    This morning I happened to be at the computer when today's dewey-fresh Slate Doonesbury email arrived at 4 a.m.

    Now we get to see if Jeff is as good an actor as he is a writer (cue ominous music).

    It's remarkable how these 'idiots' survive while disaster strikes all around them. So the question really is, does the Red Wingnut bring it on by kharma and retribution, or does he just stumble from one chaotic scenario to another? I'll go with 'stumble.'

    I just want to say that I'm rooting for Redfern to succeed in his mission with Overkill. Sometimes I feel like the Millennials in the strip are shown to be self-absorbed, incompetent, with delusions of grandeur. However, I feel like Redfern is going to overcome his past failures and succeed in a big way with this and I'm cheering him on!

    I'm glad to see that Red Rascal is on his way back to Afghanistan. I've taken the liberty in my blog post today to further task R.R. to include getting together with Karzai on the negotiations with the Taliban. Karzai needs help, and only Red Rascal has the super power to pull it off.

    I suggest that Jeff have real life experience to bump him out of his imaginary life. How about getting him captured and degraded in prolonged captivity by the Taliban, held for ransom, shot while being rescued by U.S. Forces and spending time (six months to a year) in a military hospital recovering from his injuries like B.D. and thousands of U.S. troops injured in Iraq. Teach Jeff that the world does not exist for his gratification.

    On the 40-years-ago-today Flashback strip, the first three frames have the toaster cocked and toasting, but we never get to see it pop up. I wonder if it burned.
