    “And I swear by all that is holy, that if you hurt, damage, defame or in anyway injure, this, my son, fruit of my loins, bearer of my unique genetic inheritance, and the only member of this family ever to make any serious money, you will feel the Wrath of Rick!

    Don’t make me wrathly. You wouldn’t want to see me when I’m wrathly”

    Take a close look at Rick’s hair and beard; you can see the grey on the edges. Plus, Rick has always looked older than his age, befitting his morose personality.
    Mike Doonesbury has clearly aged, as has BD and especially Mark.
    What you should ask is, “has anybody noticed that the only one who hasn’t aged is Zonker?”

    In Zonker’s case, maybe it’s what he smokes

    Well, he’s vindicated in a way. Look which two states are sending their team to the Superbowl. Super what?

    Isn’t this another repeat?

    Welllll….Yes. Yes it is! Isn’t it the norm for this strip to endlessly repeat its self with a few nuggets of current thrown in to tease?

    ‘Rue the day’? Who talks like that?

    I had a neighbor that was in his 50s and looked like he was in his early 30s, at most. And he shared a life long habit with Zonker. So maybe there’s something to be said about it.

    Add Louis Armstrong, Carl Sagan, piano great Glenn Gould, and Peter Sellers to the list, to name a few.

    Part of the charm of Doonesbury is that the current headlines are included. Most other comic strips do not provide that.

    “Isn’t this another repeat?”
    For those of us with short memories,
    nothing is ever a repeat.

    Just a confirmation on the “Is this a Flashback strip?” front; GBT’s syndicate sent a notice to client newspapers indicating that he couldn’t file new material for this week due to an illness in the family. When in doubt, check, where a special header always indicates Flashback status.

    Aren’t some of these comments reruns? Can’t they come up with something original?
