    Well, it’s no Rube Goldberg, but I gotta admit I kinda like it.

    Leaving the various commercial products available aside, Ed never considered just putting wire mesh over the gutters and cleaning them off when needed?

    Well, for once I agree with Lillian. After all, it’s not starting out well.

    The comic strip or the snack?

    “Is this a leaf blower I see before me?”

    “When shall we three meet again, in thunder, in lightning, or in Dale Evans?”

    “If it were done when ’tis done, then ’twere well it were done quickly” (Batiuk never learned that one, obviously).

    Well, at least we got that trope out the way quickly enough. Plenty of room for more “Pop” Clutch’s ghost tomorrow, I guess.

    So, this “story” is going to wrap up on a rehash of the Sept. 3 “joke” (Ed trying for a record number of stopped cars behind him), with the added gem that Ed’s sociopathic misanthropy directly contributed to the death of his colleague and mentor. What a delightful strip. No wonder folks out there rush to defend it.

    “Something is rotten in the state of Ohio.”

    “To bus or not to bus, that is the question.”

    “Get thee to a bowling alley!”

    “This above all, to Silver Age Flash comics be true.”

    “Gee, just like when you take a photograph of something or put something in print. What a novel idea!”

    So we’ve gone from “Ed Is Visited by His Mentor’s Ghost” to “Ed Takes at Least Three Days to Explain the Internet to His Mentor’s Ghost.” Fascinating.

    Umm, you delivered the “joke” that “Pop’s” spectre is unaware of social media yesterday, TB. How many more times are you going to reinforce it?

    Also, did Ed just get through the names of all those sites with a malaprop? That’s more unbelievable than a ghost showing up.
