I have to wonder if - with today's installment of Candorville - Lemont (and series author Darrin Bell) isn't being a tad too optimistic with panel five about the indigenous peoples of North America if the American Revolution hadn't come off as it did in reality. We'd still have people who thought like Sir John A. Macdonald and Duncan Campbell Scott and Philip Sheridan did, although the specific people in power enforcing such atrocities as settlers' law would likely be different.

As for the rest of it?

Reminders went out that today is the anniversary of the first published strip in Charles Schulz' comic strip Peanuts.

I find myself in want of a root beer right now.

(Also, wishing I could've thanked Mr. Schulz directly for his works.)

More on other topics as the day progresses, hopefully...

I've noticed that Sinfest and Doonesbury have dedicated fandom groups/feeds here on LJ. Does the same go for Norm Feuti's Retail?

Anyone?

...has an interesting take on caf├ęs, reminding me of high school in some ways.

More on other topics as the day wears on...

Fixed as of tonight.

Tried to check today's installment at retailcomic.com. Nothing. On either Firefox or Safari. Looked at the comic strip's Facebook page, and apparently Feuti and co. have been coping with website glitches for a while now.

Maybe it'll be fixed by the time I get back from the day job today.

I can relate. Some days, more so than others. Even though I take public transit everywhere I can...

Some of us have been following this particular serial within a serial for a while now...and Wired's Underwire blog has some interesting backstory stuff for you today.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ms_danson for this.

It took me a week to get around to watching.

Worth the wait.

It seems inevitable, and yet still somehow cruel. And I'm not sure who's aiming the cruelty at whom in this instance.

I've been reminded that today in 1922 was the date of Charles "Sparky" Schulz' birth.

Whatever the security blanket of your choosing, I wish you well.

I just read this piece on Johnston's apparent about-face on her plan to retire For Better Or For Worse this morning.

Mrs. Johnston, I trust that you'll forgive me for being more than slightly shocked at this. Both the cancellation of the retirement of the daily strip and the plans to retire character aging as a rule of the series. It doesn't make sense to me at all.
