    I pity the people whose newspapers only carry the Sunday strip, because they will have no idea what today’s is about.

    I was just tipped off to the changes GoComics has made. Since they appear to be regressing rather than progressing, this will be my last post on any of their comics. I’m likely not even going to bother reading comments any more either, since there is no hope for discussion. I’ll miss a lot of you. Bye.

    The landlord must not ever have been a kid.

    Jeffrey has watched too many episodes of the old sci-fi series “Sliders”.

    it always struck me as funny (not in a ha ha way) that the best that Star Trek age technology could do for poor Captain Pike was “beep” and “beep-beep.”

    Uncloaking again because the good Sheriff’s comment pointed out a major problem with the way the Star Trek universe played out.

    The H&I channel is currently running all of the Star Trek television series, one episode per night per series, and I’ve taken advantage of that to watch Enterprise again. It was the last series to be produced, yet look how far more advanced its technology is than that of The Original Series.

    The problem is two-fold: One (and this is where Sheriff’s comment is very relevant), Gene Roddenberry apparently didn’t let his imagination run wild enough in terms of what kind of advances would have been possible that far in the future. Of course there would likely have been something better for Captain Pike than his beeping wheelchair, given that it wasn’t much further in the future when Next Generation introduced us to Geordi’s visor.

    Two, the audience is so accustomed now to high-tech sets and special effects that it would have been suicidal for Paramount to use a “rinky-dink” bridge on Enterprise to stay “primitive” compared to TOS.

    All of which means — to get back on-topic — 35 years from now we’ll look at whatever dress emerges from this story arc, compare it to then-current styles and wonder what they were thinking. (Except me … I’ll be 95 and won’t care.)

    Good for you, Gil.

    Decloaking just for a minute here.

    I have known situations of all three variations of the traditional “bride, you take your husband’s last name, period” philosophy.

    1. My dentist’s wife is also a dentist and they operate a practice together, along with their son who followed in his dad’s footsteps. She still uses her maiden name professionally (which is kind of neat for me, since my dentist is my dentist because he is a friend’s brother-in-law, as in brother to the wife who keeps her last name at the office).
    2. My own mother replaced her middle name with her maiden name after marriage, although some legal documents through the years were executed with her original middle name. Since she passed away seven years ago, I can’t ask her about that.
    3. The former mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa, was born Antonio Villar Jr. but when he married Corina Raigosa in 1987 they combined their last names. The marriage dissolved twenty years later but he keeps the name as he is well-known by it politically.

    A personal note: Thanks for all the kind words over the past couple of weeks from those regulars that miss me. I do still read the comments even though I am no longer inclined to be an active poster.

    It is a sad situation where one “pro” user was able to have the FAQ suppressed, yet the moderators appear unable to do anything about the idiots who continue to post things like today’s “Brad should get a sex change” comment. No wonder I don’t really want to be here.

    Cloaking device back on.

    Okay, this is where I started reading this strip originally. Time for me to go.
    Bye, Satchel.
    Bye, Rob.
    Bye, Bucky.

    Time to take a break.

    And I think I will take one. This nonsense about one “pro” member bullying the moderators into removing the FAQ sours me on the whole deal.

    If the moderators hear from enough people favoring its return, they know how to reach me. If they rule in favor of the bully, then I’ll know it is pointless to even be commenting and cancel out completely.

    My thanks to those who posted here in favor of the FAQ … (trilogy, Schroedinger’s Dog, SukieCrandall, JimT8, activist1234, JPuzzleWhiz) and those who may have thought about posting but didn’t.

    My hope is that the moderators will listen to all of you and allow the FAQ postings to resume in the future.

    Until then, as Edward R. Murrow said (and Keith Olbermann reprised years later) … good night, and good luck.
