    Missiles and death rays and weaponry have no part of Rover’s revelry. While Red spins dark visions of anarchy, Rover’s world has much more levity!

    Yep, that sounds like a boy’s poem…

    On the other hand, back in Red’s day, no one thought of planet-killing asteroids. We didn’t even know what killed off the dinosaurs.

    No one was talking about “planet-killing asteroids” in the sixties, when this strip is supposed to take place. No one had even dreamed that an asteroid could have wiped out the dinosaurs back then.

    Actually, some scientists are still debating that.

    I was drawing dinosaurs and palm trees.

    Actually, this strip takes place in the sixties, right? (actually, now that I think about it, it’d have to be, if new episodes of TOS are still airing from Red’s perspective) so actually, no, people were aware of the danger of asteroid impacts on a planet by the sixties (as evidenced by the fact that stories featuring roughly the same thing Red describes in his poem were already becoming a recurring theme in fiction by then) although I will agree that the believed danger was probably not as extreme as it is recognized today. but hey, it was the sixties. We had bigger worries to deal with back then.

    As for the dinosaurs, no, that theory didn’t arise until the seventies-eighties (found conflicting entries on that, but as neither are the sixties or earlier, it was a moot point) and even then wasn’t widely accepted until a few years later. This was a discovery for me; I was unaware the theory was so young. But the more you know…

    Rover is standing by the tree, about ready to “write poetry” in his own special way.
