    If you mean “Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor)”, Palmer covered it. It’s actually a Moon Martin song.

    I’ve heard both and liked them both, but the Robert Palmer version is definitely higher energy, so I prefer it.

    Strange — I just noticed that the underscores surrounding “names” did not Italicize it.

    It’s not a “lie” — it’s either accidental misinformation (if Pastis believed Huns had horned helmets) or intentionally using a known item that people think means something else. You’re presuming a lot by calling it a “lie”.

    However, if you can demonstrate how implying Huns having horned helmets would lead to anybody’s death today, I’ll be happy to reevaluate my opinion.

    So you are okay with antisemitism.

    As “no-name” noted above, I’m OK with people showing their true stripes in public. I’ve read people saying they prefer overt racism to covert racism because it’s easier to know the enemy.

    For example, I disagreed with Kaepernick sitting (and later kneeling) during the National Anthem, but I supported his right to do so. (Just FYI, my disagreement was that it was the wrong time and place to do it, not with his message against police brutality — he should have protested outside of police stations or their overseers in government.)

    The UP is great — in the summer. We’d vacation there regularly (usually Hessel or Sault Saint Marie, although one time we spent time in Houghton).

    I never experienced a UP winter, but seeing how slanted some of the driveways were to make shoveling easier, I imagine they were far worse than our LP ones.

    As I’ve mentioned before, it’s artistic license.

    Plus, they go through editorial review. Our comments don’t, so we could be using the words in a “bad” way (like calling somebody a d@mned fool).

    I thought so, too. Nose rings just look weird. If you must put something in your nose, maybe a small stud?

    I don’t recall hearing about any swarming attacks in Ariaona, though… anything in California?

    I can’t remember hearing about any up here (Monterey Bay area/Silicon Valley).

    Fortunately, it’s not true for Stephan who actually draws the comic. ;-)
