    Please don’t go, Walt. It’s bad enough that your wife was kicked out of the strip.

    Mm, Rod’s right. Walt would be, by now, one of the oldest dozen people in the world, and the second oldest man alive. Much older, and Jim’d have to go back on the progressive aging thing that’s a signature element of the strip.

    That was scary.

    The more-or-less real-time aging in GA seems to imply that old Walt will someday have to go. But will it still be Gasoline Alley without him? On the other hand, even if he does finally die, his character could go on forever in dreams and flashbacks. Maybe we’ll see in 2013. Happy New Year, everyone!

    Time keeps moving on. My father was born 110 years ago on Jan. 31. He passed away at 92 and it still hurts. Jim S. will do right by his strip for as long as he can, and maybe there will be a successor.

    Don’t even think about it! Hands off Uncle Walt!

    I agree. I would love to see Jim do a flashback story where Walt was once again a young man. Some of the old characters (Sarge, Pert, Doc, etc.) could appear in the story. I would love it if we could see some of Uncle Walt’s reminiscences.

    I was worried for a minute.

    I’m with Susan Newman regarding Slim and his worthless relatives. And, like pscheerer & Ray Toler, I too would like to see some of Walt’s recollections involving some of the old characters of this strip.

    Old cartoons never die. They prolong as long as the public wants them…

    re: Kab Buch

    That knowing that a person is going to heaven is the difference between the passing of a person saved by Christ and someone who isn’t.
    .
    The First Century Christians celebrated a Christian’s passing because he/she had gone to heaven. Given that Nero killed several million Christians via spear, arrow, crucifixion, torchings, etc., life wasn’t good for many of them.
    .
    It’s understandable why some celtic believers had a wild party for the departed. If he/she was a believer, it was something to celebrate.
