So far, calls / emails in favor of change

It's early yet, but in the first dozen responses to dropping "For Better or For Worse," the approvals have it.

A couple of folks called to say they were upset, but when they learned the continued comic isn't entirely new, they said they'd rather we continue searching for a replacement than run reworked or even revived old strips.

The Daily Cartoonist is asking people to report it on what's happening at papers around the country. Some are dropping, some continuing, some giving it a trial, some keeping it only online.

Here's the LA Times' plan, which calls for keeping it in limited form, at least for the next month or so, I believe.

Of course, this brings up the question of what to do with other strips that are in reruns or close enough, such as "Peanuts," "Dennis the Menace," "Marmaduke," "Blondie"... The difference, it appears, at least to readers, is the other strips don't have the continuing, involved storyline.

You think everyone is in favor of you dropping "For Better or Worse" in favor of these dregs of strips that you have fostered on us over the last few months.

Guess again. I only buy your paper for the comics and I DON'T like you dropping one of the consistently good strips.

No, I don't think everyone is in favor of dropping "For Better or For Worse." I merely said the early callers I talked to weren't so keen to keep reading the same strip over again.
