    It’s a good thing Dr. Pearl is a “principle,” because this comics is otherwise devoid of them.

    OK Monica, no repeat gigs for you. You can now start your tom tom soundtrack. But more important question — When did Dr. Pearl go Yellowhair? Only her hairdresser knows for sure.

    Old Gil Thorp Reader: “I wish This strip would get with the times.”

    Henry Barajas: “OK, let’s make Keri non-binary and introduce a trans student.”

    OGTR: “NO NOT THAT WAY!”

    HB: “OK, let’s have Mimi consider a divorce.”

    OGTR: “NO NOT THAT WAY!”

    HB: “OK, then a National Anthem prote…”

    OGTR: “NO NOT THAT WAY!”

    HB: “OK, Valley Tech Will now wear teal uniforms with yellow trim, and Dr. Pearl gets new glasses.”

    OGTR: “Now we’re talkin’!”

    Thank you for that acknowledgement Monica. Please feel free to excuse yourself from singing the national anthem if you deem it to be offensive, after all it is a free country despite its faults, flaws, failings and imperfections. If it is such a horrible place to be, why do we have scenes like those on the southern boarder and not like those in Russia at this moment? Native Americans have been wronged and despicably treated. The issues are complex and cannot simply be summed up in one sentence. None of use were here when these events took place, so the implied rage, anger and blame the in that statement has little impact on the audience. Implying guilt by association only puts people on the defensive and shuts down any real opportunity for open dialogue that creates broad, informed awareness that will lead to meaningful change. The past is done and cannot be changed. What we learn from each other and act on to create a better future would seem to be more constructive.

    Just because you wandered in here 15,000 years ago and found it unoccupied doesn’t mean it’s yours forever. As with the rest of the world since history began, battles were fought and you lost. Now you have casinos and a steady income stream. Move on.

    I cannot wait for tomorrow . anxious to see just how ridiculous this strip can become : can’t spell “principal” ?;“YellowHair” means the Chickie’s hair on top of her head is the color yellow(remember “Smiles A lot” on Dancing With Wolves ?)He smiled a lot. And how many storylines do we need to have going at one time: Gil & Mimi love on the rocks; Thorp and Martinez families vying to be modern-day Hatfield’s and McCoy’s; Coach Kaz moving to —-could it be …Valley Tech ???; now, we discover Milford is built on “stolen” native land .

    Time to go full Joker, Monica. Don’t even bother with what I assume is likely to be the Star Spangled Banner, especially the fourth stanza. Think more Woody Guthrie…

    One of Custer’s nicknames was Yellowhair and he may have fathered two children with a Native American woman. Maybe Monica is a descendant of Custer, wouldn’t that be ironic, of course in a totally fictitious world of GT

    To me it’s not the fact that these issues are being brought up, there has always been content about current events or personal story lines in this strip. It’s that it’s a different issue every day with no follow through. Since the changing of the guard, we have read hints about Mimi wanting a divorce, that a previous student is enrolling their transgender child, that Keri is non binary and now the National Anthem protest. Oh and let’s not forget the charming new coach from the rival team. Please, just pick a storyline and follow it to a conclusion.

    P 4: bzzzt…..squelch…muffled voices…a quieted audience, as chief yellowhair’s microphone and amplifier are abruptly disconnected and two burly security staff members drag her off the stage to the sound of Pearl’s screeching voice “…you’re out of this school!…you hear me Sitting Bull?….you’re done!…get her a$$ out of here!…”

    Hey, I’m surprised nobody commented about the guy who brought the peacock. It’s Abel Brito! He must have saved the library so much dough that they had plenty of money to buy a peacock. And speaking of saving, I hoped you saved enough time to read today’s Mopped Up Thorp.
