Why isn't Cul de Sac in the Post?

Beats me. Supposedly they bought it.

I'd encourage you all to write to comics@washpost.com.

Here's the note I sent today:

So, what are we all waiting for? Perhaps you can drop 'Watch Your Head' which sadly never fulfilled its promise. Or finally put 'Peanuts' out of its misery.

Yes, Cul de Sac is excellent and deserves a 7-day slot, but of all the lame comics in the Post, I'm surprised you picked Watch Your Head for elimination. It's funny and well-drawn.

How about me instead?

-- Garfield

Yeah, I probably shouldn't have picked on Watch Your Head - I just have been disappointed by the strip which I think isn't living up to its potential. At least it's a new strip by a young cartoonist. OTOH, my nine-year old likes Garfield. And my wife reads Mark Trail (at least on the weekends). Ok - Cathy - drop Cathy.

I like Watch Your Head, too. It's funny, well-drawn, subtle and very naturalistic, all rarities on the comics page. If they drop WYH I'm complaining.

Can't they just drop Mary Worth again?
