    Ford’s Theater, no doubt …

    Could it be the road show of “Our American Cousin”?

    Usually I LOVE Jump Start, but …Is this a reference to Lincoln’s murder? The suggestion of killing Obama, even though it came from a racist white character, seems wrong to me. Ted Rall did it today too.

    It that is the meaning then I am against it. But that hasn’t been shown, just loose speculation by other commentators.

    I’m hoping it was not refering to Lincoln’s assination at Ford Theater. This not a tender funny view of a suggestion to murder Obama. There is enough violence in this world to suggest it in a so call family comic strip.

    I’m against such threats against anyone including the president which is a crime. And also a 400% rise in threats against President Obama over his predecessor Pres. GWBush.

    @Ice Cold Troll

    And you can bet the the police, FBI and Secret Service took all threats carefully.

    Maybe he was just calling them to invite them to the theater to see a play or a movie! I’m really hoping that is the case and not in reference to Lincoln’s…or anyone’s..assassination!

    To all my readers who have speculated on a sudden dark twist in JumpStart, ….uh…no. This strip isn’t intended to be about Lincoln…or assassination….or death threats against Obama…just a theater-lover inviting his son-in law out to enjoy the performing arts. Wow, guys…WOW!

    I’ve been misunderstood before, in life, and as a cartoonist..and I accept it with as much grace as possible. All artists are misunderstood in some way..but this threw me. I’m shaking my head in utter disbelief. The reader who first mentioned Ford Theater really ushered folk down a strange path of wild speculation.

    [Year long tally: 28 Nonsensical : 252 Realistic] Thank you Robb for today’s realistic and funny comic!! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I admit reading this comic initially when first presented…. and the comments were really steering people down that path. I am very glad that erroneous path was put to rest! I did not comment earlier because I have been so utterly out of time with work issues right now that I haven’t had the opportunity until today.
