    Such exceptional people. Or maybe not. Maybe this is the rule. If so it is a good one.

    Very touching. There are some good people in the world – even in real life.

    More good than bad, I think, but sometimes it takes a tragedy for us to realise it.


    And, of course, goodness is not newsworthy, so we rarely hear about it.

    The lieutenant/coach didn’t start out as “good.” He then lost his leg and witnessed his tank crew loosing more. It turned him into being “worthy,” which isn’t merely “good.” That morph doesn’t just automatically happen, others, under the same circumstances, turn into bitter self-pitying haters. But the lieutenant didn’t, he rose to the occasion, and so did the kid. Out of violence and evil can come some good. Isn’t that what most religions are about?

    Is it just me, or is this strip a little dusty?

    But we who send or allow them to be sent to these useless, futile wars, we are not worthy.

    This really is a beautiful strip..not only is it about becoming more than you were, but about the worthiness of the women involved as well. Boopsie has stuck by BD for a long time. BD had his rough moments, too. I don’t remember the date, but BD had his crisis moment and finally turned to counseling.

    The strip has been in rerun all summer while Gary is working on Alpha House, a TV comedy. Back after Labor Day.

    I’ve always loved this strip, too. It harkens back to the very early, successful strips which were almost always morality tales. Calvin and Hobbes, too. Long ago, I really liked Rick O’Shay for this quality except it devolved into religiosity too frequently. I think all great strips are done by great story tellers. Originally, it was the Duck family, Little Lulu, Bugs, et al. Remember the original Tarzan? Prince Valiant?
