    Wow, memories, loss, sadness. I’m really getting old. I was a freshman when college deferments ended, followed by married deferments. (or maybe it was the other way round..) sophomore year I got my “Greetings from the President”. That was a shock, and that was when I figured out kids of politicians and rich people didn’t get drafted. After bending over naked for inspection in a line with 75 others I got creative. ROTC took me in and when this strip was published I was in Pilot school. A little over a year later I was bombing Hanoi. Kids today have no clue how good it is to be able to make your own decisions about your path to the future. I’m glad they do, and I wish so many of us from that era could have had the same. It’s been wonderful to read your strip for so many years Gary, but I am truly going to miss it.

    F86 has either 6 20mm guns or 4 50 cal cannons, depending on aircraft model, in the nose. And trust me, if this was not fantasy, there would be no shooting anyway, there are at least 3 safeties in the way of firing anything but that pistol.

    Master arm switch, squat switch, safety pins, ordnance select switch, belt motor power ……. there’s a whole set of safeties that have to be defeated before you could fire the guns or the cannon (depending on which model, either 6 .50 cal, or 4 20mm cannon). Big difference between actually firing the ordnance and things going off low order after a crash.

    hahahahah, obviously no one in the group has ever seen what it takes to crank up an F86. One does not just hop in and punch the start button.

    Yeah, too bad, but Gunther’s just a bit out of touch, so to speak.

    Right ON Charliekane! “I play one….” Also right on, take a look in the history books back to Russia, 1917. A bunch of super rich, lording it over the peasants. Eventually the disenfranchised turned things around, in a pretty big hurry. I don’t think anybody wants that history to repeat itself. The fat cats need to learn to share, somehow. So far about the only equalizer to date has been taxes on the rich. CEO’s do not need to have pay rates of 200 times what their employee’s have.

    I dunno bout word choice here. “Glides” ?? Takeoff in any airplane is about the least “glidey” it ever gets.
