    Macy’s? All the best shoplifters go to Saks or Barney’s.

    A few generations ago Mary’s was the place to steal from especially in the upper Northeast

    Is this the same Duke who becomes frontman and nursemaid to tyrants and dictators?

    I’f you’ve ever been to the Macy’s “After Christmas White Sale”, you would have reason to fear for your life. Little old ladies with huge handbags have gotten into fights, using the purses as weapons, over a sweater, or sheet sets on sale!
    It’s scary watching them. Like a feeding frenzy in a school of sharks!

    I remember being blown away when I read Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail’72. That knowledge made these Duke strips so much more enjoyable.

    Why? These are the strips on which he built his reputation in the first place.

    Without his shades, Duke looks kind of meek and harmless.

    Trudeau gained in polish, and depth was something that was added to the strip, bit by bit, over the years. The early strips were exuberant, irreverent, and often went where no comic strip had gone before (not even Pogo or Li’l Abner). These are the work of a highly talented kid, and they still look good to me.

    (Nope, not following up with a joke about drugs and the 60s. Write your own, if that amuses you.)

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – laugh-out-loud funny.

    Isn’t there a store that has a discount sale on designer wedding dresses that regularly turns into a donnybrook?
