They always return

Wow, really big day today. Silent penultimate panels from:
Adam@Home by Brian Bassett
Andy Capp by Roger Mahoney and Roger Kettle
Baby Blues by Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman
Zits by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman
Betty by Delainey and Rasmussen
Cathy by Cathy Guisewhite
The Duplex by Glenn McCoy
Candorville by Darrin Bell

That's too many to count. And that's not even getting into all the almosts.

Continuing my Opus rant from last week, Opus is again confounded by the brand new technology of automatically flushing toilets. And Breathed tries to use automatically flushing toilets as a political metaphor.

Still, as far as socio-political astuteness goes, Breathed looks like Noam Chomsky compared to today's Mallard Fillmore.

On a positive note, Zits, Foxtrot and Get Fuzzy, perennial purveyors of four panel Sundays all turned in multi-panel, true Sunday strips. Things are looking up.

Any thoughts on Sunday's La Cucaracha, which was practically all-silent (and sporting an unusual layout to boot)? I liked it and didn't think it necessarily deserve SPPW censure, but it was sufficiently quiet that I saw it and thought of this blog (which i adore BTW!)...
