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.
