Backs to the Future

This one is from 20 years ago this month. Remember where you heard it first. Often, when I’m addressing a group, I am asked if I ever get political in the strip. My immediate reaction is, “Well, don’t you read the strip?” But I don’t say that out loud. What I say is, I don’t produce overtly political material, but I do a lot of “social commentary.” I believe that if I take sides politically, 40 to 50 percent of readers will be angry whether my stance is justified or not. However, if I comment on underlying problems we all face in society, I find that almost 100 percent of readers agree.
