Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Comics' 'Cathy' getting married?

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP) -- For 27 years, funny page fans in more than 1,400 newspapers have read along as "Cathy," of the same-named strip, navigated her life as a single career woman.

Will Valentine's Day put her in the married ranks?

Universal Press Syndicate, which distributes the strip, announced Wednesday that the February 14 edition of the cartoon will feature a proposal from Cathy's on-again, off-again boyfriend, Irving.

The strip's creator, Cathy Guisewite, hasn't said if Cathy will accept. But a press release from Universal Press promises "a comic and societal milestone." [...]

Gosh, if it turns out to be funny, that WOULD be a milestone!

Speaking of the funnies, Berke Breathed's new "Opus" strip has been out for almost three months now. 10 strips, each panel beautifully drawn, but I have yet to crack a smile. Maybe it's me, I don't know, but I am growing impatient.
