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 . )

According to his Wikipedia page, Wiley Miller moved with his wife and four dogs from Santa Barbara, California to Kennebunkport, Maine, in 2004. He claims it's easier to get work done when the weather makes going outside not your first choice. Ironically, Kennebunkport is the location of the Bush family vacation compound.

I don't know what other comics the Dallas Morning News carries, but Nancy seems an odd choice to replace Non Sequitur. There are other strips that have some Far Side DNA that would seem a more natural choice. Maybe they were "over-correcting," figuring Nancy is unlikely to get the paper in trouble. 

"I don't know what other comics the Dallas Morning News carries, but Nancy seems an odd choice to replace Non Sequitur."

It's not the DMN that's replacing Non-Sequiter with Nancy; it's the Tacoma News Tribune and Olympian.

That is an odd choice, though.

...A belated thank you, Jeff. I speculated on Comics Kingdom 9n the past - I'm...did I say this above??? Well, Tscoma's in the same region as Portland so perhaps some spillover hipsters there!!!##
