    Ahh….the truth does hurt a little, doesn’t it, pal? Being on your own has its advantages (do the dishes when you feel like it, set your own schedule) but the evenings can get so lonely……………………………………………………………..

    Hot dogs and beans, one of my favorite meals.

    OMG! Is Phil going to adopt Sluggo?! Then if Phil marries Fritzi, Sluggo and Nancy would live in the same house (presumably)—ah, no. Cute when they’re eight, not so cute when they’re in their teens. I know they’ll never reach their teens, given how time fails to pass in Nancyville, but Phil and Fritzi should be thinking of the kids’ futures nevertheless.

    Regardless, it’s lovely to see an adult showing Sluggo some attention and concern. I like Phil—the friendship between them is one of the nicest things about Phil having reappeared.

    Buddy Sorell once asked to be arrested when he heard the jail inmates were getting franks and beans for lunch.

    No telling what’s in those hot dogs. Probably some pork trimmings and other unidentified mystery meat.

    Guy, this better have a happy ending. I have been sad all week with the story of Sluggo. I know it’s only pen and paper, but Nancy, Fritz and Sluggo has been with me for a long time now. Thank you for the story line about Sluggo. Always wanted to know about him.

    Sluggo is only about 8 years old at the most! Legally he can not live alone without an adult until he turns 18! Someone has got to call hold services and get him into a foster home!!!!

    Today, many children are on their own because their parent has gone looking for a crack hit, or is shooting up in a legal injection site, designed to keep those employed in the million dollar drug counciling industry

    Children supported by parents today, often abandon them because the child welfare industry in more interested in keeping their jobs. As a result, any child that comes e.g. shabbily dressed to school can be reported and have the child care workers on their backs, when they should be thanking the parents for at least clothing the child.

    Not the least on how many children are suspended and sent home today for the most frivilous of actions like drawing a gun in arts class

    There are such things as kosher hot dogs.

    I’m with you, let’s drop by Sluggo’s for a great meal. You bring the fries, I’ll bring the soda.

    But beans aren’t kosher for Passover.
    Bob, reminds me of a Groucho joke: “Dear Editor, I read your paper religiously. That is, I read it with my hat on.”

    Beans, peas, peanuts, corn, all things that can be ground into something that looks like flour.
