12 years later you could run today’s comic unchanged. Very sad.
And now it’s been 20 years, and nothing’s changed.
Huh, I just realized this strip was published on my 7th birthday.
published a couple weeks off my 5th birthday 🙂
A few months before my 7th birthday 😀
You are all making me feel as old as Llewellyn-I was 45 when this was published-old enough to be a grandfather to all of you young whippersnappers! Definitely gives a different perception of the intent of the strips when you know exactly what Dana is referring to-way to radical to be published in many papers-although similar in view to Walt Kelly’s Pogo and a few others that managed sly digs at the establishment.
Walt Kelly’s digs were “sly?” Dude was about as subtle as a greeting card delivered via cruise missile! But still one of the greats; we can see some of his influence in Ms. Simpson’s work, I believe.
Heck, I wasn’t even alive when this strip was published!
My grandmother used to be a secretary in Charles Shultz building. She once mistook him for a garbage man, and he never let her forget it.
Sorry, I meant to post that on the next strip. My mistake. Just mentally move it there.
for the record… I was in college
A couple weeks before my 42nd (March 5).
In 1970 there was a partial solar eclipse in Maple Heights two days after my 12th (it was the one memorialized in the lyric “flew your Learjet to Nova Scotia to see a total eclipse of the sun”). My birthday cake that year featured the spectacle.
I was an old lady of 12 1/2. 😉
Yes, I do.
I think we all, on some subconscious level, want to hear Millie’s impression of Elvis sucking helium.
Most dictators are NOT backed by the U. S. Look at the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Iran, etc.
