    TJ will have his own farfetched ideas which somehow will, against all logic, common sense and laws of physics, save the day. Depend on it.
    On another note, just as I predicted, Evans has dropped the political angle like a hot potato. Nobody’s going “Oh how unfair this is. Let’s go to the union, or protest at the injustice being done to essential services.”

    Aww..can’t he have like, one month’s grace on the house? He might be able to find a job quickly..he’s a hard worker and I bet he’ll get a good reference. (oh yeah, lousy job market, I forgot..grrrr.)

    How many bathrooms in Frank and Nancy’s house?

    Frank and Nancy aren’t rich. I’m sure that, like most people, they took out a loan to buy that house.
    With no rent coming in, they probably can’t make the mortgage payments.
    And if Greg wanted to get super realistic, it could come up that in today’s market, they can’t sell it, cos they owe more than they could get.
    A steady tenant is the only hope for a LOT of people who bought California investment property.
    It doesn’t mean they don’t care about Brad – they’re offering him room in their own house.

    Offering him room in their house will offer Evans opportunity for more walking-in-on-Nancy gags and back porch heart-to-heart talks with TJ. In other words, slapstick “humour”.

    B the B — true, but the strip’s popularity was built on the juxtaposition of silly humor and teen angst.
    Perhaps to lighten the seriousness of the current job loss and budding adult relationships arcs, it’ll simultaneously take a nostalgic side trip into its roots.

    (Going “political” here for a one-liner…)

    I DON’T think THIS was the “Change” that we were promised in 2008!

    Isn’t TJ wealthy? Don’t you think he could come up with the total rent ’til Brad gets back on his feet or the department re-hires him?

    Well as long as she is kicking Brad out of his home, I guess that where he moves is up to him. Obviously, Nancy is expecting Brad to be unemployed for a long time. Otherwise, she would not bother to find a short term renter to take his place.

    And since when does a captain do the firing or laying off at the FD? In 16 years as such, I never did it. That’s the chief’s job, but the decision to do it usually comes from even higher up.

    Wait, Wait, WAIT!
    Does ANYONE other Nancy have a Say-So in this House? Why does Brad have to move in with his parents? Remember, Toni once offered Brad the chance to stay with her. Why does TJ have to move? He at least STILL has his “invisible” means of support. In FACT, WHY does Brad have to move at all? I mean, he’ll be staying at his parents for free, so why can’t he stay at the Horner House for free til get he, no doubt, gets that stupid job at Weenie World?
    (Sigh) This is getting TOO much! I NEED Coffee…..,

    I fail to see how this can be considered Evans “going political” when Brad loses his job over budget cutbacks
    The economy sucks, and there are political reasons for it
    However, if you are seeing politics in the strip as it is written here it seems to me you are reading it in because of your own political bias.
    There seems to be a chemical imbalance in some people that causes them to obsess about politics and assume everyone else does
    This imbalance apparently causes them to feel the need to share their opinions about politics with random strangers who could not really care less
    It’s OK, I’ve seen this particular mental disorder all over the message boards, we are fervently hoping someone is working on a cure.

    Brad moves back home; TJ takes off for Argentina to find his long-lost family; Toni dumps Brad for the garbage man, who returns to rent the Horner House…. We all send hate mail to Greg Evans.

    Hey, if both Brad and TJ end up moving into Casa DeGroot, at least TJ can keep them well-fed! :-) Or maybe moving in with Toni is an option….
