A friend recently pointed out to me that the strips I write don’t often fall into inter-generational mudslinging.  He said that had become a staple of some mainstream daily strips.  I hadn’t noticed that trend, but he’s right.

Well, this one’s not precisely mudslinging; it’s just some private grumbling rather than an open feud.  But the poles of tension are mainly between generations within one family.  When that happens, I guess I do prefer to have the older characters have a better grasp on the situation.  Older people can be as foolish as anyone, but I think in most cases we do get wiser as we go on…less hip to culture and more hip to fundamental humanity.

Or maybe I’d just like to think that.
