Mundane Mary Worth Tackles Technology

There is a long-running comic strip called Mary Worth, which you'll find in many local newspapers. Of late, it has focused on the empty-headed character Toby and her naive but perseverent attempts to understand computers. The series' sequential nature, combined with its stupefying dullness, inadvertently makes individual strips seem like blunt nihilistic ruminations. It's like removing Garfield from Garfield, but they made it this way to begin with.


There is an organization, devoted to stopping Mary Worth being canceled, called "Don't Cancel Mary Worth." I suggest you tithe yourself to it at once.
