns Doonesbury has.

    I agree with what someone else said earlier this year: When Trudeau wants to take a break or work on another project, we would like to see strips from the early years. How about a bit of Doonesbury nostalgia?

    What “special project” is Trudeau working on?

    Meaning of Lila has been in reruns for about a year

    Strips from the early days would remind us of a time before GT became such a pedantic bore.

    rpmurray, bawana, Tucci, Jogger2, desertdwlr, why are you all here?

    Did I miss something, and this has been declared “Troll Convention Comment Blog”?

    Or are you all secretly trying to get educated, but are afraid to admit the guilty pleasure, since all your friends are teabagger religionut freakoid throwback knuckledraggers?

    And about the amazing number of comments revealing the “awareness” that this is a re-run" – and going on to complain about it:

    Could it be that you don’t know the past strips are all available in the history? Do you really think anybody with half a brain doesn’t know this is a re-run? Do you think Trudeau gives a damn what you think about his work or his schedule?

    Let me suggest that you allow yourself the great relief and relaxation available to those of us who tune in, enjoy the memories, and look forward to the pleasure of seeing whatever it is that Trudeau comes up with next. Most of us consider it an honor and a privilege to be aware enough to enjoy Doonesbury. Trudeau is one of the remarkable geniuses of our era. And that should be obvious whether or not you agree with all of his viewpoints.

    Interesting thought, that. I can’t remember any that I don’t agree with, but there may have been one at some point.

    “Don’t call this a comeback! I’ve been here for years!”

    I wonder if Big Al in syria will end up impaled on a spire in Syria only to be replaced by jihadist wackos.

    Has anyone noticed that very little has changed since these strips first came out? Islamists, Shiites, and Sunis killing each other, plus a few ‘peace-keepers’ on the side?

    Alpha House is a wonderful show written by Trudeau and available for free at Amazon videos. It has the Trudeau stamp all over it. If you enjoy Doonesbury you will definitely enjoy it. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

    I’m curious to know why you read Trudeau when you hate his values and why you take part in thte discussion when you have no contribution beyond insulting his work. Isn’t it just bangng your head against a rock? Wouldn’t you be better off praising the work of someone whose values you celebrate?
    Or if you want to denigrate, wouldn’t it be more effective to research a bit and back up your values with facts?

    @James Lewis

    What education do you have Lewis? I have PhD from an elite university, but happen to be politically conservative and an evangelical Christian. You remind me of a knuckle dragging school yard bully whose only tactics are name calling and picking fights. Attend an anger management class and get an education yourself you Brownshirt thug.

    Gawd ! A comic strip that requires commenters supply citations and sources, book line and verse !
