    Petey is absolutely right. Of course, there’s always Youtube.

    That’s true to a point, Petey, but if the masses are truly indifferent then you do badly in readers’ polls and the major chains drop you from the comics pages and you wake up one morning and your mother phones to tell you that your hometown paper has replaced you with another “Far Side” clone (which is a shock but not really a surprise, considering your nitwit brother-in-law is the freakin’ features editor down there. Jerk).

    Even Van Gogh would have liked to sell more than one painting in his lifetime…

    …And the worst part is that your mother sounds like she’s almost taking pleasure in breaking the bad news. Now that’s surprising, because she’d always seemed to be supportive of your work. Sure, she never really understood your strip, but then she still sends you clip-outs from “Family Circus” on a regular basis. You could have run a full page every day in The New York Times, and it wouldn’t register on her radar if you weren’t in the Tri-City Sun-Clarion.

    In fact, the biggest compliment you can remember hearing her pay you is “Oh, you’re so much nicer than that awful ‘Pearls Before Swine’ comic. I wish Boyd (your moron brother-in-law) would get rid of that one.” Fat chance. Boyd loves “Pearls”, and never passes up an opportunity to name-drop Stephan Pastis into any conversation. The big laugh is that Boyd’s kids like you more than they like him (Boyd, not Pastis). You’re not gonna break it to them that Dear Old Dad is the one who dropped their favorite uncle’s comic strip from the paper, but they’re going to ask about it and they’re going to find out somehow. Let’s see Stephan Pastis help him out of THAT little family discussion. Sarah could have done so much better.

    Not that you’ve got anything AGAINST Pastis, but come on. Of course, you wouldn’t want to follow Watterson’s example, either. You’ve got to find some sort of middle ground. But, “Dream On”, you know? It’s not like you’ll ever be burdened with THAT problem.

    Maybe you can do a book of original material, or something on the internet. People ARE actually making a living that way now, aren’t they? What kind of health insurance can you get? That would get Mom off your back.

    Looks like Petey really understands Timmy Fretwork.
