The Showdown Poll: 'Judge Parker' vs. No Chance of Parole

Today, The Post announces its funnypage changes in the print edition. But Comic Riffs readers have had the chance to vote informally for their fave of five dropped Post comic strips -- or to check "none of the above" -- for a week now. (A sixth, "Brevity," was later announced.) And with more than 150 comments and nearly 900 votes in, the clear favorite was still "Judge Parker."

So now the question goes out to all readers, in a head-to-head mega-showdown. Judge Parker vs., well, oblivion.

In the hopes that Post Management will throw a life preserver to at least one dropped strip IF enough readers respond in unison, you can participate in today's non-binding poll. With a week till D-Day, "Judge Parker" needs as many votes on the bench as he can get:

NOTE: The Post encourages feedback, so if you have an opinion about the changes, 'Riffs urges you to call the official hotline -- 202.334.4775 -- or to e-mail By phone or e-mail or snail mail, make sure you weigh in before it's too late.
