Did your newspaper get a little better this week?

There's a decent chance that it did. Cathy finally ended after I don't know how many years. One of our papers used to carry it and since it's gone they stuck Stone Soup in its place. Stone Soup might not be a top tier comic, but it's still fairly consistently funny.

I don't understand how Cathy was able to stay around for as long as it did. Every comic was the same "joke". Ohh gee life sure is crazy (and oddly full of stereotypes) for a modern woman. Yup, that was every single joke. OMG how many shoes do I own? surely I need more. Oh noes! it's summer, I have to wear a bathing suit now *fret*. Gosh, this sales lady is everywhere. Does she work at every store in existence or just the ones I shop in?

I suppose that wasn't too fair. Garfield has been running on the same gag for 30 years as well. Oh my, what a fat cat this is. And it'd be a nice change of pace if Family Circus actually had a gag of any sort. I often wish that Calvin and Hobbes were still in the comics section, but hey, at least I have fond memories of them as opposed to wishing they had ended it in their prime or shortly thereafter. I'm still miffed about Foxtrot bailing on dailies though. There aren't enough nerdy comic in newspapers. I mean sure Jeremy from Zits does a lot of texting, but Jason from Foxtrot was an actual factual geek.

Ok, that's enough ranting for one night. I'll catch you guys tomorrow or so.
