Thank you for speaking truth to the ridiculous world we live in -- for all these years! It makes life better to have someone who thinks like you around every day. I've been reading your strip since it started.
Thanks for the unique, but accurate, perspective you have been providing with regard to this strange habitat we are inhabiting. Your characters are not only well-drawn but have real personality.
Forty-five years! I don't think I missed a day. Thanks you for your artistry, you are truly a genius. I love Alpha House too. Bravo! Bravo!
Forty-five years?! I became hooked on the strip when Joanie appeared. Still here. Thanks.
Just want to say thanks. Here's to 45 years. Cheers!
Thank you for Doonesbury. It has been the highlight of many of my days...
I don't know how you contain your anger and focus it through the strip. I'm still angry that the Austin American-Statesman took Doonsebury off the daily comics page (they publish it elsewhere) due to it being too controversially political, and that was about 30 years ago. I thank you for all the times you've put my heart(and mind-)felt opinions into your strip. I thank you for all the yucks, too.
Thank you for your service!
Given all the enjoyment that you have brought to the followers of your strip over the years, I think I can speak for many of us when I say take as many well deserved sabbaticals as you feel you need. The historic Classic strips are still outstanding!
Congratulations on 45 years! Doonesbury has a special place in the Billings Gazette -- sandwiched between Dilbert and Mallard Fillmore in the "Classified Bonus" section, which is buried deep between the Horoscopes and Suduko.
Congratulations on 45 years. Hard to believe I've been reading your strip since I was 15. Who can forget Guilty, Guilty, Guilty! or Dare to Be Great, Ms Caucus. Looking forward to another 45. I'll try to stick around for your 90th.
Please: Don't - Ever - Stop!
I've been reading and laughing since the first strip. I'm the same age as Mike and his friends, and feel like we've all grown up together. Thanks for 45 years of thought provoking and just all out funny entertainment.
Thanks for a great 45 years! I was introduced to Doonesbury when I was a kid in New York City, and my babysitter, who was from Long Island, would bring a week's worth back from visits to her parents, who subscribed to Newsday. At first I identified with the kids, and now, well, with the older people. Thanks again for so many wonderful laughs, touching moments, and wonderful commentary that taught me so much.
You take on society and especially politics is superb. May you continue for many years to come!
