The Brooklyn Accent Free

Born two years after Charlie Brown's debut; mainframe geek for three decades for a great metropolitan bank, now semi-retired and keeping busy as a spelling and grammar geek for an investment company (with a couple of side gigs). I've identified with Charlie Brown as a kid, Mike Doonesbury in college, Dilbert at work, and Opus in my free time.

    Don’t the drops of sweat in the final panel constitute “stylized drawing”?

    I was stealing from Caulfield in a strip from several years ago. I don’t think he ever got an answer either.

    But oddly, she wears the same hat as always. What would she look like in a bathing cap?
