...and "Get Fuzzy"
In "Doonesbury," B.D. - a character since day one - will be losing a leg in that storyline. It's also fascinating that the "Get Fuzzy" story makes the point that the casualties arrive home in the cloak of darkness.
These are sure signs that the general feeling is that this cakewalk has turned into an American tragedy. Bravo to Garry Trudeau and Darby Conley for tackling the dark side of this supposed patriotic spectator sport.
