Emcee:  Carolyn Type:  Moderated
Our paper, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, recently did a poll on the popularity of its comics. It dropped a few, Funky Winkerbean for 4xample, in favor of three really dumb new strips. I complained bitterly, and they are re-evaluating their decision.

This made me think others may also be addicted to reading the funnies and I thought a forum to discuss them might be in order.

This is a moderated thread only because, in this election year, some posts may be off topic or abrasive. If I think one is, that poster will be banned.
