    This is pretty realistic when one thinks about the quality of most community college programs, as @sbischof mentioned.

    Greg has been doing this strip for just 10 days over 30 years – it just occurred to me and I missed the anniversary, darnit – and in all that time he has never been afraid to address the difficult issues. Life, or at least first-world life, really happens in this little sub-universe, and yet – because the God of This World strikes me as a good and decent person, and because he has his hands on the lives of his creatures, I trust that every challenge, every twist of fate, every hardship will ultimately work out well in the end for the DeGroot family and those of good will who surround them.

    And you think Charlie Brown had reason to despair!

    I, too, am torn by this art teacher. One part of art is technique. It needs to be learned – the light and shadow, the perspective, the color – (speaking of the graphic arts, not sculpture or other areas which have their own essentials) – these are the building blocks. Over time, anyone can learn these and improve their skills.

    The other part is learning to reach inside oneself and bring out the passion and feeling that goes into creating art which is not only aesthetically pleasing but which has meaning for the artist and for the viewer. These are more difficult to teach and to learn. (Things that are deliberately unpleasant can still be “good art,” but that’s a “whole ’nother subject.”)

    If Zebo is trying to get this lesson across, he gets points in the plus column, but I question his methods. Cruelty or emotional abuse is never the right way to teach a lesson. From what I’ve seen so far, he could swing either way. His physical manifestation as Greg has drawn him tends to push him toward the shallow and pretentious side, but under the foppish exterior he could have a sincere heart that no one sees yet.

    Time will tell.

    Being self-reliant is good. But life is much more pleasant when we can all lift one another to a higher level. No man is an island.

    God made the mountains
    God made the sky
    God made the people
    God knows why!

    He fixed up the planet
    As best as he could,
    Then in came the people
    And gummed it up good!

    Ouch, dude. that’s harsh. On the other hand, I know nothing of art. On the gripping hand, art isn’t really being taught here – this guy is a pretentious, effete attention-whore.

    It’s all related. Aliens stole my V-slicer, and now I have to cut radishes by hand.
