Born and raised in the southwest U.S. Red Raider undergrad, then a Lobo. Transplanted to the east coast almost 20 years ago. Live and work in the DC area but don't hold it against me - I'm still a country boy at heart! Happily married to an artist and proud grampa to two boys. I'm told 1957 was a good year, but I really don't remember.

    Whether you like it or not, they are in fact migrating so the term fits.

    Not that it is in any way relevant to this comic, but I hate to just ignore blatant misinformation when so much damage is being done these days by bad information. It wasn’t the dems that added trillions to the national debt in just four years.

    Doesn’t look like a bedroom door though, but an exterior exit door. If the pirates have adopted fire safety codes, then exit doors open outward and the kids beat good ole’ Nate.

    I was thinking that too.

    Also a good point. Not only have both victims and bad guys said things that I ended up testifying to in court, a bullet fell out of a second victim who survived an attempted double homicide case once as we worked on them. Found it on the floor as we removed them from the ambulance at the trauma center.

    As a paramedic for over 30 years, I can say that that’s actually not that unreasonable. Although he didn’t articulate it, telling the EMT that a detective wants to talk to the victim when they’re able to speak also gets that message conveyed to the ED staff. I do agree that it would be weird for the chief of detectives to be on scene and asking questions at all, much less before the EMS unit has even left!

    And it’s all small stuff!

    Doesn’t it look like she’s about to pull off the Fata mask in the last frame? Methinks we’re about to see a big reveal that Fata is in fact… well, someone else, I’m guessing it’s someone else we know. But who will it be?

    No doubt, but there was a story line early in Duke’s relationship with Earl where Duke realized Earl’s mom was “a” stripper, but not which stripper, as Lawrence’s comment says.

    Thanks, I thought I remembered something along those lines.
