I didn't entirely get the intended construction of the jokes in the Sunday Bizzaro (Sp??) strip yesterday .   ( The strip appars to be not online , as it is a King Features Syndicate strip , who - Gasp !!! - appear to think they're in the comics business to make money , and keep their strips behind a wall . )

  The joke was " variations on ' I Love New York ' "...but was the panhandler's shirt supposed to be saying " I Owe New York " ?"  I Have Zero , New York " ?

  The yokel , in Middle Ages garb...Was his shirt suppost'a mean " I Love York " , as in the English county that New York was indeed named after ??? ( And Prince Charles is now considered the Duke of , if I recall correctly . )

You'd think that having been Tracy's partner since 1948, Sam would know when Tracy's birthday was.

Can you imagine Chester Gould's humor strips?

The Dallas Morning News dropped Mallard Fillmore last week due to reader requests.

This week, they devoted the themed letters to those who protested the decision.

Frankly, if I thought a letter would have helped get that stinker removed, I would have written years ago. 

From time to time, any given newspaper is in the position of wanting/needing to drop a strip, which they tend to put off as long as possible because it will be in for a lot of bellyaching from that strip's readers.

In a previous conversation here about that phenomenon, somebody mentioned how his local newspaper handled it, which I thought was eminently sensible: Don't drop the strip that draws the most complaints; drop the one that has the fewest defenders.

That said, if I thought a letter would help get Mallard Fillmore out of one of my local newspapers, I'd write one every day. (But that particular paper is so terrible I never read it anyway.)
