    It is also important to be on the lookout for scamsters, just as there are civil rights groups who talk nonstop about “racists under the bed” and demand donations (and keep a major portion of the money for personal benefit), there are those out on the street whose breath stinks of alcohol or are begging in order to get money for the strip club. A common scam is to approach people saying they need “gas money to get home”. Don’t fall for this one. Those who are really out of gas would contact friends or family for a ride home or to wire them cash if they are away, NEVER asking total strangers.

    Calvin & Hobbes is an American strip, just like Garfield and Peanuts. Ergo, it only matters that happy Thanksgiving is said. There are a couple of comic strips from Canada, which is the 51st State.

    Remember when rioters threatened to kill Catholics when John Gotti had bribed a jury? Can’t remember? Oh yeah, maybe because people didn’t accuse all the Catholics of being responsible for the misdeeds of one.

    When FDR decided it was a crime to for your family tree to have Japanese, German or Italian members, he did not o to Congress. He signed Executive Order 66 and Americans were off to concentration camps.

    Smart move on Lynn’s part. She knows that adultery, child molestation, devil worship, homosexuality and other vulgarities have no place whatsoever in family strips. Doing so would cause her to lose busloads of loyal fans.

    Elly’s insecurity as a mother does mirror Lynn Johnston’s. In an interview with her son, he recalled that when his true father ran off one day, his mother took it hard, in comparison to his maternal grandparents from the World War 2 generation who sailed through rough waters and were rewarded. The nuclear family environment in 1950s prosperity Lynn grew up in as a kid came crashin down when her husband did his impersonation of Obama’s deadbeat dad. As a result, she became overprotective of her son to the extent that if he stubbed his toe, she would cry. To be fair to Lynn, her situation is not unique, nor is her outlook. I have seen that with women in the Northern United States. New England seems to have this outlook that “things should be how they should be”, which is largely due to being spoiled from never been ruined by war, unlike the Southern United States which was devastated (think of Atlanta burning down). I have preferred dating girls from the South as they are emotionally stronger than those from the North, not to mention prettier!

    Warning to Michael: Christmas is apprproaching fast. Unless you are fine with a lump of coal, recommend you abide by the 10 Commandments, especially “Honor your mother and father”.

    Is the public library still in use today? Whenever I go all I see is netsurfing, girls reading Seventeen or aging hipsters too cheap to get their own subscription to Utne reader. It is rare to see a kid checking out a copy of Moby Dick or Treasure Island.
