Stylized Pathos


We're back to the Levittown cocktail party circuit, where Leroy bemuses his interlocutor with another of his famous quips about marriage. Loretta, comfortably seated on a sofa with an acquaintance, pretends not to notice. The tension is palpable.

Everyone is in black... Wonder if this is a funeral for some lost Levittown resident?

But, surely that cannot be true. Death never visits this depressed little burg.

Wings: I recall a recent cartoon where somebody did die, and the Lockhorns were in the cemetery. Leroy delivered a short eulogy that made allusion to the economy.
