Buy the new book, "Beaucoup Arlo & Janis!"Today's "Arlo & Janis!"
The classic A&J cartoons on the Web site the next few days will be from the turn of the century. Doesn’t that phrase still blow your mind? I think it was about the turn of the century, when William McKinley was president, that Arlo & Janis began to take on its modern appearance. The strip would vary in small ways from then until now, but the characters had taken their current form, and the voice of the strip was basically the same as it is today.

What comic strip still in syndication today was running at that other turn of the century, the one when William McKinley really was the president? Yeah, it’s an easy one.
