This Week in Milford

April 3, 2020

He’s the mayor

Famous mayors:

  1. Harry Caray- the mayor of Rush Street
  2. Hank Sauer – the Mayor of Wrigley Field
  3. Augustus Maywho – the mayor of Whoville
  4. Ed Koch – mayor of New York City
  5. Richard J Daley – mayor of Chicago
  6. This dude

And all the other mayors were surely less of a douchbag then this guy is gonna turn out to be. Even the mayors in this strip blow.

Floor design is weird in P1. Who has floor patterns like that?

P2 – what the hell kind of question is that? Its not even a sweater. I have a similar shirt; its NOT a sweater.

I hate this guy already.



  1. I think I speak for everyone, unless something truly horrible happens to Knappe, it will be a grave disappointment.

  2. With the exception of five years when I lived in places where the papers did not run the strip, I have been reading Gil Thorp since 1958, and this is the slowest start I have ever seen. We’ve had a full week in which absolutely nothing has happened, we’ve learned next to nothing about the new cast, and don’t in fact even know for sure this is to be a baseball plot.

    Chekhov wrote that in every story, there must always be conflict. Even in a brief exchange of dialogue, something should be at stake, even if only by implication. The only conflict here so far is that the two boys think, in a good humored way, that Knappe is an asshole, but that they are willing to associate with him anyway.

    Not good enough.

  3. This clown has only been around for a couple of days and he’s already more annoying than anyone they’ve shown in years, even Teddy Demarco. This story is even slower than the last one so far

  4. I don’t like Dex either. He had a chance to clothesline him. And he didn’t.

  5. Rob, Great choice on Harry. Speaking of Harry

    Harry, after his 7th Bud and buzzed by Steve’s cigar smoke

    “2 on, nobody out in zhe bottom of zhe eighsh inning, Cubsh leading the Giansh, 10-1. Heresh Mike Krappy azh zhe plate, pinsh-hitting for Ryne Shandberg.”
    “Harry, Jim Frey told me he wants to get some at-bats for this youngster out of Milford. A straight pull-hitter, Jim Frey wants to know if he can right-handers. His stats were not the greatest in AAA, batting .409 against lefties but an anemic .236 against…”
