    I love especially how often the Bloom County reruns seem to be right on current topics. Change the names from the ones 30 years ago, and we’re just rinsing and repeating a lot of the previous generation’s foibles. Go back another step and when Peanuts gets poltical/social, it’s the same with the 50s and 60s. (It’s morons all the way down!)

    To be fair to some of Hattie’s naysayers, her data is more than a bit off. There are a lot of cheap bulbs out there, though they’re still better than the old kind. As a teen in the early 90s, I acquired a big, heavy, double-layered CFL for my reading lamp. It was supposed to last 7 years, and instead it gave me nearly 20. As much as I loved that bulb, I love the newer generation even better. They don’t heat up as much, cost a lot less to use, and turn on instantly. Their color rendering index has improved to nearly 100, and despite a few premature failures, mine last on average several times as long as incandescents. I even bought a “lifetime supply” about five years ago, which was just a couple dozen. As it is, I might not even go through all of them. Fluorescents were just there to tide us over while better technology matured. The new LED retrofits for all of our recessed lights look amazing, and we got them each for about $15. They use 10% less juice than the CFLs, are rated to last over 40 years, AND we can dim them!

    Poor guy. His latex won’t take a transfusion like his mylar friends would.

    It’s not the rabbit’s fault. He acquired the addiction whole growing up in a cereal test lab.

    However the dimmer works, it seems more plausible than getting effective climate policy past American legislators.

    It’s simpler than that. I’m guessing the dimmer doesn’t really affect the sun, just the upper atmosphere’s opacity. Thus the instantaneous effect.

    Still not sure what responds more when I see this one, my sense of humor or my sense of compassion…

    There are a lot people with mild to severe gluten intolerance, and for them this is a godsend. However, many others follow along for no reason at all. I like to say that the ignorant ones live a “glutenfrei” life. Though I’m sure the genuine ones are grateful for how much the price drops as demand increases.

    I love how so many haters of this strip go right past the point to remark on their notion that the other side is worse, thinks they’re perfect, or both. Wiley implies no judgment of the “current administration” for what it actually HAS done. Whether your faults are few or many, anyone who makes that much effort to heap someone else’s mistakes onto your plate is too busy casting blame to be a part of the solution.

    Maybe the fumes of burning paint helped inspire Picasso’s subsequent work.
