    Pig should also pay more attention and not rely on others for his safety.

    I didn’t think a crossing guard made that much money. :/

    He’s right. Pig CAN cross. Now, if he MAY cross…

    Most crossing guards are retired men and women. They can get distracted sometimes when their retirement assets are at risk.

    Hey, the Dow hit 28,000 so even though there’s carnage, everything’s fine. :-)

    If you leave any government employee in charge of your health or safety, you asked for it.

    That crossing guard should save checking for his break.

    Are you covertly saying crossing guards are not paying attention to the children they are supposed to be protecting?

    Why does the crossing need to be guarded anyway? Is it valuable?

    Back to the drawing board for self-driving vehicles – the AI can now detect a person in the street, but cannot identify a Pig

    Texting while doing crossing guard duty, but it was only a second. Good thing it’s a comic and not real life, otherwise he’d be arrested for dereliction of duty and perhaps involuntary manslaughter.

    I’m afraid all of you missed the joke, which was a play on words, as usual (for Pastis). Cross trading is common within the mutual funds community; hence, when Pig asked if he could “cross” the guard looked up from his mutual funds and said “Sure.”

    I see it differently. He has permission, but he is unable….he can’t.
