It's good for Alex to worry a bit: it helps her appreciate just what a jewel she's got. But it's also good that her jewel thinks he's got a complete gem, too. They're a great pair -- I have to join all the rest chiming in. I love those two. As individuals they're good people: as a couple, though, they're far more than the sum of their parts. They're inspired and inspiring.

Here is one more old (in both ways) reader who agrees that strips with Leo are my favorite. Honey and Duke were hilarious in their time, but the sweetness in an injured boy warrior like Leo is much needed balm now. Selfishly, I hope I am still alive when they walk down the aisle. I look forward to it!

Yesterday's strip was awesome. Toggle was perfect with ihs line, "You make exception..." Very touching. But today with Ulysses and the siren was hilarious. Nice to see the heart of a Warrior. Thanks.

Another reason to love Doonesbury: GBT assumes his readers know their Classical mythology. (Today's "Ulysses" reference.)

I loved yesterday's cartoon. Unexpectedly sweet resolution to all that insecurity!

Shannon | Halifax, CANADA | June 06, 2011

I never thought I'd see such a romantic character as Leo in a political strip. GBT, you old softie!

Bobby | D'lberville, MS | June 06, 2011

Leo is in the right world. The rest of us are clueless.

How can you not love Toggle?

Ann | West Chester, PA | June 06, 2011

I am more in love with Leo every day.

Jaybees | Waimea, HI | June 04, 2011

Thanks for the laugh of the week. Alex is beyond funny.

Move over Dad-o-rama Popmeister. There appears to be a new "master of the emotional belly flop" !

Here's the problem with this country; everyone imagines a guy talking to a woman better looking than his partner is the death of the relationship. Only in Hollywood does that happen. Everyone knows that a real man will always come home to his woman. Toggle is an Army veteran. Disabled, yet disciplined and devoted. Get it out of your head that this new chick will steal him away...

Toggle, nice job scaring your girlfriend, even though it's mostly Alex that has the "I'm not worthy" problem. Someone knock her over with a pillow and bring her back to reality. I think Drew "knew all along" that Toggle was messing around (somewhat). Earth to Alex. Breathe, and look at the guy that adores you. That is all...

Nice dramatic touch with Drew's costume this week. What started as a simple t-shirt on Tuesday has become a slinky red dress by Wednesday. So out of Drew's character -- but so in tune with that alarming moment when your best friend doesn't realize it's time to dial down the star quality. I'm betting 99.9% of us readers are identifying with Alex right now.

Fun Fact: "Leo" (pronounced leyoh) is the Hawaiian word for "voice." Aloha.

Rex Forkner | Portland, OR | June 01, 2011

Leo is in deep, deep, doo-doo!

Dan | Lowell, Indiana | June 01, 2011

Looks like Leo forgot to stab himself with a pencil. He's in big trouble now.

Rock Quarry | Los Angeles, CA | June 01, 2011

I'll take a comfortable sweater like Alex over a lacy thong like Drew any day.

Re "Mad edgy."  I guess Boomer men are the last generation for which military life was a familiar part of the general culture, because military service, or at least the dreaded prospect of military service, was a normal part of growing up. Nowadays it's just something bizzare and incomprehensible that happens by choice to people who are nothing like anyone we know. The evil genius of Richard Nixon has done its work.

Stan Mott | Neuss, GERMANY | May 31, 2011

Let us hope that Alex, Leo and Drew do not end up as a threesome.
