    REX MORGAN: How many pregnant women actually do abstain from coffee and alcohol? This strip is doing a service by mentioning this.

    MARY WORTH: What a coincidence! When will they both mention that they have not been avoiding each other?

    APT3G: The commenter in AzCentral wrote that the real Gary Powers was shot down over Vietnam. False: he was shot down over Kazakhstan, then part of the USSR and , after being freed, died in 1977 in an air accident. I remember that year because it was during my father’s shiva (Jewish week of morning) that I saw it headlined.

    JUDGE PARKER: Was Neddy set up, or are we being set up (to think Thalia is a scammer when she’s not).
    MARK TRAIL: I find it hard to believe that Mark would go off in the plane with Wes and leave Cherry and Shelley alone in the wilderness – but apparently that’s what’s going to happen. Will the ladies be armed, just in case?
    MARY WORTH: I sure hope Beth and Tom have a chance to spend a little time together and overcome their “communication gap.”

    A3G – Lu Ann’s Gary was shot down over Viet Nam but they’ve had to change that to keep it more current.
    Judge Parker – So Neddie views the money as an advance which will be paid back if they get a big sponsor. But that wouldn’t double her money, as she said before. For everyone, it should be non-profit.
    @Florchi, either one is still possible.
    Mary Worth – I hope they both come to realize that Beth’s mother is the problem, and that Beth needs to declare her independence and find another way to care for her mother’s health needs.
    Rex – I hope June doesn’t have any big problems with this pregnancy. I’m glad I didn’t smoke and only drank occasionally, but I would have had a hard time giving up coffee. Is that really necessary? So many young women drink colas.

    Judge Parker – I still have that beachfront property in El Paso.
    Mark Trail – I don’t think Shelly appreciates the Great Out Of Doors very much.
    Rex Morgan – @Marvee, I don’t see how colas could be any less unhealthy than coffee.

    P.S.
    In Texas we call them cokes, with a little c. For example, “What kinda coke ya want? We got Coke, Dr Pepper and Root Beer.”

    @Marvee: The real Gary Powers was shot down by the Soviets over Kazakhstan not Vietnam (see my post above).

    The real Gary Powers went to work as a helicopter pilot for KTLA Channel 5 in Los Angeles and died when his news chopper crashed. I remember that it was a very state-of-the-art and sophisticated aircraft. He was flying back from Santa Barbara and ran out of fuel short of the Burbank airport. He was a hero to the end, he diverted his flight path at the last minute to avoid a group of children playing and cost himself his last chance to save his own life. (My younger brother’s best friend did the same thing – he diverted his “flame-out” jet aircraft away from base housing and got too low to the ground to eject in time.)

    I wasn’t talking about the real Gary Powers, just Lu Ann’s husband. I remember the U2 spy plane incident during the Eisenhower administration. Some were outraged that Eisenhower lied to us, but that’s the nature of spying.
