    They’re actually quite… um… wiley. I’ve come across many while hunting deer and they are incredibly intelligent. The ones around here are huge, too, and hunt in packs (most coyotes are solitary). They call them Coywolves.

    I’ve got plenty of hard copy books, but the Kindle Fire tablet I have is nice because I travel a lot between my home and cottage and I can always have my E-books with me. Also, I subscribe to dozens of magazines, mostly automotive, tech and outdoors, and digital is much cheaper as well as being much less wasteful. In 2009 I sold my house and gave away thousands of old magazines dating between 1983 and 2009. It took a guy four trips in a half ton truck to take them all. That’s a lot of paper and a lot of space to store. Don’t have to worry about any of that with digital.

    Not always. I am quite gay and I’ve seen opinions turn on a dime. People are brought up to hate so their first reaction is to hate. Many people (not all of course) start realizing, after they start thinking, that their hatred was irrational. A lot of times all it takes is finding out that somebody they always knew and loved is that way – but again, this usually happens after the initial reaction which is often negative. Some people even maintain the hate even though they don’t really feel it because they feel pressure to do so by others (church groups, peers, parents, etc).

    It’s actually not as rare as all that. People often react first and think second, and once they start thinking they start realizing they were being unreasonable.

    Considering that turtles can breathe through their buttholes I can’t say as I blame Verne for wanting to be clean…

    I think the only reason that I was so lucky was that I had waited. Had I came out as a teenager it most certainly would have been disaster. By waiting I was able to A) establish that the possibility existed because I was showing absolutely zero interest in girls and B) integrate my partner into the family (he was officially a “roommate”). He is a very kind and loving person and the kind of personality that you just have to love, and so my family came to love him before they knew that we were a couple. When I did finally come out and admitted that we were more than just roommates I think my parents were more relieved than I was. After coming out they told me that before they met Troy (my roommate-now-husband) they were worried because they thought I might never find happiness. They had been suspecting that I might be gay because, again, no interest in girls but they also had doubts because I don’t conform to the stereotype (I hunt, fish, ride ATV’s, fix cars for a living, etc – I am a gay redneck). They were worried that I was lonely (and I was, very.) They saw a change in me when Troy started coming around. They put two and two together, but still weren’t 100% sure until I told them. When I did, they were just relieved that I was happy, that I was going to be OK. Their reaction was unexpected by me, though, because as good a job as I thought I was doing hiding it, they were doing an even better job of hiding that they had any suspicions. All through my teens and early 20’s I’d hear comments that made me think they were totally against it, and when the moment came I was fully expecting and was prepared for negative fallout. Thankfully it didn’t happen.

    Troy and I have been together for 23 years now. Married for five of them.

    Greg’s reaction was exactly what I was expecting from my parents (I was about 21 when this strip ran, and was still living at home, going to college). I stayed in the closet until I was 26 years old and living on my own. I had actually moved out a few years before coming out but still couldn’t deal with the anticipated rejection. They couldn’t kick me out of their house anymore but I was worried they’d kick me out of their lives. Thankfully, when I did come out, their reaction was not at all what I had been dreading.

    All the time. It’s not quite as common as it used to be, but it’s still far too common
