An interesting comment was left earlier today on this entry about Lynn Johnston's retirement from writing For Better Or For Worse. A fellow fan of the strip who goes by the handle T. K. Niland left Lynn a message, in the hopes that Lynn Johnston will find her way to my site. Here's what T. K. Niland had to say.
Dear Ms. Johnston,
I certainly understand your desire to “lighten” your load; but I will certainly miss the current format. I am a 75 year old comic strip “Junkie.” I’ve been reading comic strips since I’ve been able to read. I can remember when Mary Worth was an apple selling grandmother during the depression and have watched her grow younger to become a hot babe in Vietnam chasing a middle age Doctor.
I don’t look forward to losing the anticipation of finding out how the plot thickens; but I do understand and wish you God’s Speed.

I love that line about remembering Mary Worth when she was an apple selling grandmother and then watching her grow younger to become a hot babe chasing a middle aged doctor. Heck, I love the whole thing. And I whole heartedly agree.
