    Um, Goldie, you might want to cut Lupin a bit of slack on his Press Pass … I mean, you wouldn’t want him to examine your “badge” too closely, would you?

    It seems Goldie doesn’t have a monopoly on kitchen access. ;-)

    The get out of jail card has a cat on it, which means they play cat-themed Monopoly. Now I want that.

    Press passes. Lupin has the monopoly on those.

    Well, she could escort him onto the scene. Cops sometimes do that when their superiors aren’t looking.

    On the use of fake ID documents… such as a “Get Out of Jail” card as a Press Pass…

    In 1987 I had a friend, all of 23 years old, who was skilled at bluffing and creating fake supporting documents for his bluffs. He’d started while still in high school, making a copy of his driver’s license that altered his birthdate to make him able to get into bars and buy alcohol.

    By the time I knew John, he had faked copies of a variety of journalist IDs, bluffing his way into interviews with film actors, authors, rock performers, and… in this case… political figures.

    I was used to hearing about his adventures after the fact. When the contenders for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency of the United States held one of their 1987 debates at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, I anticipated a good story.

    I watched the televised debate with several friends, most of whom knew John. I said “Watch for camera views of the audience. We’ll probably see John.” Doubts were expressed, but when the first shot of the audience appeared, there he was front row in a great looking tuxedo. General amazement among my friends.

    The next day, I phoned him and got the details. After the debate, he tried to bluff his way backstage, past the Secret Service, with a fake “Rolling Stone Press Pass.” He was walked out by a discerning agent who spotted the fakery. He promptly sneaked back in by an obscure entrance he had known for years. This time, he got as far as introducing himself to candidate Gary Hart and asking his first question. But, he was spotted by the same SS agent and more forcibly ejected, warned of arrest if he tried to get back in.

    Not long after, the “secret girlfriend” facts about Hart became public and he withdrew his bid for nomination. I’ve always wished that John had gotten and published his interview.

    Lupin’s little gambit in today’s strip reminded me of all this.

    P.S. —Ronald Reagan was elected. And yesterday was the 33rd anniversary of Hart’s withdrawal.

    A valid “get out of jail” card seems like a universal pass to me. I wish I had one.

    …. but cat, proud cat,

    Drest in a little brief authority,Most ignorant of what she’s most assured,Her bossy essence, like an angry dog,Plays such officious tricks before the kitchenAs make reporters seethe; …

    Apologies to you-know-who.

    Classic police , verses press standoff. Reminds me of a incident years ago. A photographer for the Rhode Island Providence Journal once got a photo of a gunman fleeing a shooting (gun in hand) at a local festival. Police got wind she had pictures (evidence) and caught up to her at the office where a stand off over the film occured. Until management, on both sides, stepped in and sent them all to the time out room. Opps I mean dark room. The police got their copy, the paper kept the film, and the picture took up half the front page of the Sunday paper. Everyone was very happy , except the gunman, who turned himself in later that week.

    How can you put something IN a lanyard? A lanyard is a strap. Lupin’s pass is in a badge holder.

    If he were a real reporter, he’d have that press pass stuck in his hatband.

    Just a reminder that Georgia is going to be reading from Take It Away Tommy and Lupin Leaps In today at 1PM Pacific time. I am hoping to at least have it up on my phone to listen to while I am working. So far I don’t have any meetings at that time.

    Even cat-themed Monopoly would not make me want to play Monopoly. I’ve never liked that game. Not one bit.

    Cat-themed Monopoly would just inspire me to steal all the game pieces and build a cat community on my own.

    Today is No Socks Day. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. It is currently 36°F, NNE 20 to 27 mph winds off the lake, wind chill of 27°F. It’s raw out there. And we have to go to the post orifice.

    If you think the weather is chaotic now, well, in the not-quite-immortal words of filker and parodist Tom Smith, “You ain’t seen, nothin’, yet.”
