    Another version has it in the National Museum of Health and Medicine (which was originally the Army Medical Museum and then later the Medical Museum of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology). It is said that whole families of tourists frequently turned up there asking to see the “exhibit” and went away quite disappointed when they were told that it was a myth.

    I’ve eaten at a few of them in the LA area during various trips there over the years, and the burgers and fries are pretty good but not worthy of the level of devotion that they inspire among the devotees. (Does the sauce contain some sort of addictive ingredient?) The best burgers that I remember from LA were the ones from Tommy’s, the drive-in in Eagle Rock, but I haven’t been to that establishment in 50 years so I really don’t know what’s the best place for burgers in SoCal these days.

    Which shows that Pitts isn’t a small town, since it has both a community college and a full university. This is the same situation as the real city of San Marcos, which is the site of both a community college (Palomar College) and a full university (the San Marcos campus of Cal State U.).

    The city of Pitts, where Luann lives, is based on San Marcos, a city in northern San Diego County where Greg Evans lives.

    Saved her life? All Luann did was make sure that Mrs. Horner was positioned comfortably and that a big lummox didn’t crush her chest. A campus cop was summoned, and he in turn called 911, but Mrs. Horner revived without medical attention. Hauling her away in an ambulance was just a precaution, for a woman of her age. That sort of thing must happen a dozen times a day, even in a municipality the size of Pitts (which is in fact large enough to host both a community college and a university), so there’s no way it would merit a TV crew’s coming out to interview people (especially since there’s nothing to see there, after the ambulance left).

    All this ultra-hype of a mundane situation makes it clear where this story arc is headed. Remember that the strip tried to rehabilitate the image of Luann’s schlub brother by making him a fireman, so now it’s going to try to change Luann herself from a vapid “blank slate” into another heroic first responder, namely an EMT. So now at least Luann will finally have a career goal (even though her actions in this single incident really don’t serve to indicate that she would be any good at it, notwithstanding all this ridiculous conflation of her importance in “saving” Mrs. Horner). But can we just speed along Luann’s inevitable decision to take that career path without first having to wallow in weeks of praise and gloating?

    Is this the personal trainer who regularly takes gruff from Funky Winkerbean? Is there no one in Westview who stays there, or has the whole town moved to Centerville?

    “Lustful”? “Lingual”? “Longer”? “Lower”?

    But what about the sleep chamber? Was Rip really in it for long enough to grow that beard, or was that all part of a hallucination?

    And just why would he want even to read Claude Barlow’s biography, must less to meet its author, simply to use some Barlow music in an upcoming movie?
