This Week in Milford

Theoretically Feeling That Flash


I’m not saying I need, or even want, a moral that makes sense to wrap up a Gil Thorp season… but this is some pretty weak sauce denouement. Also, too, didn’t someone slug what’s his name?

What else do we have today?

P1: Ms. Rizk’s clenched fist makes this quite the arc for that sort of thing if that’s what you’re into.

P2: I love the twin terminals in the foreground. I guess that big scoop on expense account abuse freed up funds for the paper.

P3: Prairie style window muntins are what do it for me, so let’s just focus on those and ignore whatever lame point Dafne is trying to make.



  1. I saw a coffee mug once that said: “Stress: the confusion created when one’s mind overcomes the urge to choke some moron who deserves it”.
    Did that just sum up the entire spring story line? Is that all we get?

  2. That’s kind of a big newsroom, considering we’ve never seen anyone else working on the paper except for Dafne and Ms. Rizk.

    Of course, one look at that Rizk Fist would make any self-aware high schooler make a beeline for Chess Club. Yikes!

  3. Double D has lived a charmed life…this is the first time she’s been angry. Not even that morning she got up and there was no rainbow, or the time her unicorn had the accident on the rug. Please bring on two a days before I eat my gun.

  4. I totally missed the point of this spring/summer plot. I thought it was about how one can get away with quitting in life.

  5. I’d be intimidated too if I saw that Ms. Rizk had appendages like Dr. No. Then there’s P2. Since when did the journalism room become a Rent-A-Center? And under Ms. Rizk’s watch? They must have been cartin’ that stuff overnight after the janitors went home.
    “Tune into ‘The Young and the Restless’ tonight at 8 only on The Milford Network.”

  6. P1: Remember that robot from “Lost in Space”? Just sayin’.

    “You are nothing but a stupid journalist whose luck has rrrunn out!!”

    Today’s headline from the Milford Enquirer
    “O. J. Tells Daffy to Stay out of His Gym Bag!!!!!!!!”
    “Rumors of Barbituate Usage Prove Premature; Substances Turned Out to be Dentyne.”

  7. Muntins, huh? That’s a great vocabulary word.
