Moscow Mitch on the cover of Time!
I was an investigative agent for the NLRB for 30 years and handled quite a number of USPS cases. I think I dealt with every union, including the little known National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association (NRLC). I learned what an amazingly complex organization it is. In defending the USPS, I point out to those who will listen that a first-class letter costs the same whether it is mailed from a small town in Maine to another small town in Maine, or from that small town in Maine to Alaska. It delivers 6 days a week to your home. (Heck, I can’t even get my local paper delivered to my doorstep anymore. lol). The current cost of a first-class stamp is 55-cents for that service. A first-class stamp in Germany is currently 70 cents, set to go up to 80 cents this summer. That’s just to mail a letter inside Germany, which is roughly the size of Montana or New Mexico. Want to send that same letter to neighboring France? Try 1 Euro, 10 cents, which is about $1.19.
Next to the Wiley bears, I love the Wiley cats!

Dr. Evil, Dr. Spaceman…
Keep ’em coming!
The Cincinnati Enquirer (a Gannett, emphasis on the NET, corporation), also stopped then strip after the Wiley Bears “incident.” A few months later, with no explanation, it returned but in such a small frame you could…bearly…see it. I now read it here on GoComics.
I quite enjoyed the cartoon! (And I’m happy that you are back in the Cincinnati Enquirer after being put in PC jail). I’m just surprised “some idiot…” didn’t add “Ackschually….”
That sign! What is forbidden, even on Fridays?
