So what did you expect?


To keep you on your toes and to prove I’m not always goofing off, know that I really did spend 24 hours in the hospital earlier this week. It turned out to be nothing serious. Really! We’ll leave it at that.

This Sunday cartoon, which you will see only at, is rare, because it is one of the few times I directly pasted screening to the original cartoon to achieve shades of gray. (Shouldn’t that be “shades of black?”) I’m glad I did not do this often, because it doesn’t reproduce well in the “grayscale” mode that is best for viewing pixelated black-and-white artwork on the Web. I’m so foresighted!

This cartoon also is noteworthy, because it was uncommonly well-received when it first appeared. Readers seemed to relate.
