The Brooklyn Accent Free

Born two years after Charlie Brown's debut; mainframe geek for three decades for a great metropolitan bank, now semi-retired and keeping busy as a spelling and grammar geek for an investment company (with a couple of side gigs). I've identified with Charlie Brown as a kid, Mike Doonesbury in college, Dilbert at work, and Opus in my free time.

    Schroeder does not appear to be using spray paint here, and I’d wager that Charlie Brown didn’t either. (Where does a third-grader in 1952 get the money for a can of spray paint?)

    They didn’t have Wi-Fi yet, so they provided waifu instead?

    But that was also part of his fantasy—that he’d be the kind of guy who’d do that.
