    Ah, Isn’t there any character in the strip who can explain the concept of ‘Style’ vs. ‘Substance’ to Boopsie?

    You know, like right now in the big pile of problems we all have, the public has decided to go for brains and accomplishments; Slogan-slinging not so much support.

    The only hope for Style to regain dominance is for the brains to solve the current hard problems. Now, if only Duke could think this through to it’s logical end, how ‘on-board’ with the Obama administration would Duke and Son become?

    Does anyone remember JFK saying, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country”? The ability to pull the country together for the country’s sake is something that is needed in the White House. we’ve just had too much division, and it has hurt not just the U.S., but the world. This is called the, ‘Call to Arms’.

    I see nothing wrong weith Boopsies’ reaction, we have all had those ” oh jeez” moments. Then you go on to explain what the factsw are. Hey Grok, project much? The key word is change.

    Did Uncle Zonker ever get a diploma?

    I’m not sure, but I think Zonker finally got his degree in tanning…? Maybe it was honoris causa.

    Y’know, I’ve been reading (and loving) Doonesbury for years. There have been a lot of poignant moments, but this strip is the first to inspire me to write anything. The country certainly needs our help; I look forward to seeing these characters show us the way. Kudos to Garry Trudeau!

    Grok: Since you hate Trudeau and his comic so much why do you keep coming back? Do you just like to inflict your misery on the rest of us?
