    With a friend like him, who needs an enemy?!?

    If you go to Lynn Johnston’s website and use her Comics Archive and search for “Brad” to see all the Brad Luggsworth comic strips coming up in the next few years, you will find that Michael’s prediction about Brad is not going to come true. While this is sad news for Michael, it’s got to be great news for his friends, who appear to enjoy watching Michael getting beat up.

    That’s Gordon for ya’. He just happened to be Mike’s bestman at his wedding….in later years.

    Take the bully away and there’s nothing to do.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I remember taking my mother’s advice and being nice to one of the kids I “hated.” It worked like a charm. After my enemy was certain that my efforts were genuine, the feud ended. This didn’t keep me from fighting, though. I still needed the occasional pounding… and I gave a few in return. It’s interesting to know now, having talked to some of the kids with whom I had serious differences, that we had all come from families where discipline was strong and physical. If “a pounding” was commonplace at home, then this is how we resolved our differences outside!

    Look at Lynn’s observation as to how bullies are made. it all starts at home. But each person is different so they won’t have all been produced exactly the same way.

    There’re games to play, things to make, places to go, lots of stuff in childhood. It doesn’t take watching what bullies do. Bullies and bullying are totally useless and worthless.

    Lawrence was Mike’s best man, over the objections of Deanna’s mother. And Brad became a police officer.

    Sadly, many times it is the late bloomers – bullied who want a career in law enforcement. The hang with others like themselves(not unlike a gang – except they have the high moral ground) and then – after they catch up in growth, they train to be officers – some actually make it. And then they are free to do the things that the other kids did – like Fred Shultz(Bambi Bembenek’s husband)
