    I’m almost thinking that Stantis is trying to figure out what to do next. If Hillary had won, he probably had 4 years of Hunny Bunny as Prez jokes already lined up. Instead, he was probably just as surprised as anyone and now has to figure out where the strip goes.

    The problem for Stantis is that the current state of the Trump campaign and it’s retaliatory “strategy” can’t really be discussed on the Funnies page.

    The catch is that they are running as Libertarians.

    Uh, lifestyle they are accustomed to? OK, that’s completely bogus. They wouldn’t need the Foundation for that. Their speaking fees alone pay them handsomely. Heck, why do you think that Mike Huckabee stays on the motivational speaking circuit? Speaking fees are worth big bucks if you are in demand.

    That probably hurt. Sand pails were metal back in the ’50’s.

    I’m sorry you feel that way but it doesn’t change the events of the evening. I’m 51 and has been driving nearly as long as you have. The incident had a witness (my wife). What about the fact that I was driving a new luxury car, dressed in a business suit and was asked to identify my destination and who lived there? I could have easily been a homeowner in this town but instead I was visiting family. My wife grew up in this town and was going to walk to city hall the next day to ask for a formal explanation and possible ask for the officer’s head. I was the one who talked her out of it since I didn’t want to make a stink for something that sadly happens all to often. I suppose that telling you that I’m an Ivy league educated technology executive wouldn’t sway you. Or that similar events have happened before to me over the previous decades while driving in nice, nearly all white neighborhoods in my home city. I just used that example since it was the most obvious and there was a witness.

    Again, it’s easy to discount these things since they don’t happen to you. But the more we talk about these incidents, maybe we might get some progress. Looking back, the greatest gift my retired-cop uncle (my father’s brother) ever did for me was doing my version of “the talk” that black families often give their black children, especially their sons. I know that it has saved me from extreme misunderstandings in the past. My “talk” shouldn’t have to be about “driving while black” but that’s the lesson I got in 1980 and it has served me well.

    It’s all about perspective. And if you’re white, it probably hasn’t happened to you.

    A story if I may…years ago my wife and I were visiting her parents outside of Boston who live in a very nice town. It was our wedding anniversary and we dressed up for the occasion…I was in a suit and cashmere topcoat, my wife wore a lovely dress and topcoat and we were driving an Avis-rented Volvo wagon. On the way back from Boston to her parents’ home around midnight, we were driving through her town and passed a cop on the side of the road. I wasn’t speeding but he flashed a light into our windshield. After we passed he turned on his lights and pulled us over.

    As my uncle who is a retired cop taught me, I rolled down all my windows front and rear, turned on all lights including road hazard lights, put my hands on the steering wheel and engaged the officer. Again, I hadn’t been speeding nor drinking. I’m black, my wife and the officer are both white. He took my driver’s license to run it (with no probably cause) and when he came back, he wouldn’t end the stop without me telling him the address of the house I was going and who lived there. My wife was absolutely furious and got to see up close what has happened to me without her being there multiple times over my life.

    Again, it’s all about perspective.

    I began reading “Miss Peach” in the early 70s as a kid and “Momma” soon after.

    Although “Momma” had been firmly in reruns for months, I didn’t know if Mell was sick or retired and I’d missed the obits six weeks ago. Sad to see this day but it’s great to see him “surrounded” by the friends who loved and admired him.
