Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for August 30, 1999
Nate: I can't believe we're going back to school already! This is August, for Pete's sake! Have we all gone mad?? Nate: The entire school board should be run out of town! Would it kill them to give us a few more days of freedom? Nate: Actually, school doesn't start 'til tomorrow. Francis: He's rehearsing. Nate: How was that?
