    what if the bureaucrat wasn’t in his right mind? in fact, what if HE was the murderer and used the flu as his alibi?

    Then this strip would be interesting.

    It’s ridiculous that the killer would set up his alibi without s=checking days. After all, the bureaucrat’s secretary would have been the first person Danger would have gone to to confirm the story, right?

    I’ve read this strip twice. Both times others have also noted the flagrant flaws in the reasoning.The only thing that’s dangerous about this strip’s lead character is if the writer is a working policeman applying his daily work skills to him. I won’t be back again.

    1. How can a computer be stuck on a particular date? I can buy the newspaper and calendar, but not that.

    2. How did it take so long for someone to notice the guy was dead? I deliver newspapers, and one of the first things we’re told to do is watch out for houses where there appear to be multiple unopened newspapers; that means no one’s picking them up. Once spotting such a house, distribution needs to be contacted so that they can contact the homeowner. If that was a daily paper, the jig would have been up by the 8th.

    Even though he was dead, he still had a lot of inFLUence

    So … what year did he die?

    Oh, to the person who said computers change, not if you were reading email and hadn’t hit refresh. Although they do tend to reboot from power failures after a few years.

    And many people are not located until months later, when the stink alerts the neighbors.

    The computer date and time clue is distracting, although I guess you could stretch it and say you looked at his web history and saw the last time a page was visited was on Aug 1.

    The suspect’s mom did not call. The secretary of the murder victim tried to cal the suspect.

    I thought this puzzle was creative. The reference to Friday the 13th and public workers were good clues.

    I think people sometimes expect too much from this comic strip. It has limited space to present the scenario with enough information to point to what happened and who did the crime. You are not going to get Sherlock Holmes in 6-8 panels of a comic strip.

    The inspector says it’s friday the 13th, but doesn’t say which month. If it were friday the 13th of Sept, then Aug 1st would have been a Monday.
    And why do they label the scene as a Murder? You’re a detective and you haven’t even been to the scene yet? And how is it that a calendar, a computer and a newspaper are ‘Proof’ that he died on Aug 1st?

    BINGO! That’s exactly the whole point of this comic strip.

    I’m confused… why would the computer still show Aug 1 when days have passed?
