All hail the Comics Curmudgeon

I've become completely addicted to reading the Comics Curmudgeon, a blog that dissects the daily comics. If you have any interest, I highly recommend it. It's turned me into a daily reader of Mary Worth, which is quite possibly the most demented strip ever, one that hides as a conventional soap opera about a nosy busybody. In the last few months, there's been a stalker who was a dead ringer for Capt. Kangaroo, an intervention, the drunken death of said stalker, busybody rivalries, prophetic dreams, and ... an examination of condo regulations. Really, who could possibly resist?

Also, the CC runs strip art like this, from Mark Trail:

Which really brings back fond memories of dinnertime with my family, talking about not killing beavers.
