    And if it weren’t for the magnifier, I wouldn’t have been able to get the joke. SOME of us don’t have the eyes that we had 20 or 30 years ago, Pastis!

    Stephan PLEASE don’t give the Press Democrat any ideas about more ways they can scrunch the comics.


    If they find out they can shrink them vertically and squeeze the two columns into one, they’ll do it.


    In any event, there won’t be an empty white space for notes….
    if the paper doesn’t cram another comic into it, Rat will sell it to advertisers.

    Sadly, Susan is absolutely correct. White space has been a no-no since the demise of the NY Herald-Tribune, back at the early stage of the modern decline of newspapers. It simply would not be allowed in the shrivelled, way-downsized, money-losing, barely surviving paper press of today.
    Besides, Cartoon-Pastis, although the anonymous scribbler’s comment was incorrect, scrunched cartoons are too hard to read or to appreciate visually. Blow ’em up, big! Bigger!

    Funy thing is I’ve already seen newspapers that do this with other strips. You think at first it’s the way the strip is done, until you open another paper or go online and see the strip is supposed to be larger. Imagine the folks having to get out magnifying glasses after these papers shrink today’s strip.

    sigh….
    I never had “the eyes I used to have” in the first place…

    So now one of the best moments of my day was nearly ruined by a stupid idea. Tiny print + aging eyes = morning headache. !@#$%^&!

    @SusanSunshine

    So true…the limited “farsightedness” of aging eyes hasn’t helped me much, either, it just means I can’t find glasses to help the midrange, even with varifocals. Wore glasses since first grade, which is when they found out why I was such a “good” toddler…I couldn’t see well enough to run around without running into stuff, so I stayed put. Mom thought I would never learn to walk.
