2009 called…


Seriously, unless they’re publishing reruns this week, this should have gone live more than nine years ago.

And if it is a rerun, I’ll repeat what I’ve said before (my own rerun): syndicates should respect their comic strips enough to pay somebody a few bucks to sift through old comics scheduled for repeat and pull out the ones that are either outdated or otherwise no longer appropriate.

Another idea: cartoonists can place some sort of “do not rerun this strip” notation in the margins of strips they know won’t be relevant ten years in the future (such as the many memorials for Anthony Bourdain).
