    My invitations must have been lost in the mail.

    I dislike the prehistoric conception of royalty.

    To make it current, just substitute “baptism” for “wedding.”

    Sam’s still wide-eyed – this flashback is old.

    2011 – as per the copyright message between the first two panels, and the date of the Cambridges’ wedding…

    Yeah, did he retire permanently or something?

    I swear you’re all registering new handles just to wind us up. There’s a forum somewhere where you all divvy up the days for who’s going to ask about reruns, isn’t there…?

    My post from the very top of last Friday’s comments:

    Yes, it’s a rerun, only Sundays’ are new. Sometime mid-November. For further details see comments passim ad nauseam, or google it. Please don’t ask, we’re sick to death of answering.

    I liked this arc and don’t mind the rerun. I will be glad when according to slate.com new daily strips will start again in November. Haven’t seen the show Trudeau started yet, anyone else?

    It was canceled. The network said it was too derivative and didn’t have any rerun potential in syndication.

    Each to their own. I would think that if those countrys that still have royals didn’t want them around, they would be gone. Just remember- the story goes that the throne of England has a hotline to “god”.

    The Daily News says November 18th.

    It hasn’t been cancelled; it’s not on a network.

    How rude. It must be Monday because it is easier to ignore someone’s post than to post this trash.

    Yes, we did have a revolution, but for reasons I can’t fathom, some Americans can’t lose their fascination with the British royalty.

    About a generation ago, I heard a noise in my living room early one morning and went to investigate. Rather than the burglar I feared, it was my roommate’s girlfriend, glued to the television with Kleenex in hand, watching Charles and Di get married 6-7 time zones away. (The minister sounded like Alfred Hitchcock.) She was there because my roommate had a large (for its day) color TV, and she only had B&W at home. I muttered something along the lines of “Thought we got rid of those people back in the 1700s,” and went back to bed.

    I was surprised that she of all people, a doctoral student in biochemistry, would get caught up in that. Education level apparently has nothing to do with it.
