The teacher does know how to learn also.
Dunno Caulfield , Mr’s Olsen is a pretty broad broad!!
Good one! The phrase that just keeps on giving. 1937-2018.(you have to be of a certain age to get it.)
i remember ditching ‘moby dick’ when i was in high school and thinking it was the coolest book, when i read it in college. caulfield is supposed to be the smart kid in that class, even though he’s still in third grade, after quite a few years.
I’ve adopted a “hundred page” rule: if a book doesn’t grab me by then (or worse, if I dislike everyone in it), I close it and move on. Life is too short to spend it with people you don’t like.
Great answer (for once), Mrs. Olsen.
I read 4/5 of some “important” book that I just could not finish, and now I can’t even remember the title—that’s how much I hated it
I had to read Jude the Obscure for college English. I hated every page. I hated every character. And I love Victoriana. Amazing what a really dull author can do with a really dull subject.
Personally i like murder mysteries. And, if i may say so, i highly recommend mine. My third book will be published this September
Caulfield is interested in hearing advice from Mrs. O? And Mrs. O gets off a decent zinger? Have the Russians hacked “Frazz”?
The allusion to the radio coverage of the Hindenburg disaster is a real groaner.
Not the first time someone pulls this stunt either. It’s always funny though (81 years later, mind you).
I was down to the Florida Blue Springs last week. Oh, the huge manatees!
Just think of how much the world has changed. WLS, the Chicago radio station that sent a reporter to New Jersey to cover that historic landing, barely has a news department now. Let alone the resources to send a staffer halfway across the continent to provide a report that would — get this — air the next day.
Clever double entendre.
This strip raises the “Too soon?” question. Dozens of humans, incinerated? While the moment is described for posterity by a professional newsman, overcome by emotion?
Read Morrison’s remarks about how he couldn’t ask the nearby witnesses for their reactions because their friends and families were passengers who were dying.
It’s been a long time. But if there’s a guy who comes up a little short in the empathy department, it’s Jef Mallett.
I read that last line literally, as in to have an obligation to study literature. Caulfield may not owe the author anything but he owes it to himself to give the book another try, maybe in a few years. He could still hate the book but he might be surprised.
