As I mentioned a couple of years ago, all (or most) of the serial comics artists seem to have retired and been replaced by younger folks. While this is kinda good (rather than just killing a strip entirely), did we really need to have Mary Worth doing the Benjamin Button thing? Get any younger, Mary, and you’ll be kissing Charterstone adios.
On the other hand, many of her friend continue to surround her and follow her good sense with a slavish devotion. I suspect that’s all you can expect for a buttinsky like Mary. Oh, and Toe-by, the fat Professor’s trophy wife, also keeps time ticking away by experimenting with the latest and greatest hallucinogens that Santa Royale has to offer.

Remember the day-trip that Tommie is making to upstate New York to find a wildlife rehab center for her fawn?  And that the vet in Happiness Falls NY offers her a job (when last we saw Tommie, she was a licensed and practicing R.N./midwife)?

THREE WEEKS GOES BY!  It says that right in narration box!!!  I don’t know what’s more unsettling:  no one has seen Tommie in her place in NYC for nearly a month, or she’s wearing that same damned pink turtleneck that the fawn probably piddled on and that Tommie’s been mucking out stalls in for the last dozen days.  Ewwww.


Is it really Tommie?

Sometimes a whole strip doesn’t inspire me, but several do:

…but our hero Mary never fails to hobble into Action!

…even when Wilbur is being a jerk.  Face it, if Mary had to wait for Wilbur being a jerk, NOTHING would ever get done.

Oh, poor Tomm(ie/y)! Life is so hard when you’re an ex-convict/grieving nurse/Mary’s neighbor/Margo’s roommate!

“…will she be able to tell the difference?”

CC’s DOLz wonder aloud what the consequences might be (if any), were Mary Worth‘s druggie nemesis Tommy the Tweaker were switched with Apartment 3-G‘s nurse Tommie Thompson. Would anyone notice? Would anyone care? Let’s find out!
