    Sunday comics are traditionally, and in the case of Hedge, reliably out of sequence. Sunday deadlines (when followed) are 4-6 week ahead of daily schedules. In other words, today’s comic was written weeks before the present story line. -mf

    Absolutely.

    Let’s put your graph in context. Yes, you are correct (as in not lying) that sea ice is higher than last year, but…

    From the National Snow and Ice Data Center:

    “This September, sea ice covering the Arctic Ocean fell to the sixth lowest extent in the satellite record, which began in 1979. All of the seven lowest extents have occurred in the last seven years, since 2007. Satellite data analyzed by NSIDC scientists showed that the sea ice cover reached its lowest extent on September 13. Sea ice extent averaged for the month of September was also the sixth lowest in the satellite record.”

    There are year to year fluctuations, but the recent trend is clearly toward less sea ice. Your graph is correct as far as it goes, but it does not depict the recent trend.

    Though it’s tiny, that’s an actual Banksy stencil: http://blog.nola.com/keithspera/2008/09/large_banksy%20photos%20sept%2018%20023.jpg

    The true Hammy/Sammy story is that the original Hammy wasn’t an actual character in the strip. In the first year of the strip, he was referenced as off screen road-kill kill and buried in a pizza box. Later we added Sammy (who is actually Hammy) to the strip. The first screenwriter on the film, Len Blum, mistakenly used the name Hammy instead of Sammy and it stuck through subsequent drafts. To claim ownership of Hammy/Sammy T and I swapped Sammy with his mirror double Hammy in 2005. Sammy lives happily on the other side of the mirror doing everything Hammy does, but backwards and in high heels.

    The Swimmer was what I had in mind when I wrote this week’s strip.

    OTH-1 did quite a bit better than breaking even.
