It’s Rex Morgan vs Doonesbury in Virginia
The world has come to this: The Hampton Roads, Virginia Virginian-Pilot is in the mood to drop some comic strips; Mutts is already on probation. Now they’re asking their readers to choose between Rex Morgan MD and Doonesbury.
I’ll run that by you again: kill one – Rex Morgan MD, by Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan, or Doonesbury, by Garry Trudeau. Vote now.
O.K. Now I can understand choosing between any number of mindless talking animal strips (note how I just exempted Mutts). Or any of those mindless "my wife’s a bitch" strips. Or any of those strips that think running a golf gag four times a week is the height of humor. But if you don’t think Rex Morgan MD and Doonesbury is apples and oranges, then I’m not letting you anywhere near my cherry orchard.
