    Two-wheel ride in falling rain

    Road grown slick. This is insane.

    There is traffic up ahead

    Tracy follows, causing dread.

    Memory seems to forget

    How it feels to take a hit.

    Wheels go out from under him

    Future looking dark and grim.

    Walter flies free of the louse

    Scans the field for his next mouse.

    Sam has called the EMTs

    Get the wizards if you please.

    Good morning™, everyone!

    Alright, so Tracy didn’t solve the case all by himself. He had helpers in the department. I’m not sure what Mr. Memory “did perfectly” to avoid being traced, but it’s apparent that his computer may have given him away. I still think that his parole officer likely knows where he was living.

    Yeah, it’s too bad we didn’t get a few more details of how Tracy tracked him down. Maybe Ray is right that Mike doesn’t know those details.

    well, that’s the end of THAT… this whole arc crashed and burned… now on to the next storyline starting tomorrow, I’m guessing from this limp ending…

    This has got to be the most boring crime ever! The only thing that made this story exciting was the food!

    Gotta be honest, this story started promising but all it’s holes quickly deflated it.

    Pride and arrogance has led to many a downfall…

    Is anyone else really bothered by the Crimestoppers today? That’s never something that I would want to see as a “useful” tip.

    Good morning™, tipsy tumblers !

    I like how the colors in the throwaway represent which officer is who. A$$ over teakettle, just like that. The bike looks bigger today. P. 4. Walter is true blue after all. Time for him to join the mennajury over at the Plenty place unless they let Memory be a one bird “birdman of Alcatraz”.

    I don’t recall them tracing or figuring anything out, they just went to the house of the first crook they could think of that was good with computers. It sure is helpful that these criminals keep fleeing / trying to murder Tracy / otherwise implicating themselves to spare Dick the hassle of having to investigate!

    If Mr. Memory is so smart, why did he think he could outrun a police cruiser on a bike that had a 50cc engine?

    Crimestopper comment: Training for average folk is Escape as first choice. Hide if escape is not possible. Fight if you have no other option. First responders are supposed to have a different order of priorities… (Some manage that better than others.)

    The so-called “plan” to use B. O. Plenty came out of nowhere. We saw nothing of it. Until it was actually mentioned by B. O., all we ever saw was that the Plenty family was trying to be nice to their new neighbor, and he, in turn, was more or less exasperated by their interruptions, even though he did sort of appreciate the food.

    And, “computer wizards” notwithstanding, it wasn’t the technology that pointed Tracy to Memory, it was a video cam at one of the ATMs. As far as we ever saw, Tracy still doesn’t know how the bank thefts were accomplished.

    I hate to say it, but this story really didn’t make much sense at all. (Unless we’re not done yet – maybe Mike is throwing us a curve ball.)

    Maybe this is a new approach to Tracy, where he just chases the baddies if they look suspicious? Will he be renamed Dick Chasey? I for one and looking for cameos by Mario Andretti, Tom Slick and the entire touring company of WACKY RACES

    OK, I missed something. B.O. Plenty still thinks the telegraph is high technology. How was Memory going to use him to “cover his tracks” in a computer crime?

    I certainly hope Tracy is lying. I think his real break was Cinnamon Knight coming forward as an informant, and he’s covering for CK by pretending police cybercrime people broke Memory’s system.

    I don’t actually think that. I just think my ending is better than “Someone else solved the crime offscreen and Tracy just made the arrest.”

    Calling in some questions, what about those glasses with the hypnotic effect will they be found at his house? What computer program was he working on? What did the money go for? I trust Tracy and Sam will get a warrant for his house to provide some answers.

    1-MEMORY: TIME TO BAIL! TRACY WON’T BE ABLE TO FOLLOW ME OVER HERE!

    2- …Hmmmm. I underestimated him.

    3-Time to change strategy YOU RAN ME OFF THE ROAD…

    4-… I’LL HAVE YOU UP ON FELONY ASSAULT CHARGES!

    5-DT: What? Are you thinking that the immediate presence of EMT personnel suggests that I was planning on you being injured or killed? Perish the thought… OR JUST PERISH! Hit the road EMT. Mr. Memory looks ok to me.

    MEMORY: WAIT! I WAS JOKING! I’LL CONFESS! WALTER WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING! ALL HIS IDEA! I WAS AN UNWILLING PAWN IN HIS PLAN!

    WALTER: !!!!!!! FINK!

    The downfall of Mr. Memory and his Great Cyber-Scheme!

    Possibly “just” a broken leg; and Walter has remained faithful, perched again on Memory’s right shoulder in the penultimate panel. But the fallen villain is still full of rage, especially directed at Tracy, who passes it off with equanimity.

    Can this be the end, likewise, of this whole story? There are so many major loose ends, including (but not limited to) the fate of the five plundered banks, the disposition of the stolen money (whatever remains of it), Memory’s instructions to B.O. (what happens if he doesn’t type in the codeword? What happens if he does, for that matter?), etc. Maybe there is still a coda to this tale?

    I have to say that I really enjoyed this villain. Kudos to Team Tracy for bring him back from the 1967 pilot. Especially great job to Shelley for rendering him so well. I’ve enjoyed going back and researching Victor Buono’s short but interesting career.
