    My cursive is so much less legible than my block lettering I have not written anything but my signature in cursive for more than 30 years. I do not lament its passing.

    Hobbes’s comment in the second panel is one of my all-time favorite C&H lines.

    Clotheslines (and fences) are prohibited by our HOA.

    In my first apartment I was broken into three times in two weeks (the third time there was nothing left to take). It doesn’t get any easier.

    @starcandles, I disagree. I was a Rationalist in my teens but became aware of a pervasive personal force in what should have been an impersonal world. The most obvious is the extreme disparity between very close brushes with death among children and the relatively much lower rate of child death… or even grievous injury. I am a recovering math-head but I would never presume sterile statistics rule our lives.

    Here in Northern Arizona bubonic plague is not so rare that it would be ludicrous. We average around a case a year, carried by prairie dog fleas. We also have Haanta virus, which is a lot worse. Y’all come on down!

    Personally, I don’t like wheeled suitcases – too noisy. I pick them up and carry them but then the wheels are a nuisance.

    Treaties such as the Geneva Conventions are no joke, and it is not just a “quaint document.” The Nuremburg trials were solely based on violations of the Kellogg-Briand pact, to which the US and Germany were both signatories. Japan did not sign the pact. Not all nations are signatories of the Geneva Conventions, either, and I doubt Id would have signed.

    The only virtue of war is it settles things that cannot be settled any other way – it is not fair, it just settles them. WWI is an excellent example. According to The Guns of Autumn one of the commanding generals was asked what caused the war. He answered “If only we knew.” Everybody could see it coming but nobody really knows why, even today. I have seen dozens of bogus explanations but none that really fit. Unfortunately it ended in armistice, which means nothing was settled. The same is true of Korea. There must be defeat to make war work.

    When people artlessly ask why I don’t do something about my baldness I reply, “I worked hard to get this way.”
