    At one point in the 1600s, tulips were the hot item. Someone actually traded a decent sized house for one tulip bulb. Really.

    Well, there you go, Caulfield. Plague-free for 10 (?) years.

    And then the bottom fell out of the tulip market and thousands went bankrupt overnight.


    Deborah Moggach wrote an excellent novel set in the era – “Tulip Fever”.

    I think Frazz is pointing us here – Cinnamon Girl.

    Though the cinnamon we use isn’t actual cinnamon. Actual Cinnamon bark is quite expensive. (maybe not WAR expensive, but quite pricy)

    I like how the depiction of Frazz and the broom in the 6th panel reinforces the message that history gives us perspective.

    They say, that, compared to thousands of years of history, this is the most peaceful time ever, when it comes to people killing people…Just a couple hundred years ago, life was cheap, brutal and short….

    We fight over oil today, tomorrow, water. (At least that’s what experts say)

    Yes, “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” In the state of nature, that is. Rousseau to the contrary.

    You don’t get Frazz’s intellect or insights from a GED. And when was he pictured as a student?

    Ceylon is known as Sri Lanka today. It sits off the coast of India.

    As you might know, salt was once traded the way money is used today. Later, in colonial times, people used to travel around the world just to buy a few spices.

    Intellect and schooling…while they are often coupled, can be independent of each other. Big factors in intellect are an inqusitive mind and persistance.
