  1. I can’t get over how timely these cartoons still are now; especially numbers 5 and 6. Number 8 was a real jaw dropper—-wow!

    Regarding #6. Hopefully I’d be able to help my child out (well enough) with that. 5th grade and up I might have to tell him or her “Dad needs to call John Quinones and ask him what would he do?” If he’s not available, perhaps a call to Dr, Bombay? If he can’t come right away, I’ll just borrow that line from Phyllis Stevens and tell the kid I have a sick headache to bow out of it. Chances are it’ll be the truth!
