    Because you’re so predictable, Elly.

    Ever wonder why previous generations had ‘parlors’ where children were not allowed unless under supervision? It is where the GOOD furniture was and where guests could be sure of not “stepping in it”! While children are our most valuable products, there was a time when the house was not their ‘free-range’ zone.

    I must be one of these weird readers who prefers a certain degree of continuity even in the weekend strips… “Your mom is not coming, Michael, she’s still on vacation…” This could have been better done as a grandparent strip.

    WebSpider, Lynn never had the Sunday strips be part of the ongoing story arc.

    That’s true, SeS1066. The parlor was where we were not allowed unless Grandmother was with us. And, to my Father, children were to be seen and not heard. That’s why I was always in the living room romping with my own kids.

    I agree a bit with both sides. While children should learn to respect property and recognize more adult areas, they should also have a place to feel free to play freely.

    “Can’t we all just get along?”

    No, everyone cannot get along when you’ve trolls hanging about who have nothing more important to do in life than spread negativity around, trying to spoil everyone else’s fun.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If people want to treat this as only a comic, then great! And if other people want to treat it as a 2-dimensional soap opera and comment on it like that, that’s also great! I’m good either way. If people don’t like it done the soap opera way, then I think they should read only the comic, skip the comments, and move on. Why people have to be so negative and ugly towards their fellow man, I do not know. It’s why we’ll never be able to achieve world peace.

    Ah, yes, the litany of what our parental units said. I’m not a parent, but I am a leader of the kids at my church - I lead a group of grades 4/5 on Wednesday “mid week bible group” and on Sundays I’m down in the kids School … and I find myself saying “this is a house, NOT a playground, stop running around!” and “use your indoor voice, you’re not outside!” Ah well.

    To add onto what GretchensMom said - if some people want to think of the comments section as a ‘place to make ‘friends we’ll never meet in life.” then that’s our prerogative as well Leave us alone you Negative Neds!

    An engineer’s take: IMHO there’s a very logical reason for Sunday comics not to be just a continuation of the weekly story arc: subscriptions to hard-copy papers do not necessarily include both. If you only read the weekend edition, you’d miss most of the story. Recapping the weekly arc on Sunday is one way to handle it. Keeping them separate as Lynn does is another.

    Why do some of you tell us we have to accept other perspectives but you yourself apparently cannot do the same?

    Just curious.

    She should’a just ran them outside and then followed them with Lizzie! A nice day in the sunshine instead of in front of the tv, or like me, in front of the computer.
