    When I was 25 I used to get grumpy at the office about the moronic clients we had to deal with, so I was nicknamed “the 85 year old man.”
    30+ years later, I’ve mellowed — I don’t act a day over 80.

    In Tucson, school let out on May 25… and it starts up again the first week of August. So all these “last week of school” and “first week of school” strips seem around a month late.

    Congress-Man has been the subject of Non Sequiter comics for the past week.

    Why should the college president care if they drop out at this point? It’s not like they’d be due a refund.

    For some reason they think the square at the left is a meaningless “title” so they can drop it.

    But for some strips GoComics does include a truly meaningless title. For example:

    With Frazz, it often helps explain the joke. But I only get to see it if I get a Sunday newspaper.

    About the only time I’ve ever seen Bucky trying to be nice.

    When my son was about 5, the doctor gave him a vision test. For little kids, it was a bunch of little pictures — a crescent moon, a pine tree, a house, a sailboat, etc. He got about half the symbols right.

    I told the doctor, “Why not use the letters — he’s never seen a sailboat in his life.” (We live in the middle of the desert in Arizona.) So she turned the chart over and he got everything right.

    Last week a few kids(at the school I work at) were arguing about the best superheroes. Spiderman, Superman, Batman, etc. One boy asked me who my favorite superhero was, and I told them Bugs Bunny. They didn’t get it, probably thinking about that abomination “Baby Bugs.”

    I’ve been voting against my senator for years (3 times so far), going to do it again in November. But he refuses to go away.

    Bill Watterson only drew the strip for 10 years, I think it was 1985-1995 or so. Everything since then is reruns.
    .
    I don’t know the schedule GoComics uses for when they publish the reruns, whether they copy the rerun schedule used 20+ years ago (when Watterson took a break) or they are just making it up as they go.
