OK… left home on her own… and the friend comes over… “let’s eat!” means warming up a etoufee…presumably at the kitchen stove… likely a gas range… and “going out in a BLASE of glory” pops up in conversation… TWICE… can anyone say “FORESHADOWING”?

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.” — G. K. Chesterton
Lemont, as a writer, should perhaps already know, that there IS a way to comfort a frightened child with a Greater Truth. It would be nice if no little boy went to bed worried about the monsters in the word. But if he is going to be frightened, I think it better that he should think of giants and dragons, than of bombers and terrorists. For in the fairy tales, side by side with the terrible figures, we find the righteous comforters and protectors, the radiant ones that negate the evil monsters. So I would suggest that Jesus Christ or St. George, Aslan or Gandolf, are better comforters to a child’s mind than the frightening images and proof texts of evil in the world.(or the idea of government presidents, military and police and what have you as our sole protection and rescue.)
Lemont might also remember the maxim of the law…[qui tacet consentire] “Silence gives consent” By NOT saying ANYTHING to address his son’s fears, he is giving consent for his son to BE afraid.

Look, Mark. I get the rant. I really do. But you are dealing with NEWSPAPERS… Half your audience doesn’t even know what those ARE, (or care.) PRINT is deader than Elvis. And only old mummies and fossils still read them. Hence they HAVE to cater to their dying out base. My goodness. They would much rather read OLD Peanuts, Pogo and Nancy than ANYTHING innovative and current like Your strip and others on the net. You’re just going to have to accept that. <3 <3 :-D
Let’s see… according to Lamont: Households can EARN more income,,,, Equates to … The Government can TAKE / STEAL more revenues??? Yeah… makes sense. (NOT)
