    mostly because I don’t know if Tracy even knew of Melies’ existence!)

    I noticed that too! Melies was certainly designed to look like a classic Dick Tracy Villain. And yet, he never actually did anything, other than confer with his crew at Blackheart HQ. And you’re right; it is doubtful if Tracy is even aware of him, unless all that off-panel desk work turned up some intel on him.

    The above strips showing Lizz, and the discussion of her undercover abilities, reminded me of one of her first undercover assignments. She pretended to wreck her car, and asked for help at a farm where Tracy and Sam suspected something funny was going on. “Granny” on the farm was hiding a huge bag of cash which had fallen into a horse trailer and ended up in the barn. Lizz spent several days on the farm and helped locate the loot.

    , In fact, I noticed that people from Pennsylvania often refer to their state as “pee-ay” (PA, spelled out).

    You know, that’s true! And it’s sort of odd, when you think about it. I’ve heard that many times, but no one says “Oh-Ach” (OH) for Ohio, or “Gee-Aye” GA) for Georgia. I wonder how that got started.

    Yes, I fell over myself with that post – two typos for the price of one!

    Oops – we have a typo today – that’s not how you spell “caliper” in Venus’ dialog ballon.

    . Getting hit in the torso somewhere seems more likely for such a reaction.

    My first thought was that the reaction we are seeing is a split-second realization that the bullet is coming his way.

    Someone today mentioned the “pendant” that Fritz Ann is speaking into. I think that is not a pendant – that is supposed to be the little microphone that police folks wear on their shoulder – you always see this in the movies, where they turn their heads into their shoulder and press a button to send.

    Mumbles got away? I thought Tracy had him on his sights.

    Yes, I wondered about that too. Yesterday, Tracy was telling him to drop the gun, and he had his (Tracy’s) gun pointed right at him. Now today, he is gone?

    “No Duh!” meaning, you’re stating the obvious. I haven’t heard nor seen that since I was a kid in the early 60s! We kids used to say that to each other all the time

    I agree with you Syd, that moving forward, we should have new villains and new crimes, and plenty of detective work.
