    Like I said, the polite thing is not to LEAD OFF your conversation with a personal insult. But then I know well that every Internet bulletin board has its share of jerks. (I use the term as a euphemism for the stronger term that I have in mind.) Flame throwers are everywhere. You just have to put up with them.

    Thank you! It’s very good to get confirmation that this is a tolerant board where people disagree politely and don’t lead with sneering sarcasm or gratuitous personal insults. (It may of course come to that. I’ve been on the brink of insulting a few of the Trump trolls who post here myself, so I judge not!)

    Geez people, one careless phrase and suddenly I’m a pariah here! OK, I speak only for myself. Sorry, should have added that disclaimer at the beginning, and shouldn’t have said “The Doonesbury Audience.” Will 39 lashes with a cat-o-nine-tails satisfy your lust for blood?

    Slapstick doesn’t really appeal to the Doonesbury audience. We like the sharp satire. (Who was it who said, “Satire is what closes on Saturday night”?)

    I’ve forgotten just what Mike’s office was all about. What did he do for a living?

    I could never figure Zonker out. Sometimes he’s as naive as a child. Well, OK, most of the time. But here he’s the sage marriage counselor.

    You see the lengths we guys will go to in order to avoid a confrontation! Mike’s behaving in typical guy fashion. If he were a woman, he’d avoid the confrontation by sulking and insisting that nothing was wrong when his partner asked if something was wrong. How do we ever manage to reproduce ourselves? Or get a cup of coffee at Starbucks with our partners?

    That’s pretty much my view. I look over the Presidents from the past century, and I can name only one or two who were not guilty of violations of the sovereignty of other nations (Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Jimmy Carter are the only ones that come to mind. All the others fomented revolutions that resulted in the violent overthrow of governments, often democratically elected governments.) Obama hasn’t succeeded in doing that yet, unless you count Libya, but it’s not for lack of trying.

    Setting a real precedent, Reagan got on TV and said he couldn’t believe they had actually done that, but he admitted that’s what the facts said they actually did. Well, fortunately, as President, he knew nothing about it, so he was innocent. And it made not the slightest difference to his adoring supporters. Wait a minute! There is something familiar about this. But I’ve been out of touch with what’s going on for the past month…

    Ah, I’ve been expecting this.
