    Are we ever going to see Alix and hubby ,
    and see what happened? They were at
    her graduation ceremony when she
    went into labor, was on the ground
    needing help , and her husband and
    Dad could not find her. That is where
    they left her MONTHS ago, with no
    explanation. Someone said the writer
    was on vacation, has been old reruns
    ever since. Did Alex die? What happened
    to the babies? what happened to her
    husband?
    I know things happen in life, but someone
    needs to assume responsibility for this strip.

    As per comments passim, his week was supposed to be the return. However, last week Trudeau wrote to the newspapers that took the strip and said he was still busy with Alpha House for Amazon, and that he would only provide new Sunday strips for the time being. Scheduled return for daily strips is mid-November. He apologised to the papers for inconveniencing them, I’m not aware that he has apologised to his readers for letting them down too.

    Continuity complainers never seem to read the multitudinous explanations. Odd.

    Hi, Susan, I hope you have an easy and productive fast.
    .
    As I commented the last, there’s something wrong when we have the mindset that schools have to subsist on charity.
    .
    Why doesn’t someone start a website to support the military, and cut funding for that? After all, throwing money at a problem doesn’t solve it, as the cons like to tell us.

    people do send donations to active military personnel, and orgs like Amvets, which I donate to, are there to make sure veterans get what they’re entitled to. Plenty of $ for bombs just not for people in the line of fire.

    @Eggman61

    Thanks, Eggman, and thanks for donating. I did think of organizations such as yours and the USO, but I definitely meant supporting military operations through charity. I’m sure the right wouldn’t think twice about ponying up for that (sarcasm font).

    I do wish that political commenters of all stripes would be gentlemanly (or ladyly) about it. It’s embarrassing to have someone of one’s own stripe to call names, etc.

    I worked for a school district in California for ten years. Believe me they are fully funded they just waste most of it. It is sort of like giving a teenager an allowance, having him spend it all the first day on DVD’s and then complaining it’s your fault that he can’t buy lunch beccause your not giving him enough. Before you go on about teachers buying stuff for their class, ask any electrician, plumber or carpenter who buys their tools.

    It helps that in the past they so want to return to, things were set up so that they had all the power and wealth.

    Crowing achievement of goverment? Goverment is not reponsible for anything you listed. Mixing of races? My wife and I (and couples like us) are responsible for that, not the goverment. Gay marriage? The goverment is the one that says it is illegal. People fighting the goverment has made it legal in some states. Unions? They were not started by the goverment but by workers because the goverment wouldn’t do anything. Overtime pay and vacation was started by business’s to attract the better workers. There is still no law saying that workers must get vacation pay. Obamacare has killed the 40 hour week for millions of Americans though. That is your blind spot Night, you think of the goverment as a kindly deity supplying you with all things good. It is the people who empower the goverment not the other way around.
