    Jeez, I thought those guys had just made the concept up. It’s real, and you’re right, it is a junk concept. It belongs in the same dustbin as “a rising tide lifts all boats.”

    Obama will do nothing? Dubya’s press secretary said, in 2003, “The president no longer thinks much about Osama bin Laden.” Mitt Romney said, in 2008, “I don’t see the point of spending billions of dollars and moving heaven and earth to find one guy.” Obama, when he became president, said, “Find bin Laden.” When they found him, he said, “Kill him.” That’s doing nothing? You conservatives are rather fact-free.

    Oh please. Reagan sold weapons to terrorists and he’s a hero, Dubya ignored bin Laden and didn’t hunt him down after 9/11 and he’s a hero. Obama kills bin Laden and he’s a friend to terrorists. McCoy’s a good cartoonist in that his visual style is state of the art and he handles the language of cartooning well, but his political views are trivially absurd.

    I agree, Ted. I’ve made part of my living in the arts. When young artists ask me how to make it, I tell them, “Go to truck driver school.”

    I have to say, if I was asked to get on that plane, I wouldn’t have just questioned it like Jane. I would have wanted to see the plane’s latest inspection report. Four people in an old tail dragger, and some of the people being dodgy at best? Stop and think.

    I went through college on the GI bill. I wouldn’t have been able to do it otherwise. Was that “free money from the government”? And what about public school? Isn’t that “free education from the government”? You hate that too, man? Conservatives generally do. Screw you, Glenn.

    After college, where I was a popular cartoonist, I move to Iceland (pop. 225,000) and got a job as a political cartoonist. Four years later I moved back to America. Nothing.

    The blond girl was Patty. Not to be confused with Peppermint Patty; this one was retired before she came along.

    It’s interesting that the early strip had none of the complex interrelationships of complex characters that developed later on. The early strip leaned heavily on the other children’s contempt for, and violence against, Charlie Brown. Apparently Charlie Schulz had a lot of anger and frustration left over from his childhood that had to be worked out first.
