Past his prime

You know, Doonesbury is still amusing on occasion, and it's still better than the vast majority of what you find on the comics page (which may be the very definition of "damning with faint praise," but still...), but gawd. Sometimes Trudeau just makes me cringe--never more so than when he goes into his Nestor/Abe Simpson mode and starts going off on those durn kids today, as he does here, and in every annual commencement strip for the past quite-some-time. Does he forget that his entire cast of characters once consisted of slacker college students? That at one point the administration was the butt of the jokes? Deeply embarrassing, is what it is.

And speaking of Family Guy, I can't fucking BELIEVE they preƫmpted it tonight to show fucking Star Wars. PRIORITIES, people.
