Democratic candidate, not Democrat candidate.
The saddest comic strip I’ve read (perhaps barring a couple of Agnes strips) was a Monty strip in which the kid decides to continue Jarvis’s employment even though a robot butler was more efficient than Jarvis. The kid decides to let the robot go instead, because unlike Jarvis, the robot was impossible to humiliate.
I wonder why so few people comment on the ongoing defunding of public schools in several states, especially their music and arts programs.
In fact, k ncreases faster than x because of civilian deaths.
In the US, 1 kcal is confusingly referred to as 1 calorie. A megacalorie meal, in everyday US usage, would just be a 1000 calorie meal (or, more appropriately, a 1000 kcal meal) which is fairly reasonable for a burger, fries, and soda.
I was very unhappy with the strip yesterday…
This strip is indeed much better and discusses an important issue (and has the right arc – i.e. towards profundity on an important issue rather than away from it) but I fear the picture Jef presents, at least regarding racism today, is too rosy. It lulls people into thinking that racism is behind us while the academic evidence (and I can only personally speak for economics studies) strongly suggests otherwise. Things are indeed better than Jim Crow or the antebellum South but they still are far, far, far from truly just or justifiable.
I was being sarcastic! I thought it was blatantly obvious. Poe’s law is a harsh mistress.
Institutionalized racism was just a widespread weird fad (not unlike folks these days using water bottles instead of fountains) that is now thankfully over. Got it.
The election is on our minds.
It’s amusing (but not surprising considering how delusional this strip is) when a comment has more likes than the comic strip itself!
