    My father, a great baseball fan, was born in 1907 during the heyday of that great Cubs team, and I can remember him telling me all about that trio and the poem almost 40 years later. It was just one part of all the great baseball lore he told me over the years. I actually heard the Casey at the Bat poem several years before that, when I saw the Disney cartoon of the poem before I was old enough to know much about the game at all, but loved the movie cartoons. There was no joy in Mudville that day.

    Ahh, childhood innocence.

    I didn’t see yesterday’s strip until today, and I found it to be one of the best examples of “black” or “dark” comedy I have seen in quite a while. Ideally, the objective of that genre is to make the reader experience both discomfort and laughter at the same time, which I certainly did. The expert blending of dark humour and social satire is what keeps me coming back to Lila. I also get a chuckle out of the commentary and the manner in which so many readers get so wrapped up in the story, that they sometimes seem to miss the subtleties. Keep up the good work John.
    p.s. This dark humour is far less disgusting than the so called “dead baby jokes” of the 1960’s.

    I like how Jeff is hanging from the top border of the last panel. Clever.

    Cause of Death: Felled by falling footwear. (Better than a falling piano, I guess)

    That’s the last thing I could ever have imagined by Mom doing to me.

    I guess there’s no time for second thoughts now.

    Isn’t a lie quite important in golf?
