    Hello Alexikakos and other commentators,

    Alexokakos, you knocked me out with your classy packaging of two versions of Richard Cory. Bless the programmers who first designed HyperCard and the folks later who refined it so we could pull the disparate together so effectively with Cut & Paste.

    The only thing that I might add to a discussion is I view it as insufficiently bloodthirsty.

    Richard Cory is the last image we have of a rich guy whose loss we might mourn. He appeared perfect and apparently had everything but was a troubled soul without another who might even imagine he needed comfort.

    Our present image of Richard should be a 1%er who is busy financing shills into elective office and paying lobbyists outside Congress to subvert or block legislation that needs to be passed.

    Today’s Richard has turned what was once called inheritance tax into a “death tax” and convinced folks whose thinking is often sound to believe allowing the super rich to become and economic aristocracy is some how a democratic ideal. Tax law now finances this aristocracy who have clearly amassed way too much and who is constantly looking for ways to pay less for institutions, infrastructure and services that improve the quality of life for all.

    I would not mourn the loss of this modern day Richard Cory. Not one bit.

    I’ve have come to delight in the people who comment on the strip and who clearly enjoy it as much as I. To all these I recommend a website called Tarzan’s Tripes Forever which I dip into from time to time. The site will introduce you to Feghoots, a character and type of shaggy dog story from a science fiction writer, Stanislaw Lem, who could have been nominated for a Nobel in literature. That is the only stone I think left unturned.

    Yo! Ooi! Hi! The seed that flowered into Stephen becoming the Scheherazade of a 1001 Puns in Three Panels can be traced back to Dilbert Classics today or for those who like going through archives the strip for 6/28/91. ..The horror…the horror…Oh, the humanity…A day that will live in…

    First, he gave men tinnitus.

    Thus, he made man’s world one unending Aural Rorschak
    test.

    Then, he made the other side hate all puns, feghoots, shaggy dog stories.

    That’s like giving all guys two yellow cards before we even got on the field.

    Mike,

    Shouldn’t it be a “fat cat”?

    From my own warped, sad, limited point of view—do such considerations merit a concern measured against what the overrwrought , libidinous ears and over ambitious digingus suggest— We are looking at two fallible men fell into when a raging dingus blasted to stupid null good works, thoughts and potential!! Suck stupidiy and spit back sound policy for the good of us all!!!! RAD
