I'm not sure what is funnier to me today, the comic or your sig line about economists.
The dismal science indeed.
LOL!

Most excellent, Walt, thanks.

I've often wondered how Watterson's life changed after he hit the big time. After the initial thrill wore off, he must've driven his agent nuts.

Now all I need is Frank Cho's cliffhanger-resolution final strip to "Liberty Meadows".
