    As a carryover from yesterday’s strip, about the only way Jim can handle the ever aging characters is to take the route that Lynn Johnston took with “For Better or Worse” and retro age the characters about 30 years, freeze the aging process and bring back some of the long lost characters that were more familiar than the boorish current ones. Any other ideas or are we pretty much okay with the status quo?

    I would like Uncle Walt’s wife to come back from the dead.

    That’s one way of avoiding the draft.

    It it wasn’t for malapropisms, these two guys’d barely be able to string a single sentence together.

    That letter must have been lost in the mail for 40-some years.

    Last I heard, Uncle Walt is alive and well and living in GA.

    It’s a letter from the Daft-board.

    Johnston did not retro “For Better or Worse”, she stopped the strip and the strip being run currently is a rerun (similar to Peanuts).

    Isn’t there a web site that tells the last time a GA character appeared? It seems like I came across this one time.

    However Lynn Jonson did do some fill in strips missing action in the original run.
    -
    Id like it if he would concentrate on some other characters or create some of his own. I’d be fine with that.

    Since there is no draft formally. Only if you are without work and on your last legs you can sign up for the Depression draft.

    I think the only two characters that I would consider to be “boorsih” are the two freeloading bunco artists we just got finished with. Other than that, I like the strip the way it is. Although I am fond of Uncle Walt, I would hate to see this strip turned into “all Walt, all the time” like some of the posters would lead me to believe.
