Arlo and Janis by Jimmy Johnson for February 01, 2013
"Life is what happens while you're making other plans." You've probably heard John Lennon said that. Actually, it's attributed to Allen Saunders, a comic strip writer whose work included Mary Worth and Kerry Drake. Lucky so-and-so never had to be funny!

Here is a LONG history of the quote for anyone else who has mis-attributed this quote many times in the past like I have: http://quoteinvestigator.com/2012/05/06/other-plans/

When our paper imploded to three day delivery and very poor coverage, they raised the price. Not sound business practices I would think.

Is it just my browser, or has the typeface changed? (Yes I know, it’s not my browser.)

I subscribe to my hometown paper online because it is cheaper than home delivery or buying one from a machine and I don’t have all that paper stacking up.

Iced tea…. I’m confused.
What about the good, honest, law-abiding REST of us?
And what does that have to do with anything here?

One great thing I’ve noticed about this strip: Sometimes Jimmy J takes a break from the pressure of having to be uproariously funny every day. I respect and like that; it means the strip can go on consistently for years and not fizzle out.
Just a little regular glimpse into the lives of A&J and Ludwig is just fine now and then; it’s real life.
