While 2022 yielding a red ripple instead of a red wave provided a glimmer of hope, I wouldn’t count on success in ’24. Gerrymandering gives the Regressives a big advantage in the House, the over-representation by small states gives ’em an advantage in the Senate, the Electoral College gives ’em an edge in the presidential race, & Americans are idiots.
Bring on the consequences!
All the more reason not to use the things. Walking will slow the aging process, and transit vehicles are a lot easier to get in and out of than private automobiles.
And the school year is only about a third over.

Were Jim and Pablo standing by Marlin after the commercial break, or was that the last we saw of one or both of them?
tRump does offer some value to society. One would do well to use the WWTD principle while navigating life – always ask yourself “what would tRump do?”, and do the opposite.
For a case in point, picture what tRump does when on an escalator – he stands there like some incapacitated blob. So whenever you use an escalator, don’t be as unfathomably lazy as Lardbutt – you’ll get up or down in a third of the time if you treat the escalator as a moving stairway rather than the world’s most boring ride.
If Captain Victorious submitted a résumé to work in that town at the nation’s second largest drug store, I imagine there could be a lot of confusion.
26.2 miles in 40,000 steps? Pretty long stride!
But I would never buy a book written by the friends of someone who clearly believes in standing on escalators. Is there anything lazier than standing on an escalator rather than dramatically speeding up that journey by walking up or down? (And even for the unfathomably lazy, wouldn’t a successful elevator trip involve at least two steps?)
I like carrots by themselves (I was munching on one as I clicked on this comic), but don’t like them in any other foods. So if there are carrots in, say, a salad, I’ll pick them out and eat them first so that they don’t “taint” the rest of the dish.
Cake of any kind? That I can do without.
Overpopulation is far less of a problem than greed and laziness. If you’re helpless without an automobile, you’re part of the problem. If you’re constantly chasing the latest fashions and/or trends and are compelled to always acquire more and more, you’re part of the problem. If you strive to “keep up with the Joneses”, you’re part of the problem. Insist on keeping your home temperatures in the 70s regardless of the weather? Ignore environmental impact when choosing what to eat or buy? Buy a lot of single-use products? Pay little attention to local recycling rules? Part of the problem, part of the problem, part of the problem, part of the problem.
Technological advances can keep up with population growth. But they can’t keep up with the unending demand for more, MORE, MORE!.
