“The New Adventures of Queen Victoria” has quickly become one of my favorite new strips. Today’s strip is a great example of why. I love the idea of Calvin growing up to be Frazz. You can read more about this very funny strip at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Adventures_of_Queen_Victoria and its creator Pab Sungenis is interviewed on the “A Nickel’s Worth” blog at http://scottnickel.blogspot.com/2009/06/20-questions-with-pab-sungenis.html .

This is a topic I’ve been discussing with several people the last few weeks. More and more, you’re hearing about companies firing an employee and then telling one of the remaining employees that he or she must now pick up the work of the fired employee in addition to his or her own work. The only thing the pointy head boss in Dilbert left out was the “you’re lucky to have a job in this economy” line. I’m getting really sick and tired of the millionaires getting even richer by breaking the backs of the middle class. Enough is enough.
