This Week in Milford

June 20, 2020

I Also Have Getting to the Point Issues.


No sooner had I commented that Whigham drew a pretty good athlete in action yesterday than he draws one of the Dead End Kids Valley Mods with a ball for a hand.  Speaking of hands, look at the size of that paw and forearm on the ex-Mayor there. It’s as big as Anna Corina Corrina Karenina Karenna’s catcher’s mitt. Looks like he’s been giving it a workout. Maybe he won’t have to do that for much longer.

Otherwise, what is the point of introducing Ms. Karenna? Just to show up for one day to taunt the boys by showing them what a catcher looks like? To add to the seemingly endless parade of snarky teens in the Valley? I have a sinking feeling this arc may drag into the summer, as the Mayor finds his match, forgets about Milford and Phoebe, and his right hand shrinks back to normal size.

It’s not as if we’re gonna have a real baseball season or anything. I had a metapost in me but also a pretty busy day which is why I’m just now posting this. Maybe I’ll sleep on it and see if I can motivate myself to do it tomorrow.



  1. Ohhhhkaaaaayyy! As Bernadine Dohrn walks into the sunset plotting to blow up a police station. Maybe she’ll also teach at Northwestern some day.

  2. Teenchy,
    Is this Heather Burns with an Attitude?

    I can see the marquee at Milford Cineplex

    “Just when you thought Gil’s non-coaching days were over


    She’s mad as Hell and not gonna take anymore and this time her protege’s going pro!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Boy, that’s a front-seater if I ever saw one.

  3. The only thing that definitely rings true is that she’s a catcher, who is automatically in charge. Thus the only person she’s likely to take a swing at is the coach. But Knappe may find he likes this. Yes, I’m still disappointed at the winter plot, in which Alexa and her counterpart never got it on.
