    Finally, a new arc. I see a compromise concerning Linda wanting to see her son.

    Well, those 3 months were the story plot focusing on the what I hope is not the last we see from Flask, but now we get to focus on poor Linda. (yeah, I know she was a Topsider but I feel terrible for her, not being allowed to see her son again, I don’t have kids but even I know that’s the most horrible thing a parent can ever go thru!)

    It would seem logical that she has recovered “trama” psychic care. The expression on her face does not convince me that she will follow all rules.Joining the food schrounging in an attempt to see her son? Maybe?
    Blessed Be

    Who’s the snarky “translater”? And we have to see about Petey’s friend in the beer cooler.

    I’d still be worried about her, considering the cruelty she displayed earlier:
    .
    http://www.gocomics.com/endtown/2011/10/19
    .
    She acted like Amon Hoth. Mutants were just things to her. When people are casually heinous like that, there normally is no change except to get worse when they are old. The horrible person at 40 is even more horrible at 80.
    .
    The ayatollas are a perfect example. Someone who would uncaringly commission the deaths of an entire generation in Iran by keeping a doomed war going 7 years after it was clear to both sides that it couldn’t be won.
    .
    Sometimes the impossible happens, though. Albert Speer was Hitler’s armament’s minister. Despite his evil, he fought a running battle with the SS for better conditions for those in his factories— not because he cared about people, but because a healthy person could produce the materials he needed and a starving one could not. He cared nothing for people. Then, after he’d lost everything, he apparently got saved and spent the rest of his life trying to make up for what he’d done.
    .
    Speer was the exception. Most Nazis, Soviets, Khmer Rouge, 1930s-70s Chinese communist party, etc. of that ilk were unrepentant to the end.

    By the way, the artwork on this is a beautiful example of character cartooning. Indeed, the bird could be a self-cartoon of the artist himself. (Or am I reading too much into it?)

    @rickD

    I don’t know who she is, but it must be difficult for a translater who’s a little horse.

    @Jenner

    or are you telling too much in it?

    Orientation, Re-education, Programming or Acceptance of the cards she has be dealt? She does not seem ecstatic about her new place in a strange world. Yeppers, it has been more than three months our time since Marx took his leave of Mallard, with all those dittoes as a security deposit.

    Marx’s dimensionometer looked like it had a thicker frame than earlier, and the orbits(?) aren’t seen, so maybe he had spares. I would like to see more of Marx, but it depends on Aaron Neathery’s plans, not so much a referendum.

    If people were involved enough to write and complain or compliment Aaron Marx, that is just a fraction of the people involved in the storyline. 35 years ago I could gave given you the marketing multiplier for various media on what percentage of people with involvement would contact the production, or distributor or advertisers. Then it was a very small number, and people were more likely to write if they were unhappy than those who were happy.

    We still await resolution of Linda, Petey and the Brain, and What Mallard can do with dittoes, with or without Marx. Holly and Wally have probably been catching up on their conjugating, unless Holly has to work double shifts to makeup for her unplanned leave. So from now on, if any of us have a server that looks like Holly, tip her doubly well.

    TSOJ mentioned the possibility of a Keep on Truckin auction piece featuring Marx as a Doo-Dah Man. That could interest me in 3-4 weeks because I am booked solid for at least three weeks with assorted medical procedures, Mohs surgeries (plural), a few biopsies, other tests and the big annual CML tests, so I shall be quite distracted. It is really not a big deal, but part of the time I am unsure of my ability to bid, and I know I will be extremely medicated.

    @ Everyone
    Remember to vote for Endtown 2.0 and Doc Rat. I have been inconsistent in my voting and promoting since Labor Day, but shall get better, and there should be some days when I will be able to vote meaningfully.

    I doubt Linda sees this as a second chance at a new life, with its own freedoms and triumphs. More like a life-long prison sentence with no chance of parole or early release. Arrested, judged and condemned for a crime she didn’t commit. And the rest of the day doesn’t promise to be any better.

    She may not feel she committed a crime, but she is having to deal with the consequences of her actions.

    I bear-ly recognized her without tears flowing down her face…
