I was around for the 1981 Medfly spraying. As I recall, nobody died from it, but the medflies didn't disappear either.

Re the "Preppy Menace" series: In hindsight, perhaps the eradication of the Preppies (and their British cousins, the Sloane Rangers) wasn't such a good thing after all. Politics in all democratic nations was much more civilised when the various right-of-centre parties had a good supply of courteous and well-educated (or at least expensively-educated) patricians among their leadership.

Thirty-four years later and the infestation matures and invades Washington. With a hamstrung EPA, perhaps a stronger pesticide this time?

Classic irony from Trudeau; using Twitter -- the hotbed of unsubstantiated rumors -- as confirmation of a newspaper fact. Love it!

Duke's Luger has been referenced at least once before, when he was at bar being pestered by a lawyer from the NRA who, it turned out, wanted him to testify at Judiciary Committee hearings on gun control.

Duke gave Brenner more of a chance than Oscar gave Reeva!

Tony Phillips | Chicago, IL | March 10, 2015

Duke had a Luger? Picked up off an SS officer in WW2? Perhaps he was a child spy...

Ian | Frankfurt, GERMANY | March 09, 2015

Today's strip with Duke eerily reminds me of the Oscar Pistorius case.

G.M.B. | San Francisco, CA | March 09, 2015

Thanks for the re-run of Duke at the stairs. A classic among classics.

Thank you for remembering and honoring the murdered Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, and lampooning the Muslim extremists/terrorists, with your clever, entertaining, poignant and moving comic strip today. We ordered a subscription to Charlie Hebdo after the horrible attack in Paris, even though we do not speak, and can barely read, French. We just wanted to support freedom of the press, tolerance, and cartoonists everywhere. Sincere regards!

Emil Baer | Napier, NEW ZEALAND | March 08, 2015

Today's strip is GBT at his glorious best! With one line he puts the Charlie Hebdo tragedy into perspective: Freedom of speech is not about offending others because you can. To still get your point across is the real art of satire. Not chicken, just brilliant!

T.S.L. | Paris, FRANCE | March 08, 2015

Although the entire civilized world was shocked by the murder of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, most people outside of France would not have known their cartoons. Thank you for not merely reminding us of them, but also showing Americans some of their creations.

Suzanne Meyer | Washington, D.C. | March 08, 2015

Todays strip is brilliant. Really brilliant. Thank you.

M.A. Mikulski | Kingston, NY | March 08, 2015

Today's strip: Respectuful, or chicken?

Tony Phillips | Chicago, IL | March 07, 2015

The Joanie lament goes on at some length. This we know because between the third and fourth frames, the bread sack has been closed and the toast is burning.

Bill Clark | Salt Lake City, UT | March 05, 2015

When I moved to Salt Lake in 1976 I had to take both the liberal Salt Lake Tribune for real news, and the LDS Church owned Deseret News for one thing; Doonesbury. Thank you for all these years.

What a difference 33 years makes. Those $60 floral arrangements are nearly extortionate today. ($60 in 1982 = $150 in 2015). On Feb 14 this year I bought a dozen red roses, which were on the verge of opening, in an Alaskan grocery store, in the dead of winter. I got to pick the best roses and paid $20 and small change -- about equal to the $8 Lacey wanted to spend.

Chris Tybur | Seattle, WA | March 01, 2015

Don't ever change, Jeff.

Tony Phillips | Chicago, IL | March 01, 2015

As Jeff met with publishing success, his hair crept down the back of his neck towards an adult look. Now it's been shaved again. Up for regressive mischief?

Robin Waterfield | GREECE | February 28, 2015

Today's strip just reminds me how much heart Garry always has, as well as head-oriented humor.
