    By the by, Microsoft pulled the Canadian French keyboard from Windows 11 (used to be in Windows 10). The so-called intermediate Canadian French keyboard was actually better for French than AZERTY.

    But alas, it’s gone, just the so-called basic Canadian French keyboard remains. And in it, a dead key is required to produce Ç.

    Now whose brilliant idea was that?

    I remember reading somewhere that the only people who typed faster on Dvorak were those who never learned QWERTY.

    That was the problem with Dvorak. It basically required experienced speed typists to start over, from scratch, and learn typing all over again.

    As for me, typing a lot of German, I use the QWERTZ keyboard, which is not all that different than QWERTY.

    But when I want to type French, I do not use the AZERTY keyboard; rather, I use the Swiss French keyboard, which is also QWERTZ.

    Now, if I had to type in a language that does not use Latin characters, I get it, I would have to learn a new keyboard – in addition to the new alphabet.

    I suppose the question really is, if it ain’t broke, why do we keep reinventing the wheel?

    In a way, this is starting to remind me of 1960s western shows.

    Men, as a rule, had no wives. They may have sons, never daughters (Bonanza, Rifleman), but never a mother for those sons.

    „Just don’t have time for womenfolk“ was a common line back then.

    Strangely going there in this strip.

    Portia Pig is the last female who had a story line. Yes, there was Flask. Jim and Sarah were a disaster.

    And Kirby keeps getting a cold shoulder from Aaron.

    If, as many argue, Trixie/Holly is no longer available, then why throw away the possibility of Kirby?

    While the Stephen Still song was about willfully committing adultery, there was another side to it.

    If the one you love can never come back, then why keep the rest of your life on hold?

    I think Wally, even Aaron, owes a bit more about what is going on with Kirby – and her possible future with Wally.

    Especially since I don’t think Aaron plans to resurrect Holly the way he resurrected Wally.

    A modicum of honesty from Eric Allee, or Scott, or whoever is in charge of this strip these days.

    My views exactly. While it might be nice to see Wally and Holly teamed up again, that would do injustice to Kirbee, another heroic character who has graced Wally’s life and, by now, should be every bit as important to him.

    Plus Chic and Irving.

    Wally can’t leave them behind now.

    I think that was the premise of „Who Framed Roger Rabbit“ as well: Toons can’t be killed!

    Les, yes.

    Gun, not so much.

    At least, towards Tiff.

    The look on his face in the last frame is priceless.

    He knows what’s going on.

    Like I said to jwmoracle above, the only time inflation is not the president’s fault is when the president is Republican.

    Or so the Republicans will say.
