For help on how to follow a comic title,
My daughter had long hair, which she cut off to donate to Locks of Love. I thought after that she looked like the little girl from Inside Out. However, I never made mention of that as I felt her new look reflected how she was beautiful on the inside.
Guess I am the dissenter today. I think Elizabeth’s new hairstyle looks good.
Mrs. Enjo did not throw a fit when Dawn shaved the sides of her head.
Some have noticed that Phil’s wife Georgia looks like a big April. On closer look I agreed that Georgia did look eerily how April probably would as a full-grown woman.
There are a scant number of kids who have a strange belief which is alien to many of their classmates: they think the point of going to school is to learn something! :)
D.C. statehood is a cause in disfavor with the overwhelming majority of Congress regardless of party affiliation. Given the District’s high crime, rampant corruption and public schools that are at the bottom of the barrel, it makes for a very unattractive 51st state.
Reminds me of one strip about Michael:
Lawrence: “Today is our first day of junior high. Even so, I can’t help feeling strange. We have been going to the same school for six years and now we are in a whole new environment.”
Michael: “Fine by me. I am glad to be away from the little kids.”
Michael and Lawrence walk by some football players who look down upon them literally, then some girls who look gigantic
Lawrence: “Something tells me we are the little kids.”
Good one! I wonder if Lynn Johnston is aware of that one. Of course, asking many people about that cartoon today they probably mistake it for the Smurfs! :)
A lot did happen then. 1978 was the Year of the Three Popes. (Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II).
There was a cautionary cartoon about that, where a group of students are seen inside a classroom disciplined and working quietly. Outside the classroom one guy is lounging around with a beer in hand. The professor is sticking his head outside the second story window, dropping a cartoon bomb with an “F” on it (denoting flunking, of course) directly onto the loafer. The caption read:
“Professors are not babysitters. If you do not do the work they are going to fail you and wash their hands of you. Case closed.”
