MALLARD FILLMORE YESTERDAY 9/26: @ Jan C. Yes…lol!
CRANKSHAFT: It took me a minute to get it, but apparently Ed is saying that the instructions were not specific as to whose birth certificate was going to be needed. That’s a comical stretch, IMHO.
FUNKY W: We know what’s coming, and Adeela’s happy new life is about to get a big shake-up.
MARK TRAIL: An interesting Educational Strip about the Ruddy Duck. More here…
P. My thoughts, exactly. Who? Knew?
FUNKY: The star on Adeela’s license was mentioned in comments at CK, with the same question that you ask. OK…this is not real life; it’s the comics! …and author Tom Batiuk has cleverly brought the enhanced driver’s license to the forefront and our attention in his other strip (CRANKSHAFT). lol
FOXTROT: The “Roswell” comment in the last column must have to do with the “flying saucer.” Added comment…If there are aliens among us, they are probably people like Jason. lol
FUNKY W.: The driver’s license arc has been appearing in both CRANKSHAFT and in FUNKY, but today’s FW has a quite unexpected turn of events. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a federal law enforcement agency under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
MARK TRAIL: I like today’s 1-2-3-Panel strip. (smile)
Good morning, Vagabonds….
At 11 a.m. ET, it’s 85 and clear, but rain is expected before the day is over.

MT: An afterthought…will Cherry tell editor Bill Ellis that she is willing to attend and accept the award on Mark’s behalf?
FOXTROT: A big chill? That’s what happens when the thermostat is set too low.
MARK TRAIL: OK. I’m really curious as to what Cherry is going to say to Mark’s editor.
MARY WORTH: I like that Tommy is showing some spunk and ambition, but Brandy seems to be throwing cold water on his plan.
CRANKSHAFT: It’s not a scam, except the requirements Ed is mentioning are comical. There really is an enhanced driver’s license, and somebody posted something about getting one in real life over at GoComics Benitin y Eneas (just in the last week or so). I think it’s a license that is also an ID that will allow the bearer to fly domestically after an upcoming date that will require more stringent ID for domestic flights. Driver’s licenses are issued by the state govts. (not the fed. govt.). I’m not an expert on any of this; the best thing is to google the driver’s license info. for one’s own state.
Hola Vagabond Friends…
It’s 84 degrees outside right now. I took a mid-morning walk under an overcast sky, and got caught in a drizzle rain for the last couple of blocks. The rain was just the “spitting” kind, so I didn’t get very wet; but I had to cover my GPS, so I didn’t get an accurate track of my mileage (about. 9/10 I think).
Benitin & Eneas: No translation is needed today.

DICK TRACY: I have no idea who these two women are…or who they are talking about. ???
MARK TRAIL: Good for Mark! This is a Jack Elrod story….does anyone know if Mark was still working for this same employer when we were reading the more recent James Allen strips?
MARY WORTH: I can’t wait to “hear” Tommy’s ideas!
COMICS: I had a lot of problems with my usual CK site this morning. (azcentral.com) Did anyone else have problems with “az”?
FOXTROT: “Darth Jason,” indeed. There’s no mention of the www (world-wide web). Of course, there was an internet long before there was a www, and the www is only a part of the internet, like the deli is only a part of the entire grocery store. smile
CRANKSHAFT: Shades of Macbeth! Somebody needs to tell Ed about Google.com (not to mention DuckDuckGo.com, et al.). lol
