    Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

    Matthew 7:3-5

    Dear Connie Shearer,

    I asked yesterday on Calvin and Hobbes whether you still read that strip as you no longer comment on it and I wanted to know whether you were all right as you once said you hoped I was all right after I was away for three days. I assured you that I was all right and had been visiting a friend and getting a covid vaccine.

    I am sorry that you don’t comment on Calvin and Hobbes anymore. I know that they are reprints from thirty years ago but it is still my favourite strip.

    I have a neighbor like this. I just avoid him, as do most of the other neighbors. I’ve tried to be the one to be nice to I’m, but some people just want to be miserable. Maybe I should get out my old softball bat, lol.

    Too many people are so entrenched in their opinions that they refuse to listen to others. Let’s face it, opinions are NOT facts! Personally, I love having my opinions challenged because it causes me to think and it gives me perspectives I have not thought of.

    Maybe Neighbor Bob should interest Rat in Rat 2.0. Rat 2.0 is just like the Rat clones from years ago. Rat 2.0 would be kind, considerate, social, not heavy drinkers, willing to accept others for who they are rather than constantly trying to change them, won’t see others as stupid for disagreeing with them. In otherwords, everything Rat is not.

    Never fear, Rat! Neighbor Bob (Old Version) may have beaten the crap out of you with his bat (how ironic, since you so often use one on Cartoon-Boy), but you Will Survive, since you are a Main Character, whereas, as we all know, Neighbor Bobs are expendable and endlessly replaceable!

    Given I tell people I am operating with version 5 of me, they either think they can change me, that I am a Cylon, or that I have split personalities.
