If it was easy, they'd call it hockey.

That's a shout out to my curling friends.

And here's one to my curling friends who also play hockey (Sean, Amy, Heather, Alyssa):

Bring back Bucky!

I love to hear from comics readers. Even when they're ticked off!!

And most of The Gazette readers who have called this week are ticked that "Get Fuzzy" is on the "space available" list and they've only seen it once.

So, I'm actively seeking a spot for it on the comics pages.

What's gotta go, folks?

What can go so that we can all check in with Bucky, Satchel and Rob each morning!?

Today's missing strips

For you fans missing your fix of today's "Get Fuzzy," "F Minus" and "Rose is Rose," here they are.

I've gotten a few calls lamenting we didn't pick up "The Knight Life," and comments - see above - about "Deflocked."

I'm even getting initial feedback - mixed - on "Rip Haywire," which I didn't expect for a week or more.

Keep the comments coming, I'm still watching to see how much space we'll get day to day.

I'll need to take a look at the Sunday comics, too. Not for space - it'll remain the same cramped pages - but for lineup.

Gazette reader makes Cartoonist blog

Today's Your Space column by Andrea Brown, which featured a Gazette reader who is tired of all the changes to his newspaper, made the top item on today's Daily Cartoonist blog.

I've had a few comments on the space-available comics, mostly from "Get Fuzzy" fans. Warren Epstein (entertainment) yelled across the newsroom earlier: "Did we kill Bucky!?" Someone had called wondering whether the strip was dropped.

No, it's still with us - when we can fit it in.

I'm open to suggestions, though. Should "Get Fuzzy" make the regular lineup and something else go to the "space available" list?

Let me know!

Mike and Ike

Total sight gag, but I've looked at it and laughed 5 or 6 times today.

Who has chewed (and chewed) a Mike and Ike and wondered, "Mike and Ike?"

Of all the Mikes and all the Ikes (OK, name more than 3)...


Funny zombies

Thanks to Darby Conley for the "Shaun of the Dead" shout out in today's paper. My son and I love that movie! And for the dig at movie reviewers - not critics, reviewers - who go on and on and on about a film's lack of meaning. As if entertainment weren't enough reason to make a movie!

That Phillip riff gets me every time. And Queen playing in the pub when the group whacks the zombies.
