Since I was a little fellow, I have followed the newspaper comics…and politics. I had little choice. Every morning from early JHS my father would grab the sports, my mother the style section, so I could read the WaPo or WashStar A section, Metro section, or comics.
I have always enjoyed political or commentary type cartoons. I have enjoyed Doonesbury for decades, I loved Bloom County, and I am still sitting shiva for Calvin and Hobbs.
Recently, I developed an affection for the strip Boondocks, and while I was disappointed when it went on hiatus I had it’s return in October to look forward to.
Now, however, it seems that may not happen. Instead, it is delayed indefinitely.
And that’s why I am bummed.
