    The question is, what percentage of the United States population doesn’t get the joke in that statistic?

    Unlike truth, fiction generally needs to be understandable and to seem to make sense. Truth doesn’t care whether we believe it or not. (Did the universe start as a tiny point? I don’t know, but much of what we now accept to be true did not seem plausible when it was first proposed.)

    From Global Greenhouse Warming:

    The IPCC, Fourth Report released in 2007 stated that, multiple lines of evidence confirms that the post-industrial rise in greenhouse gases does not stem from natural mechanisms. In other words this is anthropogenic climate change, and the significant increases in the atmosphere of these potent greenhouse gases are a result of human activity.

    I live near downtown in Calgary (population over a million), and we sometimes get coyotes here – they come in along the river to a undeveloped hill area near where I live. Once I saw one at dusk, running confidently along a street in the neighbourhood. We have had a lot of rabbits, which are probably easier targets than cats, but the numbers seem to have dropped. We also have jackrabbits, but those are pretty fast.

    I wouldn’t under-estimate BB’s ability to do other cartoonists’ characters. Some of his occasional regulars are dead-ringers for George Booth characters.

    In university, I had one professor who gave open-book exams, where we could bring all our notes. The only catch was that the exam was long and little time was given, so there really was no time to make use of our notes. He also gave one (also open-book) that had three large groups of questions from which we got to choose two groups of questions to do. Before we started the exam, he “apologized” for the fact that he was only able to give us an hour for a two-hour exam. Anyone who actually read all the questions before choosing two groups were very unlikely to have time to answer them, and most people were unable to complete the exam.

    Actually, it seems like members of the military (even or perhaps especially top command) are much less inclined to get us into wars than non-military leaders (lawyers or not). The military doesn’t actually benefit much from war, unlike the so-called military complex, consisting mainly of companies supplying military needs, which evidentally has considerable lobbying power.

    “Crushes” are not uncommon in prepubescent boys and girls (and not necessarily just at about six years). I experienced this (in both directions) at various ages from 4 through 12. I can’t remember feeling anything quite like what Hobbes describes, but I certainly was very shy about it.

    Well, I suppose he could be regarded as an anchor baby of Canada, giving him the convenience of being able to move here without special permission and take advantage of our government health-care coverage, for instance, EXCEPT that he has renounced his Canadian citizenship, so he isn’t actually Canadian anymore. On the other hand, he really does sound like a very unpleasant person.

    It sounds more like he’s expecting to be a BIG rat. (Oh wait, maybe that is the pointy-haired boss.)
