    Did Garry change his drawing style over the years?

    It evolved over time, yes.

    Back then, newspapers were still relevant.

    No, not at all, what are you talking about?

    In the previous strip, Mike had bought a paper from couple of militants because – let’s be honest – he was scared of them.

    Mike was clueless back then, so we’ll excuse the fact that he’s raising the wrong fist.

    Funny !  Yesterday morning I was reading a Mother Jones article about the Black Panthers where the “up against the wall” phrase was mentioned and also how part of their platform was the free schooling and fooding of poor kids, in this case, po’ black kids. The gun toting and violent aspects of the movement did not win them so many friends.

    Your posted missing piece makes me wonder how many other strips will just happen to get skipped over in this rerun series?

    There’s a REASON that Gary skipped the prior strip.

    All you have to do is go look at it and you’ll figure it out pretty quick.

    I will respond to Mr Green’s flawed attacks later,but now, leukemia calls. I do respect all people, and my post was sincere. There is no error there unless you wish to find it.


    I did use parasite in the vernacular sense, rather than the strict biological sense, but was quite pleased that Rp GG and others were able to inform us as to the current classifications of parasites, mutuals, and symbionts. In addition to learning a little something, the biological discussion was conducted courteously and respectfully.

    Mr Green, I was not educated in the Stone Age, and the idea of assigning letter grades to students at an academy in the Bronze Age is quite foreign, and would have been quite shocking to the Citizenry.

    Mr Green made a very wrong assumption about a statement I made. The prestigious(in the French sense) Professor physically jabbed me with his finger a few times, and grabbed my shoulder, prompting one of his colleagues to restrain him. I did not initiate violence, but I do not have any betters. Nor do I have any inferiors. In the grand scheme of things, even Stephen Hawking is but a mere insect compared to the Genius of the seen and unseen worlds. Science changes all the time. Science is simply a process of observation and attempts to understand how things work. 21st century humans are quite arrogant if they think they can fully comprehend the seen and unseen one song.

    Sincerely & Respectfully

    When were papers “relevant”? All newspapers have done for the last 50 years is re-hash old news.

    Looking forward to the introduction of Zonker Harris all over again as the stoned “hippy in the football huddle” (Coach!). Also when the crew crew moved to the common house (Walden Puddle and Zonker’s wheat patch!). BD’s deployment to Viet Nam (Phred the terrorist!). Oh God. I think I am having an L.S.D. flashback …..
