Funky and the General

Is Tom Batiuk, creator of Funky Winkerbean, about to kill off another of his characters? The last week of Funky leads me to believe that Funky is, or has been killed off in an automobile accident. Just when he'd saved the pizza shop and fought off the temptation to fall off the wagon, at least I think he did.

Tom, you're great but what ever happened to letting the characters ride off into the sunset when you can't think of another plot to get them into and out of.

Next subject: The General

Every so often it seems we are doomed to relive history. In real life we featured General Douglas MacArthur, the egomaniac of the twentieth century who believed he could blow off the President of the United States, and now we have General McChystal who thinks the President is too much of a lightweight to take really seriously except to provide humor for him and his handmaidens. Good riddance General, and read up on the constitution and the chain of command.
