    Silly me, Lillian. Here and I thought it would remind you of how you jealously hid a love letter Eugene wrote to your sister Lucy and thus prevented them from being together, with said action eventually driving poor Lucy down a life of despair and regret with you, the “ever-devoted” sibling, her only emotional “support.” But no, you think about the beach instead, you cold-hearted harpy.

    A weeklong arc primarily focusing on how wonderful the old-time movie theatre wooden armrests were before those young whippersnappers added nuisances like padding and cupholders. You have to step back and marvel at the sheer gall that a comic strip creator with 50-plus years of work under his belt would foist this on his reading public. To paraphrase Dorothy Parker, “His arrogance was an Empire State Building of arrogance. You had to admire it for its size.”

    A nationally syndicated humor strip other than “The Family Circus” using a “Made you look!” joke as its punchline. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: OH, FOR THE LOVE OF…!

    If you mean the second Mrs. Kane, Susan Alexander, “opera singer” should be in quotes.

    By the way, who’s watching Max and Hannah’s son, Mitch?

    Yes, what twentysomething/thirtysomething woman doesn’t love hearing from her grandfather’s girlfriend that Orson Welles gets them in the mood for romance? Also, how wonderful for business that Hannah and Max’s time is spent catering to a pair of nonpaying customers.
