Did Emeril Sponsor Today’s Strip?

‘Cause we’ve gone from a BANG! to a BAM!

I’m not gonna play lawyer here and rehash any of the details of Del Bader’s first DUI or the accident that killed Boo Radley. I’ll just say that anything Ken Brown says or does to Barry Bader should go straight from Barry’s lips to Del’s stupid lawyer’s ears…

… that is, once Barry picks his lips up off the floor and gets them sewn back onto his face. It’s fixin’ to be on like Donkey Kong in the Milford locker room; it only remains to be seen who will step in and break up the melee: Gil (yeah, right), Kaz (even money) or (Specialiest Snowflake) True (possibly endangering his post-Milford sports career in the process).

Me, I’m pulling for Barry getting Hang ’em Hiatt recused from Del’s case, if only to add a new wrinkle to this slog.



  1. Disclaimer: I am not a law school graduate, so, take the following with multiple grains of salt.
    I’m not real sure it’ll make any difference if Hiatt recuses herself on the second DUI. Del’s lawyer will have one shot at getting the blood alcohol level suppressed. If that maneuver fails, the presiding judge will almost certainly have sentencing guidelines, and I don’t know of any jurisdictions where vehicular manslaughter can end with a suspended sentence.

  2. Dark horse for fight breakup duty: Ace janitor Steve Luhm, rushing into the locker room shouting “Ease up, gents! No blood on my nice shiny floors!”

  3. Captain Ken has popped his cork, with good reason, which means, as John S suggests, that someone else will need to mediate, unless the unthinkable happens, that Bader stops being an asshole and takes his medicine. True has been cast thus far as a mix of Christy Mathewson and Jack Armstrong, All-American Boy, and I have an awful feeling the iconography is about to go out of control. I liked the angry, crushed True– before the eulogy– better than ever. One thing I believe to be beyond dispute is that DD (Dipshit Del) will spend the next few years making little ones out of big ones.

  4. Panel 1 July 23 is different from panel 3 July 22… Maybe he hit the locker door twice, as on 22 July his hand was over the vent louvers…
