Loved this, because it's a whole set of observations about Doonesbury I had never made myself. I see what you're saying about the strip's more passive approach in recent years, but it can still be devastating on occasion. I love Trudeau. How could I not love one of the only mainstream guys out there still calling Kissinger a war criminal every chance he gets?

But B.D. as the real hero? Not sure you've convinced me, but I will be looking harder from now on. He has always been a favorite with the strips' fans, I think, and herein lies another reason for its greatness, as you point out. Not a chance that the execrable "Mallard Fillmore" could come up with a liberal who is anything other than a grotesque.

B.D. is every man's hero, even the Libs. We all recognize the Male Problem B.D. represents. We all want to be noble, while resisting growing up. Little boys playing at games. Zonker doesn't even try. Mike is the Parent.

I gotta stop coming here. I'm more comfortable when it's not thrown in my face that I'll never be able to write like Lance Mannion.

Thanks!
