Oof: This Comic Strip Really Should Have Been Pulled
There's nothing intentional here, of course: this would have been done weeks ago, and Russell Myers is an honored veteran of the strip field and doesn't trade in anything close to how this might be read. Someone at the syndicate or whatever company they use to process strips on-line should have red-flagged this, I'm thinking. I feel bad for anyone that might read this that has a close relationship with events in Aurora, and I also feel bad for Mr. Myers.
thanks to twitterers and e-mailers that brought this to my attention
