Good to see Otto taking the right steps towards redemption. Hopefully it’s not short term but life changing. Matthew although I cannot control how you choose to address your proven cyber bullying from the past you are correct that I have written unflattering comments towards you. I would like to take this time to apologize for doing so. I’d also like to suggest that you take a lesson from Otto, humble yourself and apologize to those you have picked on. That would have a greater impact then you could ever imagine.
Well Matthew, I hope Otto shows more growth in his life then you seem to have.
Hi morrow, thanks. It’s brings no joy to writewhat I did but I had to address the double standard. It does seem like the more things change the more they stay the same. Oh well.
Now that the bully story appears to be winding down I’d like to offer a few comments and observations.1.A very hard, important subject not dealt with often enough. Matthew deserves much credit for attacking it head on.2.The holding out hope for Otto to change is a very nice touch.3.The message of not staying quiet if you’re the victim of bulling is vital.4.Matthew has shown growth in all aspects of his strip and should be congratulated for this.
Having taken the time to point out the positives I find it necessary to point out a huge negative.It was extremely difficult for me to ignore the hypocrisy on Matthews’s part regarding the issue of bullying. Having had the opportunity to observe and be a part of Matthew’s interaction with various posters on other boards since 2008 I am convinced he is the ultimate example of what a cyber-bully is. Over the years Matthew has insulted, spoken rudely to and dismissed the feelings of others on a regular, consistent basis. The knowledge of how he treats others almost stopped me from receiving the message he was trying to convey. “Do as I say, not as I do” has always been and will always be a copout attitude. The fact that his interaction on this comment board has been civil doesn’t wipe away all the anger and rage he’s directed toward others throughout the years. Now I certainly agree that we can change who we are and how we treat others and if Matthew has changed that’s great. A huge sign of this would be if Matthew apologies to all the people he’s hurt and offended over the years just as Otto has to. If Matthew does this then I can accept that he has matured and grown up. Otherwise he is only a very talented person living a lie.

tsull2121, may I make a comment? As a non-regular poster these days I find you to be extremely intelligent and informative. I wonder if the current climate on this board might suggest a softer tone from you, especially with your comments to avenger09. We’ve seen the disappearance of a few regulars the past month so perhaps a less combative approach might be wise. Just a thought.
morrow it always brings a smile to my face whenever you bring up the good old days. Life was good back then!

Sorry, I can’t salute Locher, he was the worst thing to ever happen to the strip and I won’t miss him
Good morning Mikeyj. I just wanted to let you know that I completely understand why you feel the way you do and it has only been recently that I’ve gotten over those past few horrible years and have allowed myself to look at his whole body of work which is really quite respectable. Let me also take this time to let you know I’ve greatly enjoyed your work.
For sure morrow it wa a blast! A little too much maybe which is why I went through bassmanbob1,2,3,4 & 5, each one getting banned! You and I were certainly a good tag-team! Really, DL’s only fault was getting old, Matthew’s fault was being Matthew! I know which one I think is worst!Peace
Today marks the two year anniversary of the last Dick Locher Dick Tracy strip & I wanted to share some thoughts regarding it. I will always be grateful & appreciative to Joe, Mike & the rest of the current team for saving the strip from continuing down the path of mockery, foolishness and irrelevancy. They immediately began the process of restoring pride and sanity to a character that should have been revered as an icon but instead became the butt of jokes and ridicule. Are they perfect? Of course not, nobody is. However they need to be applauded for their effort and immense success in restoring pride, excitement and joy to the strip. I want to say something regarding Dick Locher. Some of you know that I was one of those in the forefront ripping him for the terrible state of the strip during his last few years. I even took the time to write stories mocking his Tracy. While my opinion that it was almost a crime regarding what a buffoon Tracy was allowed to become hasn’t changed I do feel that time is a great healer. Perhaps I needed to show a little less passion and more sensitivity in how I expressed myself. As I’ve gotten older and am forced to admit I just can’t do some things as well as I used to I find myself feeling a little guilty of my treatment of him. Dick Locher did spent a great part of over five decades being involved in various aspects of Dick Tracy which is no small feat. If weighing what I feel is the good of all those years against what I feel is the bad the good far outweighs the bad. Therefore I am using today’s anniversary to move beyond his last few years and will instead focus on his whole body of work. When doing this it is very easy to say “Thank you Dick Locher for your years of service and devotion to Dick Tracy and all the best with any future endeavors.”
This story seems very interesting!
