    I agree with JW Kennedy. The cop is being pedantic – and the statement in the last panel is more sarcastic than ironic.

    Right on, sister.

    Amusing sexist portrayal of women – very revealing of the times. Would anyone go on a long jungle trek, riding an elephant, wearing a dress? :-)

    Have they stopped using metal bats in HS baseball? Shouldn’t the sound be “PING”? (I’ve never gotten used to that sound – only a wooden bat “sounds right” to my old ears.)

    Two-tone lips AND a case of EES in panel two. Doesn’t look good………

    Good grief. Nasty union stereotyping that hasn’t had any basis in reality for about 99% of unionists for about 50 years.

    I’m sorry, but I genuinely don’t understand why you’re so upset. How has the re-running of strips that you enjoy spoiled them for you? I’m not trying to be dismissive of your feelings, but I really don’t get it.
    (What are TL:DR types?)

    How about CEOs earn no more than 20 times the lowest paid employee? That would still let them live pretty high on the hog and would surely still be sufficient incentive to encourage people to aspire to climb the employment ladder if they wished to.

    I know tips were discussed yesterday, but………We don’t go out to eat very often, but when we do the wait staff are sometimes former or current students of mine. I know they’re trying to earn some extra money or trying to keep themselves going while they attend university, so I always tip even if the service is only average. Those of us fortunate enough to be in full time employment should help those who aren’t.

    Looks like a yummy bowl of snot in panel one. I’ve had some strange and delicious dishes in Asian restaurants, but not that.
