    Been waiting for this one: Yesterday’s Bizarro strip! Pig murders solved!

    Now, let’s return to Wally and Kirbee!

    And I’m with you, Still Da Avenger, that a rushed ending is in the offing! After this brawl, what’s left to tell?

    But not quite as bad as the situation in your local public school!

    Tsull2121 (aka Little Timmy): I just finished the Aurora Citizens Police Academy. Aurora, Colorado, is a suburb on the eastern border of Denver. Aurora has already gotten more real estate than Denver, and is working at becoming more populous, as well.

    All that to say this, police departments in the metro Denver area, and around the country, all have one thing in common: Underfunding, at least in for the basics. Good grief! Our cops have to buy their own guns and bullet proof vests!

    So, in a very sad way, I have to confess that it’s not at all unusual for a police department to depend upon the largess of local businesses and citizens for vital supplies!

    And that doesn’t even begin to address us volunteers!

    Oh, heck! I just ran into the Go Comics infamous character limit!

    What got cut off was that very decision – how or whether to afford college – could have been a different story line for each and every kid that graduated Pitts High however long ago that was. The path would not have been the same for any two kids, thus generating probably a couple years’ worth of stories as each kid decided where to go and how to get there.

    Perhaps obviating all of the story lines we have been subjected to up to this point!

    Capricorn9th and And Your Point Would Be, above, made a compelling statement, that the problem with this strip is that it’s a strip about kids, catering to people who were kids many, many decades ago!

    They also make the argument that Greg and Karen are out of touch with the very kids whom they are modeling in this strip.

    Seismic-2 pointed out that Go Comics is a forum that also supports Pibgorn and other not-necessarily-family-oriented comic strips. Of course, Go Comics is not the only publisher; Luann is still in many (of the remaining) newspapers across the country – newspapers may be setting the bar for Luann, not so much Go Comics.

    For myself, I can’t say that I’d be comfortable with Luann taking on subjects such as kids having kids – a fear that I think resonated with many last week with Fay on the way to the Fuse. While it may be a thing that kids do, moralist that I am, I’m not ready for Luann becoming a venue that says it’s okay for kids to have kids.

    At this point, I’m not sure where to go with this “rant.” Clearly, Luann is a popular strip, usually garnering well over 200 comments a day. While a poor measure of readership, I still think it says something. So, the Evans are doing something right.

    But I like the summary given by others that we appear to have kids in college that don’t really resemble the college students we know today or were when we were in college. That, and not everyone goes to college, and for a variety of reasons.

    Heck, if a kid came to me about college today, I have to ask him or her the question: If you have to generate a house’s worth of non-collateralized debt that’s also unforgivable, is this the best choice at this time?

    Oh, heck! I ju

    Well, (gasp, horror!) – at least we’d have a story line!

    Mattro53: No, it’s worse. More of the stuff that kills than found in tobacco. It’s the lie that was sold in Colorado. Much like the lie that gambling would save our schools.

    But if Larry is here in Colorado, he might not have made a spelling error at all!
