Meanwhile, in the regular weekly 9 Chickweed Lane strip the plotline that I mentioned last April has reached a climax.

Homespun folk wisdom, jerk
9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney (click on the image to make it bigger if it's hard to read the text). Those throwaway panels there at the beginning have that quaint folded map. It's hard to imagine this kind of scene happening very often anymore, what with the "strangers" usually having any number of navigation technologies at their disposal. I would be curious to take a survey of rural way stations such as gas stations or country stores to determine how much, if at all, the navigation devices have cut down on these sorts of "strangers asking for directions" situations.
