Nice to hear your input Monica I expected it. It's always good to hear your opinions. Have a nice Day (or evening, whenever you happen to be reading this post). Lynne is a sweetheart and her cartoon strips have always reflected the world we believed we were living in at the time they were created. As a child growing up in the 40's and 50's I remember that we felt safe from many things that probably existed to some degree but that we were unaware of or that we believed were things that happened extremely rarely. Everything is "out there" in todays world.
Beverly AnnI really miss your story lines that kept pace with the lives of the Paterson family. These stories kept going through the deaths of several family members ( including my dogs ). They helped to survive a messy divorce ( I have 6 children ). I grew to love the stories of the Patersons and looked forward to them every day. I still enjoy the strips and hope that someday they will pick up the stories where they were left off. Thanks for all the joys and tears..
Larry Finazzo, Fraser, Mi.I never said life was more peaceful in the 50's, only that life was perceived to be less dangerous because we seldom heard as much of the atrocities of all kinds that we hear of today. Maybe there were just as many but seldom did we hear of it to the degree that we do now. Lynn's comic strip was drawn reflecting that. I'm sure that if Lynn were just starting out today she would be more ''politically correct'' as befitting a more aware mentality of what can and does happen. Not only that but Lynn spent many years living in a tiny community where everyone knew everyone else. I could relate to her strip as I was raising my children through those years and love seeing the older strips again and I do hope that the strip will someday return to the progression of the characters lives as they were before going back and rerunning them from the beginning.
