“I’m not a towel—you’re a towel!”
My local paper. . . .where do I start? And “get out” while I still have my sanity? Well, not everyone can just pick up and move. No one should be shocked that there are papers that run this type of stuff. I remember being in Madison during the 1972 election and being shocked that McGovern did not win the presidency—because I and all of my friends believed so strongly in his campaign that we convinced ourselves he would win. I was in an echo chamber, and believed my dreams were real, just because I believed them. I am now in a large town/small city with a small locally owned paper that has as its main purpose the laudable goals of reporting on what the city and the county and the courts and the police are doing day in and day out, and also list the local obituaries and other stuff that helps a person get though the week. So I buy and read the paper and have to feast my eyes on Stiglich or Ramirez from time to time. But I also visit GoComics and see other cartoons and (thankfully) read the comments of others and that is one of the things that helps me keep hold of my sanity.
Patjade is the best researcher in this bunch. Hopefully she is listening and can fill the rest of us in!
Speaking of Stiglich—where is he? Can’t really say I miss him, but curiosity got to me, and now I can’t find him on GoComics, although his bile still shows up in our local paper.
Thanks for the update. The faithful return—and I like the new photo.
But we NEED to have this conversation every year. We need to re-examine ourselves and our motives. None of us now can do anything but work for today and tomorrow, but this type of conversation helps us in that work. Thank you for remembering, and thank you for re-starting the conversation for this year.
You got your messages mixed, Ramirez. THIS week you are supposed to be either racist (see Henry Payne) or ageist (see Lisa Benson). Lying about voter fraud comes NEXT week when it is closer to the election. How do you attack dogs expect to steal this election with such shoddy work? Read your RNC emails, people!
There used to be a depth to which no one would sink.
Once again, you support your comments with citations to news organizations a person can trust. You are my footnote hero! Keep it up! You are as important as any of these comics.
