Fear Ye Not Therefore


Ah, Sunday. Panel One, right off the bat, has to get my vote. Expressly for Loretta's benefit, Leroy lets off with one of his best bon mots ever about his favorite topic of conversation. Panel Two has Leroy at the tall boy desk, trying to make sense of the Lockhorns' disastrous financial muddle. For Leroy, even email is a luxury these days. In Center Panel, Loretta the fashion maven defends her turf against Leroy's embarrassing tastes in mens' leisure attire. Panel Four presents a classic complaint by Leroy, done to intensely humorous effect, as he sweats in the toil of trying to cut the shoe leather that Loretta served as steak. In Panel Five, Loretta complains to an apathetic woman neighbor about Leroy's cheapness in her inimitable style. They made appliances to last in those days.

The rest are witty, but panel one gets my vote, too.

Alas, I am too tired to come up with anything witty myself.

Loretta's a bitch... Enough said.
