Lasciate Ogne Speranza, Voi Ch'Intrata

Lockhorns Sunday is upon us. Leroy, the most accident prone man alive (for now), takes a magnificent pratfall from his bed in Panel One. Loretta shows her usual concern for her loved one by providing her trademark deadpan commentary on the spectacle without missing a beat. The action slows down considerably in Panel Two, where Loretta rejects the saleswoman's suggestion of an ESPN tee shirt as a means of attracting Leroy's attention. Loretta, the most dangerous driver alive (for now), actually has a valid complaint in Center Panel. Otherwise, I defy you to find the New York state law that explicitly bans the application of lipstick and rouge while driving. In Panel Four, Leroy can't resist annoying Loretta with an insult of his insane mother-in-law, who imagines herself to be Whistler's mother. Who could blame him? Panel Five brings us to the Levittown cocktail party circuit, where Loretta, as usual, mesmerizes her woman neighbors with the latest gossip. We're fortunate Leroy's around to provide his appraisal of the situation to his neighbor.
