    Good morning™, all!

    So, do you think Libris practices fencing at the gym or does she just store that case there so that it’s locked away from investigators? She looks pretty grouchy. Maybe she is feeling the pressure.

    Lizz seems to be channeling Lt. Uhura in the first panel, but it’s just a shadow.

    “Goat Joke of the Day!”(To continue until there’s one honest to goodness panel of real, slam bam ACTION!)

    to help you survive the latest episode of; “As the Worm Inches Along!”

    Q. What is a little goat’s favorite nursery rhyme to sing?

    A. “Row, Row, Row Your Goat!"

    THE END HAS COME!

    Yes, I do believe it’s time to put this goat to bed. I’ve been waiting for one, single, stand by itself panel of the tiniest bit of action in the strip to cease the goat jokes. The reality is, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY ACTION IN THIS STORY!

    Gweedo’s goats are going to move over to that action filled strip;

    “Love is…"

    Whatever the plan is Tracy and Sam will play it close. Chances are nothing is written down. I get an opportunity to see their deductive reasoning skills at work. I dare not blink least they go by me like a blur.

    The lady keeps her pool stick at the gym. There are a lot of pick-up games in the neighborhood. The men are jostling each other on how classy this lady was when she ran the table on them. Come on over baby, whole lot of betting going on.

    I still say she’s using a Swiss Degen sword. It fits perfectly with the crimes of stealing those ancient documents.

    Good morning™, peeved perps !

    If Libby is not the one doing the killings (surprise twist) then I would say she sparred and got beat and that would make her ‘perfectness’ blanch at being bested in a match.

    Keep digging what? More corpses? What happen to poor book binding guy’s murder? It the most recent crime and a slap by killer across you cops faces. He tries to helps you. Now several days passed but still no questioning book binding store people? Or coffee shop people too? No attempt to access their phone calls records between the time he meet cop and the murder?Obviously one of them has tips off the killer. How else would killer knows? Why else he be killed soon after meeting cop? No gathering CCTV footage near that place of murder too? Poor man’s life has no value? All you is does is identify his body in morgue. This is terrible. Terrible.

    Despite what seems to be the assumption here in the strip, saliva is not required for a DNA test. Yes, it is a convenient way to collect it for DNA tests – but certainly not the only way. Anything you touch is likely to retain a skin cell or two. (We flake all the time… A lot of the dust around our homes is actually us.) The towel would have a ton of DNA evidence.

    Have the police acted on the evidence they have yet which would have established probable cause and obtained a search warrant yet? Sam could demand the towel as evidence… (Or, he could slip the towel lady a $20 for the towel, explaining he has this fetish thing he needs to satisfy.)

    Amazing that nobody questions that Madonna’s carrying a case with a “C” on it INTO a gym, then leaves WITHOUT it…even the front desk slob should have enough sense to realize that there’s something off, and dont give me any garbage about “shift changes” either, most people who work out at a gym dont spend 8 hours there, mostly 2 or 3 maximum, so the front desk bobble head would be the same person who saw Madonna arrive with the case. Even if they rationalized in their empty little head that she might have given it to someone as a gift, it would still raise an eyebrow. Also, if you got as much money as Madonna here obviously does, why work out in a public gym anyway? Surely the little bookworm butcher could afford better machinery than they could

    Looking at Xaviera’s face in the last panel, I’ll bet she has a voice like Burgess Meredith’s Penguin.

    I thought there was an “IC” on the case, but it appears to be just a C – standing for Choate? or Caxton?

    First, I finished War & Peace yesterday. Started when this story arc started as a distraction. Now on to Anna Karenina. Second, there is no way, with all her wealth, that Ms. Libris does not have her own gym on her property. That’s an epic fail.

    1-DT: Beat it! I gotta think. LEE: Psst. It’s about to get smoky in here, Sam – Tracy is gonna try to think!

    2-DT: BUT FIRST…Let’s me and you put your plan to get Xaviera’s DNA into action, Sam. I never pictured her being a sex worker but you got more experience in that area than me. I’ll requisition $50 so you can proceed. Uhhh…just don’t mix your DNA with her saliva if you know what I mean.

    SAM: No promises! Actually, I believe I can promise that my DNA will be all over the “collection tool” before I even put my plan into action…

    3-TOWEL GAL: Since you never do anything but store stuff here, might I suggest that you simply use a locker at the Bus Terminal. Save you lots of money. XL: Grrrr! That wench-face is lucky she doesn’t own any valuable manuscripts…

    Knowing her level of achievement in fencing, why would we think that X has only one sword?

    From today’s Comics Curmudgeon:

    I have to admit that it’s a little discomfiting to learn that X. Libris, a wealthy, sinister rare book collector who dresses in a severe black suit all the time and looks exactly like Cate Blanchett, belongs to a Planet Fitness where she goes after work to lift free weights of [sic] whatever. I was going to grudgingly acknowledge that this humanizes her a bit, but you know what? Part of Dick Tracy’s whole deal is that its villains are inhumanized, in the sense that their skulls and faces are deformed in disturbing and biologically improbable ways and they die impossibly agonizing deaths, so I’m going to have to give today’s strip a thumbs down.

    Then we learn the case holds a loooooong fake nose for her debit in CYRANO, JUST A WACKY, ZANY GUY. The clue is the ‘C’ on the case, y’all!

    The look on Ms. Libris’ face seems to say, Get lost… (I’m sure someone out there could do better, but I’m trying to be nice, here.)

    A gym locker seems like a good place to stash a piece of sporting equipment (in its travel case) when not exercising with it (or murdering with it). Xaviera is her usual cheerful dystopian self….
