Sample text

Sadly, the only thing standing between President King and utter despair is a robust cynicism. His annual graduation speech, delivered in rich tones of sarcasm, is usually cloaked in resignation. King knows that he runs an asylum full of Zippers. That he chooses to remain at his post is a tragedy of inertia. 12/28/86 1/14/86 1/15/86 1/16/86 1/18/86 1/20/86 1/21/86 1/22/86 1/23/86 2/3/86 2/6/86 2/7/86 2/8/86 2/14/86 2/18/86 2/20/86 2/21/86 4/13/86 3/25/85 8/4/86 8/6/86 1/19/87 11/30/86 11/4/86 11/5/86 11/6/86 11/7/86 11/10/86 11/11/86 11/13/86 11/14/86 5/29/86 6/2/86 6/10/86 6/17/86 9/14/86 9/9/86 9/10/86 9/11/86 9/12/86 9/23/86 9/24/86 9/25/86 9/27/86 12/14/86 10/20/86 10/21/86 10/22/86 10/24/86 1/6/87 1/7/87 1/8/87 1/10/87 1/20/87 1/21/87 1/26/87 1/30/87 3/10/87 3/11/87 3/12/87 3/13/87 4/5/87 2/11/87 2/16/87 2/17/87 2/18/87 3/16/87 3/17/87 3/18/87 3/20/87 8/30/87 3/24/87 3/26/87 3/27/87 3/28/87 4/8/87 4/9/87 4/10/87 4/18/87 6/14/87 5/12/87 5/13/87 5/15/87 5/16/87 8/3/87 8/4/87 8/5/87 8/6/87 7/19/87 10/20/87 10/21/87 10/22/87 10/23/87 12/15/87 12/16/87 12/18/87 12/22/87 1/12/88 1/13/88 1/14/88 1/15/88 3/21/88 3/23/88 3/24/88 3/25/88 2/14/88 Of all the remarkable characters I encountered in college, the most unsettling was Scotty McLennan, my roommate of three years.

Whenever a writer creates a character who appears to be beyond reproach, it’s almost always for the purpose of setting him up. The Bible is filled with such characters, and without their pratfalls and shortcomings, the good book wouldn’t just be unteachable—it’d be unreadable. As long as Scot holds on to his core decency (a good bet), we need him to be as ungodly as the rest of us. 4/19/88 4/25/88 4/27/88 4/28/88 4/30/88 5/4/88 5/6/88 5/10/88 5/23/88 5/25/88 5/27/88 5/28/88 4/17/88 12/12/88 12/13/88 12/14/88 12/16/88 5/30/88 5/31/88 6/1/88 6/4/88 6/5/88 7/25/88 7/26/88 7/28/88 8/11/88 10/3/88 10/4/88 10/5/88 10/6/88 5/22/88 3/15/88 3/16/88 3/17/88 3/19/88 11/29/88 11/30/88 12/1/88 12/2/88 1/10/88 1/2/89 1/4/89 1/5/89 1/6/89 1/10/89 1/11/89 1/13/89 1/14/89 2/19/89 3/13/89 3/16/89 3/17/89 3/18/89 3/19/89 1/23/89 1/26/89 1/27/89 1/28/89 4/3/89 4/4/89 4/5/89 4/7/89 4/30/89 5/30/89 5/31/89 6/1/89 6/2/89 7/13/89 7/17/89 7/24/89 7/26/89 4/19/89 4/20/89 4/21/89 4/22/89 5/21/89 8/14/89 8/15/89 8/16/89 8/19/89 8/28/89 8/29/89 8/31/89 9/1/89 12/11/89 12/14/89 12/15/89 12/16/89 12/31/89 To understand just how much I owe the folks I work with, you need only learn how long each of them has put up with me.

The backstory is rarely worked out in advance, so I get to go on the same journey as the readers, preceding them by mere days, narrating over my shoulder: “Aha! ” None of which is to say that the old, established characters aren’t essential. Without them, Doonesbury would flap around, unfocused and flimsy. D. and Joanie and their long histories give the strip ballast, a sense of cumulative weight and purpose. When I return to them, it’s not out of laziness or habit—I’m simply reconnecting with my roots.
