    I see why he has trouble adjusting to normal reality.

    He is just fooling himself if that old normal “rocks.” Since most of it is bordem punctuated by terror. But I wonder if he will be thinking that when he is back over there.

    As I read somewhere around 250 comics per day, I usually do not read the comments, except in cases like this one where
    I asked a simple question yesterday and all I got were snarky replies, telling me to go back over who knows how many days of very long comment threads to find the answer.
    I know you’ve probably explained it all before, but can someone please tell me why the summer reruns have been going on for so much longer than usual?

    @itisme….I’m not on his “notify” list or anything, but near as I can make out, Mr. Trudeau’s project has gone into overtime…

    If Alpha House is based on four Democrats, why have the series with four Republicans?

    Going to a combat zone for the first time one must learn a tremendous amount of new things and at the same time unlearn a tremendous amount of old things. For some, returning to the “normal” reality is analogous to having a bachelors degree and being placed in a nursery school. That isn’t meant to demean nursery school attendees or those in the “normal” reality; only to give an idea of how different and out of place a returning vet may “feel”, of knowing what others don’t. As far as war is a drug, I used to speed in my car on lightly traveled roads up to 95 mph (car wouldn’t go faster) to get the adrenaline going, just to feel alive again. I really appreciate GB’s attention in this matter. It amazes me how much he knows about so many subjects.

    I’ve got to add one more thing: A combat zone is essentially a commercial-free environment. Yes, some had subscriptions to magazines such as Time and Playboy and some received their hometown newspapers; it can be argued that the labels on our packs of cigarets (sic) and our cans of beer are also advertisements. But it was basically free of ads. To those looking for a new challenge, try living in a commercial-free environment for a year. It is a form of peace most Americans will never know. That could also be a reason why Ray doesn’t mind returning to the CZ.

    “When it’s cold, I bundle up good; so far, I haven’t had the flu in years.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I just recovered from a flu that they say is sweeping the country. Temps here (FLA) are in the eighties every day.
    You don’t have get cold to get the flu —
    you just have to be in close proximity to
    someone who has it.

    Thanks, TEA Party. It’s the first time I’ve been right this month!

    You just need a remote control with a mute key on it to live acommercial-free life. Also a fast forward key can give one .a great sense of satisfaction.

    I see we’ve returned to the old normal here


    Doesn’t do much good for GoComics to ban the Trolls if they just let them slink back in

    No, goweeder, that’s only a tiny part of commercials. Tee shirts with messages, the sides of truck vans, billboards, what we see in grocery stores, hardware stores, diners, bars – I can barely begin to list the many ads we sense. Also, try living without electricity. I remember a lecture in physics in which the instructor mentioned that there are low frequencies associated with electricity which have a negative, though subtle, effect on humans. Maybe there are those among the readership who can elaborate?
