    The earliest recorded defenestration? Possibly Queen Jezebel (2 Kings 9:30-33).

    I don’t want a restart on the old story. I want a new story. Been waiting several years for that.

    I found it not only wordy, but somewhat pedantic.

    I took Wootietoot’s challenge from a couple of days ago and looked up and read the story arc she (he?) recommended for comparing current work by the Benders with something by Dave Graue (sp?). It was interesting and I enjoyed it, but if that was intended as a representative sample, I can’t see what all the fuss is about. In some ways I like the present strip better. The Graue story was awfully wordy, and I came close to giving up on it before I reached the end. The artwork obviously took more work than today’s efforts, but sometimes simpler is better.

    When I was in college — 50 years ago ! — some of my dorm mates who were on very limited budgets used to eat dog food occasionally because it was cheaper than equivalent people food.

    Many years ago I was quite fond of Ben Franklin stores, but I haven’t seen any of those for decades. Do they still exist? I liked them (at least as they used to be, 40 and 50 years ago), much better than today’s various kinds of Dollar stores.
