I just want to thank you for being an important part of my life. I've been an avid fan since the '60s. I have learned so much about politics and I have laughed my ass off. Doonesbury is really something special.
p.s. I cried when B.D. lost his leg.
THIRTY YEARS AGO

Flashback, thirty years ago today: The secret of Zonker's eternal youth revealed!

This week's trip down memory lane has really reminded me that I really don't like J.J. and she never did change. What did Mike ever see in her.
Bren | Dublin, IRELAND | December 17, 2014
Today's 35-years-ago Flashback strip seems eerily familiar. Have we achieved Doonesception?

Also an excellent example of my best friend from undergraduate school who lives next door forty-two years later. Yikes!

Zeke is one of my favourite characters (and so is J.J.). The amoral, lazy, freeloading Zeke with his "hip" rationalizations for his quasi-criminal behaviour is an excellent example of why certain aspects of the idealism of the late 1960s didn't last. And self-involved J. J. is a perfect counterpart for him, taking full advantage of the lame (IMHO) notion that "it's art if I say it's art." Merry Christmas to all!

Gin up an Ebola epidemic on Fox! One story arc launched and five to go.

Equating Cheney's 3000 who died on 9/11 with the 3000 gun deaths this year: brilliant!

Today's Flashbacks: three throwback parties, two Sunday strips, but no partridge in a pear tree.

I have never seen the Alpha House show that keeps Garry from writing Doonesbury on a daily basis. However, you can keep running reruns as far as I am concerned. I enjoy reviewing the past of this strip, which was always current in its day and never seems dated. In fact, once you've caught up to the present I'd be haopy if you start again from the beginning and go one day at a time.

Where, where, where are Alex, Toggle, and them adorable twins? All love to Kim, but the last thing this once-a-week strip needs is another baby. Bring back the twins!

I just happened to watch Mike Nichol's "Charlie Wilson's War" last night. Great movie. Coincidently, the movie includes a clip of Dan Rather, unshaven, in native garb, reporting from the Afghan hinterland in 1980.
The memorable 1980 real-life moment you refer to was an inspirational factor in today's Roland Hedley strip -- and earned Rather the mocking nickname "Gunga Dan."
David Huntington | Katy, TX | December 08, 2014
Wow! Roland Hedley covering those freedom fighters battling the Soviets. Does anyone remember how that turned out?

As the 51-year-old mother of a seven month old (yes, really), I can't pretend that at least one of today's proposed story arcs didn't catch my attention.

Regarding your story arc announcement today: YAAAAY!!!!
J.C. | Ashland, OR | December 07, 2014
Is, maybe, GT's brain vibrating enough to get him back to the drawing board daily? Got my fingers crossed.
Here at the Doonesbury Town Hall we have received no indication, vibrational or otherwise, that a return to new daily strips has been scheduled. Sorry to disappoint!
PLEASE AND THANK YOU
Melanie | Jaffrey, NH | December 07, 2014
Six new stories! Does that mean we will get more Doonesbury, now that the second season of "Alpha House" is done? Love both works. Want more of both. Please and thank you!
NEW STORY ARCS
Chris Parkins | London, ENGLAND | December 07, 2014
Six new story arcs! Hopefully this indicates the forthcoming return of new daily strips? What a great Christmas present from Garry that would be!

It never fails that what is obviously meant to be self-satire is lost on at least half the readers. It also could be a mirror on our "24-hour news cycle," obsessed with the "new story" that rarely gets the follow-up it deserves. But in this case, none of these stories are all that new for one thing, and for another, none need to be given a whole lot of attention to continue, drop, or wrap up at any given time. I consider these panels as more along the lines of "Yep, these characters are indeed still alive and doing their thing, wherever and however that may be."
