    Wrong answer kiddo, If you had a phone and a TV you where not poor. For 10 years we had neither, nor missed them. Seat belts was what Dad did if we misbehaved. We got belted.

    Well, then we must have been poor and I think our tv only had two channels. But we did get an extra long cord for the phone! That was a big deal!

    Deprived childhoods – and we didn’t even know it.

    When you only just have enough to eat and some kind of roof over your head – you’re doing better than most of the rest of the world. (channeling my mother – and she ain’t dead yet) LOL

    Anybody within traveling distance to Kenosha Wisconsin- I hope you’ve taken note of the box up there to the right, and you’ll come see me at the festival. Frankly, I’d love to seed the audience with Buckets fans, otherwise, it’s gonna be all ‘Pearls Before Swine’ fans, and you know what that leads to.

    I’m a fan of Stephan’s strip myself, of course, I just wanna make sure The Buckets has some good representation there, too. As for the border laws, well, I suppose most folks wish all that hadn’t happened, and the few that are glad are pretty unpleasant people.

    Oooh! You and Jef Mallet seem to be needling Pastis a bit much! Though I hear that he doesn’t read the comments…

    Everybody was POOR then, compared to what people have now. The fact is, nobody (in this country, anyway) is poor in the sense anymore that it used to be defined, i.e., you don’t have a place to live, enough to eat, enough to wear, etc… We have so many social services now that the only reason for being poor in the true sense is just that someone isn’t aware of what available. Now being poor is defined as not having more than one flat screen TV, as not being able to live an upper middle class lifestyle.

    You are going to do Toronto Fan Expo next year right? right? right? So I can finally meet you, and take you out on the town for a night of fun and urban adventure? (it’s nearly as fun as the kayaking and uni-cycling … almost.)

    Even being AWARE of what’s available, doesn’t mean the person won’t CHOOSE to be homeless. In Toronto, many of the men and women who live on the street CHOOSE to, as they’d rather do that, then have to deal with the government and/or be given “hand outs”.

    Well, I suppose in his day, anyone with a TV at all was considered “rich” by comparison. :-s
