    OK, Maria, do you want to hear my Grandma’s story about how “the starving children in Africa” would LOVE to have the food you won’t eat?

    She’s eating it. It’s just someone forgot to tenderize thje steak before grilling it.

    From watching the Food Network I know a lot can be done to a tough steak to tenderize it. The steak can be marinated, pounded with a mallet and probably some other things. In the old days they put some chemical on it. The joke in our town was the meat tenderizer flavoring the Ponderosa Steakhouse steaks.

    My Grandma used that speech for ANY complaints at dinner. It was to convince us to eat anything with no complaining, or announcements of any particular likes/dislikes.

    I really like this strip. It reminds me of Mel Lazurus’s strip, “Ms. Peach.” Maria reminds me of all of the little kid at the Kelly school. I also enjoy it when Maria gets even with Sue. Sue reminds me of Marcia from “Ms Peach,” but I never seen Marcia pay her dues. The only character that “paid” was Ira, I think.

    We were both partly influenced by MISS PEACH. It was certainly a favorite of mine. Oddly, though, I push to avoid having the kids in MARIA’S DAY talk like adults. I want them to have their own rhythm, and one closer to the way kids really do think and speak.

    I always liked Arthur- one of the great dimwits of the comics.

    And yet if you offer to send them what’s on your plate, boy do you get in trouble!
