    This better be good. I really like the Luann strip, but this character is one of the WORST ever. Hope the story line is a very short one.

    Nope. There are 6 corporations that own 90% of the news outlets in the U.S. Of these, the holdings of 4 of them include CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS—not exactly what you’d call conservative outfits. Source? It’s out there. Legit. Go look for it, like I did. And have a nice day.

    I’m really interested to see how this story line goes…and that’s probably because I had both my hips replaced the year before last. (And no ,dummy, not at the same time!) The first was in January and the second was in June. Some pain, to be sure, but manageable. LOTS of rehab weekly in a clinic and at home every day. Learned how to be patient big time. Results: no pain, walking 100% normally, no back pain, and the scars are barely visible. If you need the surgery, GET IT. Also: you will need to use a walker for awhile, but when you are told you can use a cane, go get a hiking stick at a sporting goods store instead—and one that is TALL enough for you to extend your arm straight out to grab it. That will keep your back upright and pain-free while you walk. (Just watch anyone with a typical cane and note how they’re always bending over—not good!) Takes about 4-6 months of rehab to really get close to normal and a full year to 100%. Oh, and by the way—-don’t plan on competing in any marathons for awhile. Or work as a greeter at Wal-Mart.

    Hmmmm..that’s not what I’ve found. Most meat eaters I’ve encountered do not feel they have to be defensive about their food preferences. I should know, because I’m one of them. I used to hate vegans but had a realization that changed my mind. Now I smile sincerely whenever I’m introduced to one….because that means an extra 200+ Big Macs for ME!

    I’ve always thought Gunther was a bit of a wuss, but throughout it all, his friends remained his friends and put up with him—a sign that he might be immature, but not necessarily an idiot. Obviously, his view of life (thanks to a too-protective mother) and straight-laced view of things do not contribute to being one of the “cool” kids. His relationship with Rosa and his bold move to Peru showed that he had more nerve than anyone might have thought. His decision to break it off and return home was not dumb, but based on reality…and that shows maturity no one expected. This bus detour story line is just a silly, fun one. A lot worse things have happened to people who wake up after passing out from too much booze!

    Saw it coming way back when. But it’s strangely refreshing to hear Gunther verbalize the truth he had inside. Almost makes him seem more matue than the geeky kid we was last year. Nice sub-story.

    I’m a pretty peaceful meat eater myself. Take away my Big Mac and you’re in for some serious mayhem.

    Why do I feel so pleased, having seen this coming after the first few hints were dropped a month or so ago? I’m betting that we’ll see neither an “old” Gunter or a totally “new” one. but a more mature and realistic one who split with Rosa when he was hit by a reality check that caused him to make a choice that best suited him, in spite of saying goodbye to her. True love? I didn’t see it ever really bloom. And the early days at the clinic didn’t exactly set up for a satisfying life for either/both of them. Gota love dem looong story arcs, eh?

    AMEN! And the vegan cyclists are the WORST!

    What a compelling story line! If Gunther is true to himself. confirms that his destiny does not lie in the jungle and splits up with Rosa to return home, it will be a phenomenal serious edge to a usually funny, less than serious strip. Can’t wait for the outcome!
