    PHANTOM: @ woodworker – that’s my question too… “for what purpose?” I have no idea what P. is up to – what his motivation might be.
    MARK TRAIL: Very sad. A lot of nice artwork in this Africa story…and I’m hoping for a happy ending.
    CRANKSHAFT: A code violation usually results in a fine, not a criminal trial. I am confused. If the court case is about damages to neighboring properties, that would be a civil case. I’m having trouble suspending my disbelief.

    PHANTOM: @ woodworker – good question!
    MARK TRAIL: We know that Chris (“Dirty”) has a gambling problem & debt and that he has some kind of deal cooking that involves a shipment (7/9). And we know that the conservationist, Jacob Hickman, was working with rhinos and has mysteriously disappeared. I am guessing “Dirty’s” deal involves poaching – maybe rhino horns. And I still think we will found out what happened to Jacob before this story ends.
    MARY WORTH: I hope Mary will exercise some good sense and call Dr. Jeff…hopefully before next Monday.
    CRANKSHAFT: Apparently Cranky is guilty of the same crime (but C. got away with it). As someone commented at CK, “Oh, what hilarity.”

    I can’t get into jsonline.com today, although the strips are available at other CK locations. Can others get into jsonline – or is it just me?

    CRANKSHAFT: This appears to be a criminal trial (a civil trial for damages wouldn’t have a defense attorney and wouldn’t have a “not guilty” plea). It appears the defendant started a bonfire in his yard to burn some documents, so it seems to me that a fine imposed by the jurisdiction would have been sufficient. What is the defendant on trial for? The charge? The penalty (if found guilty)? A civil trial over money (damages) for the affected neighbors would make more sense to me. But as far as I know, you can’t mix the two in actions in court (criminal/civil) and the burden of proof is higher in a criminal action. I’m not a lawyer, so would like to hear some other comments re this.
    Meanwhile, Cranky seems to be having the time of his life.

    JUDGE PARKER: Thanks JanCinLV! Ned’s comment seemed to hit a wrong note when I first read it early this a.m. Didn’t have time to check the CK comments, but will take a look later.

    PHANTOM: For the life of me, I cannot figure out why P. & the prez. are going to enter Chatu’s cage.
    MARK TRAIL: @ woodworker – Mark’s…has moved? Did you leave out a word?
    FUNKY W: Yea!!! We’re back in Hollywood with Les!
    CRANKSHAFT: Looks like there are 11 angry jurors. If Cranky holds his ground, this could be interesting.
    MARY WORTH: After Mary rescues Olive from the pool, I hope her next move will be to call Dr. Jeff.
    JUDGE PARKER: I’m not sure what I think about Ned’s idea in panel 2………………anyone have a thought/comment?

    I used to be able to dive (nothing fancy…sort of like Mary’s dive today). However, I am now out of practice. It’s hard to stay “in practice” when all the condo & public pools are “No Diving.” Here in my area only swim team members have access to diving at the community pools. Do you think Roger is in his own backyard pool (FTE above)?

    FOXTROT: Is Roger on a diving board in a backyard pool?
    MARK TRAIL: Call the Grammar Police! (Last Panel…anything that can be counted should be “fewer” rather than “less.”)

    MARY WORTH: I hope Mary is diving into the deep end of the swimming pool. Years ago condo pools here in So. Fla. had diving boards, but due to liability issues they have long since been removed and replaced with “No Diving” signs all around the pool.

    PHANTOM: What does P. think is going to happen?
    REX MORGAN: Has Kelly outgrown Niki?
    MARK TRAIL: Will Mark save Chris?
    MARY WORTH: Will Mary save Olive?
    CRANKSHAFT: Will Cranky be held in contempt of Court?
