The frustrating subject of how to finagle Arlo and Janis into the comics line-up of one’s newspaper of choice has come up again lately. I wish I had something to contribute. Believe me, if I knew the answer to that one A&J would be in every newspaper in the country. The best advice I have on the subject is, “Never give up.” If you have a chance to respond to a comics survey, do it. Suggest your friends do the same, if they enjoy the strip. Just don’t try to stuff the ballot box illicitly. If you feel strongly enough, drop the occasional unsolicited—and polite—suggestion to the appropriate editor. You’d be surprised. Those snowflakes do pile up. You know I don’t harp on this subject, but I am grateful to any and all who labor on my behalf. Now, on with the show.
