    Irony alert: Gil telling anyone how to parent when his own kids are missing/neglected/murdered/abused. Also, I’m confused: Is Max suspended or still in school?

    It’s way too early to worry about Kaz. He’s been gone only since March 17, a mere 10 days. Ten days in our world is the equivalent of one day in Milford, which is experiencing some strange time warp.

    Hey, Mop. Missed your question yesterday. At the risk of starting another round of comments about 88, the answer is it’s calendar days in the real world. Don’t know how to calculate time in the Giliverse.

    Our long national nightmare is over! (If you’re too young to remember it, or for some of you, too old, google it.) No coaches held hostage, unless you count Coach Glory — and I’ll leave that to someone else. I haven’t read MUT yet, but Mimi saying “hmm” has all kinds of possibilities, like “Hmm, who are these girls? I haven’t seen them all season and don’t recognize any of them.” Anyway, thanks Neal for freeing me from my counting duties. It’s going to be hard to top Mimi’s 88 days without an appearance.

    Still no Mimi. Day 88 of her captivity.

    Root for Michigan State, where I went to college, and UVa, where I sent a lot of tuition money for my son and daughter. Tough choice tomorrow as Spartans play the Hoos. Also went to U-M for law school.

    The first mention of basketball was on December 16, when Gil told True Standish that True was not allowed to play hoops because of all the hits he took in football. The first mention of Bobby (though he was called Robert at the time) was on December 18. The first sighting of Bobby was the next day. Counting from first mention of hoops gives us 96 days, and we’re not even close to a conclusion. By the way, December 18 was the last appearance of Mimi other than the obligatory holiday greeting. By the way, Part 2, Starfish, I live in Arlington, VA. Where are you?

    Uh, that’s Mimi, of course.
