Yesterday, Francesco Marciuliano posted that a Utah newspaper objected to the first comic (the color one), so he had to rewrite the middle panel just for them.
Maybe it’s just me, but… while I like both versions, I think the second one is funnier.
It now exists, but I’m still trying to link to it from the sidebar. I swear, WordPress is making it more and more difficult to do anything not in their suggested template.
I assumed this storyline existed because an accident actually took out Ces’s patio — but surely he doesn’t live in a universe where a contractor will do work without payment up-front.
In a fine bit of timing, I completed the Central Park to Battery Park walk just a few hours before the temperature dropped dramatically and three days of cold, hard rain began.
(To the uninitiated, Central Park is — logically — in the middle of Manhattan Island, and Battery Park is at the southern tip — as in “The Bronx is up and the Battery’s down’)
We ended at $1,172 (not counting the $780 my son collected up in Boston).
Starting point, Central Park. I could have gone inside the Park to take photos, but then I’d have found myself walking around and I had enough walking to do.
Working my way down Broadway (totally off-topic, if you’re interested in New York City history, this book is really good; I kept in in mind as I walked), I passed Time Square. The photos are NSFW (though you have to look at them pretty carefully), so they’re posted — with explanation — here.

Thanks again to everybody!
I guess it’s always been ambiguous whether Ma Goose can understand him.
