    one of those, there professors who taught me things in college said that “Play is the Work of the child.” Reflecting back on my formative years, when we played whatever sport was in season, ate unshelled peanuts and looked at clouds, sat in trees for hours on end and roamed the woods any time we had a few extra minutes, I’d say that the prof was right. Somehow, I ended up with my own mutated Puritan work ethic and also derived a skewed form of scheduling my kid’s activities. The world is different from the time that Watterson, and many of us engaged in our “work,” but I found that it is possible to facilitate kids exploration of the world without living vicariously through their activities.

    This strip originally appeared on 3/9/94. If you go to the Calvin and Hobbes search engine (google it), you can read the entire story arc. I found the story to be classic Watterson. I doubt that any kid old enough to read the comic section in 1994 would have been scarred by the experience. Heck, I’d be more concerned by what currently passes for television content.

    Looking at the artwork made me think of mid 1950’s vintage Cadillac bumpers

    I’ve been reading the Calvin and Hobbes strips from the beginning and in the early strips, Calvin’s TV rested firmly on the stand. I am curious about when the TV started jumping around.

    Well Morrow, I figure that NPR is at least as good a source as Fox. At least I have sources to back up my opinions.

    that said, This is about Dick Tracy and not fracking so I am done with my comments about the business practices of drilling companies. At least on Go Comics :)

    I wanted to respond to those who did not care for my comment yesterday. I did not say whether or not I favored the fracking process nor did I comment on the safety of the process. In fact, I agree with those stating that the EPA hasn’t found problems with the fracking process itself. There are, of course other issues that are involved with the process that still need to be considered: like what to do with used fracking fluids for example. Morrow, contrary to what you believe I DO have a good understanding of the process.
    My comments yesterday were based on 2 reports that were broadcast on NPR All things considered on July 29. Here are the links:

    Well, the standard operating practice for these drilling companies seems to be to hire lots of lawyers to sue landowners for imminent domain seizure and then bankrupt the land owner in legal proceedings if they try to fight the frackers. Oh, and then when the landowners sign the contracts, the drillers frequently welch on their royalty payments. Right, Chesapeake Energy?

    This poem was exactly what I thought of after reading today’s strip. Thanks for posting.

    these days, many of the tall metal slides are being replaced with shorter “tube” slides. There is too much concern that kids’ll fall off or else have to experience a hot seat like Calvin…..
