There Must Be A Reason Art Didn’t Call True On His Cell

You ever watch a rerun of Seinfeld and think about how so many of those episodes are largely premised on no one having cell phones at the time?

Anyway, I was feeling the same way about Art not having called True until it occurred to me that Art might not have any idea about True capering about Central City. Instead, I am imagining that this is his morning ritual: Everyday, he gets up at 2:00 in the morning, pours himself a cup of coffee and just sits on the sofa in a stone faced rage thinking about all of the disappointments in his life, his incompetent underlings who failed him yesterday and whom he’s really going to stick it to today, how he has no sway with the at best negligent local high school coach who is undermining True’s quest to win a scholarship to the University of Miami Ohio and, with it, Art’s one last desperate chance for the glory that has so long eluded him.

Bonus Point: We have all debated the extent to which Boo was asking for trouble, but I believe the sign in panel one, with its charming, almost Caribbean patois, ‘No park, mon’ really did give her fair warning.



  1. Art and Gertrude? Standish must be split up, right ? That’s why he’s at the Days Inn watching ESPNU in the lobby. He’s hoping to see if his 2 star QB son has committed to Miami (Ohio) by watching the scroll all night.

  2. I admit I am stunned. I never thought of False as the problem during the midnight rescue we all predicted. But that “I am an angry blowhard” face does seem to say that he’s the next obstacle. Fool that I am, I had imagined the Mfnrd police would enter the picture or that True would fall asleep in the bullpen and as a result, throw meatballs in relief.
