    Now even the comics are going Spanish. I’m sure this will probably outrage some, but I for one am tired of English being slowly supplanted as the common language of the US. And yes, I am well aware the US does not have an official language.

    I couldn’t have been the only person who turned to the Spanish version to see what it looked like, but the latest strip is from January 31st. I have to wait six months to see how this will play in the Spanish version?

    In the meantime, people can cut out this strip from their newspaper to use as rolling papers.
