Unless … the character is an angry mamasita?

There is a Hidden Valley just outside Pittsburgh …
If our man was aiming for Pittsburgh for vacation … well, let’s just say he’s rather lucky to have never found it.

Love the eyeball in the periscope in panel 4 … classic Watterson … tossing in a bit of surrealism to challenge our perception of the real.
Mommy-sore-at-us Rex … all the fun we would be having if she wasn’t?
C Red … grow an imagination … and maybe it will.
Glad your here to police the comments, though …
Why Calvin really looks surprised in the last panel. A thoughtful re-reading:
As Calvin unearthed the Coke bottle, he realized its familiarity. And then it all became apparent. He became enraged as he realized that he had been on his home planet all along; and that he was merely a captive soul on …
… The Planet of the Parents.
The “patient” is sick. But the U.S. Congress shouldn’t be the doctor.
Yet, the ubiquitous “government” is forced to intercede when the private market has failed so miserably. Private interests care only for private interests. Medicine is a domain of the public. Therefore, private interests are incompatible with the needs of the public domain. There has never been in the history of the world a private company that acted solely in the public good. And there never will be.
And, so, who should be the one to cure the ills of the U.S. healthcare system and manage its symptoms? Doctors. Physicians. The practitioners themselves. But, again, that cannot happen, because the house of medicine does not have providence on reforming institutions. It has neither the clout nor the means to affect change. And, so, government must step in to correct what only it can correct.
And before we are dishonest about all of this, government must interject, for it is in its own best interest to force change. Fittingly, the changes instituted now will benefit the citizenry, private companies and other public institutions. And then, by gosh, we would have … government in action.
It’s more than a little shocking that some folks sit on the sideline and rail about government not working; yet, when it does, these same folks only throw more derision into the public sphere.
