    OK, I’m misting up.

    My two kids are just about the same ages as the two eldest in this strip and have kind of followed the same paths.

    I just love this strip.

    Actually, a wise man like Jim recognizes homphobia as the abomination.

    He can die gratified that small-minded twits concerned with the sex lives of fictional characters lie in a world where they can come out of their closets and stop “protesting too much”.

    How can anyone turn a sweet comic strip that has never been called political and turn the discussion into one? Please find a political cartoonist and continue this discussion there.

    I enjoyed this stip. If this is the end, it went out gracefully.

    Gay means they have chosen to act in an aberrant fashion - it doesn’t mean they’re not human. Let’s remember that and not treat gay people as less than human, any more than we would treat someone who is a heterosexual who lives a promiscuous life or lives with someone outside marriage. Both have a similar end result!

    Lynn; just a reminder that although the sun is approximately 92 million miles away, there is a high level of confidence that intelligent life exists….somewhere….just not in the preceeding comments. HAGD

    Now that this strip is coming to a close, I think it is entirely appropriate to comment on its impact, especially regarding Lawrence. Whether or not you agree with his lifestyle, kudos to Lynn for presenting Lawrence with the same humanity and flaws as any other character.

    txmystic said it best. My son and daughter are the same ages as Michael and Elizabeth and I’ve followed this strip since the beginning. I will miss Lynn’s compassionate as well as humorous way of portraying everyday life. Please save your almighty judgement of the characters for the editorial cartoons.

    Is this really the last strip? Because the last day of the month just happens to fall of a Sunday. What a wonderful coincidence! Not that I’m complaining about the last one (I thought it was perfect), but wouldn’t it be great to have one big closing Sunday strip? Although, I just reread the last panel of this strip, and now I wonder. I still say a big Sunday finale strip would be the way to go.

    Sunday the 31st will be the last strip. It will probably also be the one to move us smoothly into the new strip style.

    Okay, that’s cool. I just read that on her site, too. Maybe today’s strip was the last strip for the story. That works for me, I guess, but I’m still sad to see this “ending”.
