Frame four today: Wow. Alex really is her mother's daughter.

What with Toggle/Skye and "Veronica Mars," Kickstarter is having its best week ever.

Dennis Swaney | Oroville, CA | March 15, 2013

Hmmm. Fantasy-wise, Alex and Jeff are definitely related. "Red Rascal" for him, "Paris with the babies" for her.

It is not the hormones. It is not carrying twins. It is hormones, carrying twins with a laundry list of neuroses, and a wild, vivid imagination. and the worst is yet to come. Please, Toggle has suffered enough: PTSD, TBI, losing one-eye, and aphasia. Don’t make him go back to Afghanistan.

Welcome to one of the major tests of love for a couple. The questions change, the right answers aren't, and this counts for your overall grade.

Karen L. Hale | San Diego, CA | March 13, 2013

Poor Toggle, he is finding out the hard way that pregnant women can have a lot of fear about things, both imaginary and real. I also think it is worse when you are carrying multiples. It must have something to do with the hormones.

Yippee! Toggle is back. He and Alex brighten my day. Best married couple since Darryl and Wanda of Baby Blues, or Amos and Edda of Chickweed Lane.

I'm reading today's strip from our honeymoon, at a party hostel in Budapest. The kids don't eye-roll at us, but I'm more in the 8-track line. I know people who've used Kickstarter. It helps to either have friends, or have a project that goes viral -- which is a little like winning the lottery. Now, if you'll excuse me, the Beatles are popular here and I want to listen to "Eleanor Rigby."

Larry | Honolulu, HI | March 13, 2013

Woah! This is scary. Pregnant, suspicious and all that's missing is a mid-gestation trauma. If Alex starts to track like my ex, we'll all find out what it's like to be part of the entitlement culture. Hold onto your wallet, Toggle!

Here is a short article about the time I made a small contribution to the strip: Doonesbury, The CHP, And Me.

Hey, if you stare at the Mudline for about a minute, when you look back at the rest of the screen it appears all wavy and fun. No more prescription drug abuse for me!

Ed Cherlin | Columbus, IN | March 10, 2013

The Honest Man is the only person who lets us make sense of Scalia's outburst on voting as a "racial entitlement."

Maerzie | Florence, WI & Foley, AL | March 10, 2013

Today's strip, with Jim "Honest Man" Andrews, beats all -- G.B Trudeau always says it like it is! I can't thank him enough for his frankness and courage in trying to protect our democracy.

With the splendid new business model, is not a radical and progressive name needed? Walden is, well, so 19th century. How about Hogwarts U? Motto: "Making your fantasy real since 2013."

Pete | Hillsdale,NJ | March 09, 2013

I'm relieved to see that this generation's cliches, such as "It's all good", get properly roasted. Perhaps the language won't decay as quickly as feared.

Michael Dee | Bernardsville, NJ | March 08, 2013

I wonder if President King will be replaced by a celebrity like The Donald, in order to up the earning potential of Walden. Maybe Newt or Cheney? I have been reading Doonesbury since '68 when it was Bull Tales, and I was present at the football pep rally when President Kingman Brewster, three sheets to the wind on his porch on Hillhouse St., declared that Yale was going coed -- so I know that history is often stranger than fiction.

Ian Weniger | Vancouver, CANADA | March 07, 2013

I can't wait to see if Mike and all the commune-ists fight the Dean to keep Walden not for profit. I wonder if B.D., Jeff and Zipper will connect on the conservative side. But I won't hold out for any Quebecois exchange students to join the fray with a "casserole." Or should I?

Jon | London, ENGLANDLAND | March 06, 2013

I have been reading Doonesbury since 1988 and once read all the back stories, and I genuinely believe that this week's storyline is your finest piece of work. You summed up the last 35 years of western history in the last panel of Monday's strip.

Caidy Charles | Ducor, CA | March 04, 2013

The term "grandmothered" is brilliant in regards to being taken care of. I once spent half an afternoon applying for a building permit in Elko, Nevada only to be told I could not as the existing building had been "grandfathered" in. "What?" I said, "Did someone famous die there?" No, the clerk solemnly told me, It was the first brothel. "Then", I replied, "should it not be grandmothered in?" He did not get it. Nor did I get the permit.

Jan | New York, NY | March 03, 2013

"Written under brutal conditions..." Which probably explains why we've been seeing Flashback strips for a week.
