Cartoon of the Week: Not Your Ratty Ol’ Photocopy

 

 

 


 

In Sunday’s A Figure from the Common Lot, Peas in a Pod: part two, Richard finds work and recalls the accident that broke his family. On Monday, a poem, “Decoration Day”. Also Monday, Adventures in Research: Garfield Edition, featuring some of the ambience of 1881. A new short story debuted Tuesday, “The Ad Said”, in which a bid for independence goes off the rails. Wednesday, another Assorted Opinions… “What Can You Laugh At”, raises the question of putting boundaries on hypersensitivity.
Up Thursday, the ongoing translation of La Catastrophe de la Martinique, with Hess as eyewitness, describing the appearance of the volcano. Friday, the sixth entry in The German Spy arc of The Folly — the assassin, Falco, a dangerous man to lose control of. On Saturday, a Yoharie episode, “Old Flames”, in which Yoharie himself ruminates on past and present.
Images on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
