    I think for once, going literal on metaphorical advice works.

    Turned off the news readers several years ago in favor of print media. I am calmer and better informed. Your mileage may vary.

    It’s a good advice. There are things that are beyond our reach and our concerns.

    I’ve only followed half that advice (not watching the news). Maybe that makes me half smart?

    Oh, Pig. These days are just too rough on you. Got room in the daisies for me?

    Sorry, I don’t get it. Is “to stand in the daisies” some English idiom?

    Okay, I guess, as long as you aren’t pushing up the daisies!

    Slowly, a python sneakily approaches Pig and eats him.

    If I turned off the news I still would get it because my wife always watches Colbert. (Conan for me!)

    I turn on the news this morning. 49 dead at a shooting in two mosques in New Zealand. And so it goes.

    This is either really good timing, or bad timing for this strip, depending on your point of view, considering what happened in New Zealand…

    And yes, I know that it’s PURELY coincidental…

    And maybe Pig can pick the daisies like that little girl in LBJ’s infamous political ad.

    Our daisies aren’t up yet. Our tulips and daffodils are barely up, but aren’t showing flower buds yet. We could go out and stand in the remaining (cruddy) snow, but it wouldn’t be quite the same as standing in the daisies.

    The news is the same as it ever was. Only now we have all the 24/7 “news” aka Opinion networks who are in desperate need of something to fill air time
