I think fifty or sixty years of the kid always being the smart one in the comic strip in enough, don’t you?  I’ve realized, looking back, that I have more than a few “dumb kid” or at least “joke sails over the kid’s head as it actually would in real life” strips.  Dumb kids are funny.

I realize that this woman kind of looks like Rosanne, and that I have given her some dialogue which would not have been out of place in that show.  For a family sitcom, it actually had some very smart jokes.  Someday maybe I will write a TV pilot.  If I think I can do as well as they did in their best years, then it might be worth the shot.
