I am thirty-one years old. For Better or For Worse has been running for twenty-nine years. It was one of the first comic strips I read (along with Calvin & Hobbes and Garfield) and today it is ending--at least as we know it. It has never been hilarious in vain the of C & H or cooky like Far Side. FBoFW is a gentle humor that guided us through the lives of the Pattersons. All the characters I've wondered about, and grew up beside are just . . . over. Is it stupid to be sad about loosing my daily ties with Canada?

I think I have connection problems. I cried--literally cried--when Mr. Rogers died. I love him.
Thank goodness for re-runs and re-prints!
