Been wondering if comic strip cartoonists have a Yahoo loop going to coordinate their themes because last Sunday, characters in Doonesbury, Luann, and Sally Forth all indicated an awareness of their existences being fictional and on public view. Doonesbury was the most direct, talking to readers about the strip centering more on Alex and her agemates in the future. To tell the truth, Fio will be sad if that's the case. She wants to keep up with the, uhm, oldsters too.
Fiorella couldn't start her day without reading the funnies, as she's done all her life, but, sadly, her children couldn't care less, which means her comic strip friends may soon be going the way of the dodo bird. What a loss when all the world will be playing video games in which they kill each other rather than enjoying a clever ten minutes with the comics page .
