    The fox appears to be one of those characters who exist mainly to be bumped off after serving a specific purpose — in this case, imparting vital information to Doc and Holly. Maybe you’re not supposed to care much, if at all, about such characters, but sometimes there is one you become drawn to, and you want them to stick around so you can get to know them — like our fox. But then, blam! Adios muchacho. That’s how it appears, though I’m hoping otherwise.

    Sounds like an address rather than directions, and Doc and Holly probably already know where it is. Possibly on a corner, as has already been suggested. Yes, it does sound a bit strange, but only because the street names aren’t typical of those that you would find in the offline world, at least none that I’ve ever encountered.

    It seems like it’s been a long time since we last saw Wally, Chick, and Kirbee (sometimes I forget names, too, even in stories that I’ve followed for a long time), even though it’s only been a short stretch. But when you consider the torrent of trauma and tragedy that has gone down within one day, that day seems like a lifetime, if not several.

    I know that it’s come up before, but I’ve been wondering whether Holly herself is re-enacting her story, or if she was transported into some other dimension for the duration. If Marx is behind all this, I would imagine that the latter is well within his powers.

    Oh, and don’t forget Irving!

    Oh, it won’t be long before the calm (or tedium, if you prefer) is shattered by the arrival of one in dogged pursuit. Sit tight, we’re in for some high caliber excitement.

    I did use another screen name once, but changed it to the present one the year before last. So, not recent for me; re the other ‘green,’ I can’t say. I’ll assume it’s just coincidence unless or until someone or something proves otherwise.

    Re Doorway Effect: while I have long been familiar with the phenomenon, it was not until recently that I learned it had a name.

    What’s more, I’ve found that it happens online as well as off. On many occasions, I plan either to visit a site or do a search, but go someplace else first — and forget where I had planned to go next. Though I usually remember, when I don’t it drives me nuts. Evidently virtual doorways exist as well.

    Evidently it hasn’t occurred to Miss Schultz that for Lum, attempting to ask her out was an act of bravery in itself.

    Here is the code for inserting an image with a fixed width:

    <img src=“yoursite.com/img.jpg” width=“350”>

    If you don’t need a fixed width, use the same code but omit the ‘width=“xx”’ part.

    In the midst of all the egg yolks — er, jokes — did anyone notice that the guys inside the cave look like Fred and Barney from The Flintstones? Their outfits, anyway.

    It would be nice to think that Lyn is simply being protective of Holly. But I don’t think he’s aware (yet) of his own mutation taking place. No, he has just received a Herculean gobsmacking, has no idea how to handle it and only wants to get away — just as Holly had run from Ethel.
