    Three different sandwiches, a salad, cake, ice-cream and hot chocolate? I know I’d eat on the kitchen floor for a meal like that.

    I guess at that time, people didn’t know chocolate, even hot chocolate, is toxic for dogs.

    For a moment there, I wondered if ol’ Sparky was wading into the civil rights debate.

    My daughter & I watched “Green Book” yesterday; this reminds me of the scene when Doc was performing in Birmingham.

    Interesting. I always assumed that the Snoopy dance was introduced on TV

    “While he did not plan to be a professional musician or composer, Musorgsky (alternate spellings: Mussorgsky, Moussorgsky) wrote several outstanding masterpieces that became the source of inspiration for future generations of composers and musicians in Russia and abroad.”

    Is anyone concerned about the inadvertent message sent by the last panels? Panel 5 could be any black entertainer through the 50’s and 60’s (in my life time) – “I’m good enough to entertain them but not good enough to eat in the same room with them.” And when Snoopy accepts the kitchen he consoles himself saying “Pride is a foolish thing.”

    I don’t want to believe Schulz was racist, in fact we know he broke the color barrier in comics when he introduced Franklin in July, 1968. But the original print date for this strip is March 15, 1953. So is this an unfortunate gaff? Or insight into the very early faith of a man who drew hundreds of cartoons around prayer and scripture but only tens concerning kicking a football? Maybe this does reflect Schulz’s upbringing in the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s, but as he grew in his faith in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, he learned more about being like Christ.

    Pride may well be the one sin God hates the most, but it’s also the one sin Christians seem to be willing to overlook the most. But depending on an individual’s background, that is, their education, environment, and life experiences, prejudice may be what we have the next hardest time recognizing and overcoming, while also being more hurtful to others.

    Isn’t pride at the root of prejudice? And while we could learn to not be racist, we could still have pride in many other aspects of our life. So maybe Snoopy is technically right when he says “Pride is a foolish thing.” But resisting being proud, is no reason to accept differential treatment. Rather it’s reason to learn to not treat others differently. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Or as it’s written in the King James – “And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise.” Luke 6:31

    Love that first panel, with the different sizes of the kids. Schroeder was a baby not long ago, but he’s catching up. Lucy is still smaller than she will be.

    I’m a lifelong classical music lover and collector – but Mussorgsky’s Hopak didn’t even ring a bell! Sparky would surprise us with his knowledge of classical music since Peanuts began.
