Easily amused

I found myself giggling through the Sunday comics today. I particularly liked Doonesbury, with Lacey (the late congresswoman) appearing in a dream to Joan Caucus and telling her that, of course, feminism is dead. Women today don't call themselves feminists, "just as people your age never called themselves suffragettes or abolitionists [because] there was no need. The debate was over."

"But how? How do I die as a feminist?" Joan wonders. Here's the answer.

  1. The link goes to the current day's Doonesbury. You'll need to hit the "previous" button to see the one for 7/16, being referenced in the blog.
