    And he probably waited until until after getting coffee and a bagel before telling Tracy.

    Er… Uh, just curious… What is your address?

    While true that he wasn’t universally welcomed there were enough for him to gain/hold power. And folk also have to remember that H’s slogan was not ‘war and genocide’ it was ‘peace and jobs’. Good slogan. You can see how some got suckered into initial support. Politicians say was they think will gain them support or appeals to their power base. It may have little or nothing to do with their actual beliefs

    And, bit of trivia, H wasn’t even a German citizen when he became chancellor — he was Austrian. Do we blame the Austrians for producing him or the Germans for welcoming him anyway?

    No one on the outside has a key? There’re all inside? That’s no way to run a museum — or any other business. (And we can assume that is a fake idol instead of the real Myrt.)

    So, basically, he either refills it from the rain barrel (when was the last time anyone saw one of those) or just dips his water bottle into the river downstream from a sewer treatment center to fill it?

    The Phantom still takes a long time to develop a storyline. I like that. Dick Tracy has short storylines by requiring characters to act like morons and leaving gaping plot holes and implausibilities. I’ll take the slower plot lines. But, you’re right: computers, instant news (or, more often rumors) on the television, and a faster lifestyle in general has sped up story telling. Not necessarily for the better. People used to buy newspapers just for the comic. (If you’re not sure what a newspaper is, you’re part of the trend to faster lifestyle. People used to wait for the news.)

    There was a saying in Iowa, “Iowa isn’t the end of the world. But if you stand at the western edge and look across the Missouri you can see it.”
