    Nice one. As a veteran who served 22 years, I almost didn’t notice what day it was.

    You are correct, government spending/money policy CAN cause inflation, and there has been a lot of that trying to dig us out of Trump’s COVID fiasco.

    But BD has a point, too. Part of inflation is the expectation that prices will rise, and it is quite possible that (some) companies are using that expectation as cover for their price increases.

    After all, as the supply chains and other causes of price increases have come back down to earth, that prices continue to increase in spite of reduced cost does lead to questions.

    Let’s just say that government spending/money policy is not the only cause of inflation.

    Not often you see the Wiley Bears get the short end of the stick!

    Like Bullwinkle, when he pulled Rocky out of the hat,

    “This time, for sure!”

    Followed by,

    “Well, I’m gettin’ close!”

    My final comments on this arc:

    Last week, people pooh-poohed the possibility that the CPR incident would be a dream sequence.

    I think a dream sequence would have been a much better ending than what we’ve been served:

    Luann just declared her career:

    Professional Student!

    The most curious irony is that the so-called Oxford comma is unique to English; it is not found in Spanish, French, German and, to my knowledge, any other European language.

    Most curious: English is a mash-up of French and German, neither French nor German have the Oxford comma, yet English does. Who the Sam Hill came up with that, anyway?

    Lawyers?

    Actually, lawyers do.

    Not just a British quirk; apparently, it’s required in our English, too.

    Many an urban legend, when the Oxford comma is forgotten in wills, this results in bizarre distributions of assets from estates.

    Something to the effect of one person’s share is now equal in status to the sum of the shares of the other two people, all because that one comma was forgotten.

    Saw some discussion earlier about time.

    This saga began 09-Nov-2018. We saw a clock set to 3:01. We learned a couple weeks ago that the current time is 3:06.

    Most of all, we have Kirby’s words, that Wally and company have been gone only a few minutes – though it seemed like years to her (and was at least 5 years for us).

    On another note: Good to see Terrence stepping up. Up to now, it often seemed like he was just “along for the ride.” That said, others have questioned his loyalty – a former topsider who changed against his will.

    But didn’t they all? Aren’t all the “mutants” in this story, didn’t they all change against their own will?

    I’m thinking only Jim and Sarah changed voluntarily.

    And we saw how that turned out.
