    Agreed Izzy, in fact since this strip is from November 1987 I bet that Mr Binkley could find other “investments” which promise a very big and rapid return on his hard earned coin. Of course, a lot of times this kind of “investment” caught the attention of your friends Sonny and Tubbs and the rest of the gang. A typical plot for a stand alone episode of Vice: Tom Binkley and Steve Dallas try to nail one big score down in Miami-Dade and find out that there is no such nothing as “free” money in Miami. Nonetheless, Tom would have a heck of a time partying on South Beach and in Coconut Grove before the powers that be put a stop to it while Steve would probably end up as collateral damage

    Banning Noam is sacrilege in my book, anyone’s book who has a humanitarian view of the world. I did a check on the web and while Noam has been censured and criticized by many, I do not see where he was told he was “persona non grata”….. Then again, I usually read TNR and Mother Jones followed by listening to some news from WMNF which covers issues close to home here in Tampa and across FL! Still I find the claim of banning Noam dubious if not idiotic! The guy is a voice of freedom y’all!

    So G&K do establish that this strip is set in SoCal, hey guys, which county? San Diego, Orange, Riverside, LA or Ventura???? I used to think like Huntington Beach in Orange County (place where a rich girl like Tiff could live but also the mid class, it worked in the ‘90s but not now) but now in 2024 maybe up in Oxnard or inland toward Bakersfield, what do y’all think?

    hmofo813, I will look into “The Nation” as you have given it your thumbs up, I tend to get tunnel vision on sites like Mother Jones and TNR and forget that there are other outlets which deserve the support of progressive and common sense citizens of planet earth! Thanks for the tip.

    I have been known to read Harpers from time to time as well. Vanity Fair occasionally puts out good exposes as well.

    You have a point about MSNBC, I should have stated of the major news outlets available, MSNBC was overall the most to the left with the exception of some of the PBS programming as well as NPR. Certain shows on MSNBC have had decent content though others like Morning Joe are not that interesting to me except back in the day when Mika would wheel her Dad Zbigniew onto the set and he would promptly make Joe look foolish though he himself was a warhawk in the Carter admin and a bit right of center overall too. However guys like Brzezinski would be welcome today as he did recognize the danger of people like Putin. MSNBC did run Chris Matthews after the openly pro DNC tool went after Bernie in 2020. That is something CNN or other establishment outlets would have never done. MSNBC is far from perfect but better than CNN……

    In a nutshell, if you want good, balanced , honest journalism presented with integrity; read publications like Mother Jones, TNR, Slate and listen to NPR and community radio. Be the Media is a good Green Party podcast. Dissent magazine offers interesting content from around the world.

    Reagan was in the White House and Bush was about to make his run for the White House as standing VP, not exactly liberal or Rockefeller republicans but yes there was still more communication and even compromise from the right and left for sure. Heck even Ron Reagan and Tip O’Neil would unwind over drinks at the White House. That would never happen in 2024.

    Marjorie Stoneman Douglas gave the convocation address at USF Tampa for the graduating class of 1989. The lady gave a wonderful talk at the age of 99 with lots of advice for the graduates and dire warnings of what was happening in Florida. Her epic book The Everglades: River of Class is required reading across many disciplines at Florida Universities as well as state and community colleges. A remakable lady, years ahead of her time.

    BTW, the shooting at the Broward school, the school’s resource officer, who was armed, cowardly remained outside during the shooting. He resigned in disgrace and was later charged but recently was acquited. The sheriff, Israel, was removed from office by the governor for ignoring red flags and general ineptitude. Others on scene including a captain for the Broward Sheriff resigned as well. This captain ordered officers to form a perimeter around the school building instead of going inside. Coral Springs Police finally entered the building 5 minutes after the shooter left. What a mess…. The heroes were the teachers and students who saved lives by sacricing their own. One young ROTC student was posthumously admitted to West Point, a rare honor.
