    Judge Doom bought the streetcar company so he could dismantle it.

    A full classics update for the 23rd:

    Hallowe’en strikes in the Alley, and the gang wants to scare Uncle Walt… Hipshot has some history with Sudden DeMise, but he doesn’t do law enforcement … Brenda’s career gets stiffed as Livwright hands the next big story to Chuggie … and Slim reaches his limit on helping people get their luggage down from the shelf.

    How about “Electro Metro”? Got a catchy ring to it.

    They don’t want the town named after fossil fuels, yet the town is mainly comprised of old fossils

    From today’s Comics Curmudgeon:

    In 1918, when this strip began, most American cities, even small ones, had electric streetcar networks. These were only beginning to be displaced by the increasingly popular personal automobile, which hobbyists tinkered with in areas dubbed things like “Gasoline Alley.” I think it would be a fitting end to the strip if they put a light rail line down the middle of the town and it magically allowed Walt to finally, blessedly die, or maybe just non-magically ran him over.

    I’m not taking advice from a grown man who reacted to bad news by taking to his (twin-size) bed like a toddler throwing a tantrum.

    In other words, the new name was chosen by a MACHINE and not a human being. Razzberries!!

    And I thought “Gasoline Alley” was the name of the garage.

    Hire Joel&Rufus to move the computer who made that decision across town.
