Funny in a painful way

The weekend's "Madam & Eve" from South Africa. Nice dig on Mugabe, who has driven Zimbabwe into quite a hole in the past decade, from supplying food to other southern African countries to not being able to feed its own people, from a growing black middle class to driving millions into desperate poverty.

It's not even 8:30 and I've already spent an hour on the ice AND I'm both riled and caffeinated. Look out!

Why did the Gazette drop For Better or For Worse. I miss this strip. I now read it on the internet. Is this how I have to get my comics now? Jerry

We dropped it because it is going into reruns. Yes, some strips will be redrawn and sometimes there will be new dialogue, but it's the same story. We already run plenty of family strips and plenty of strips that tell the same story.

That said, if readers would rather see For Better or For Worse than one of the other older, repeat-style strips, you all should let me know.

You have kept running peanuts.

Bring me a strip that kids like as much as Peanuts and I'll give that strips the space currently occupied by Peanuts. Peanuts also doesn't replace strip for strip entire storylines, which makes it easier to pop in and out of. But, bottom line, nothing ranks as high with our youngest readers.
