There are at least seven or eight other comic strips in the Post that are just crap–unfunny, juvenile, badly drawn, stupid–and the Post decides to drop three very popular, veteran strips. Yes, it’s only comic strips and not war or poverty or homelessness or crime coverage, but people read the comics as a counter to hard news and for entertainment, so they do serve a purpose. But, lately, the Post’s comics pages have been just awful. And the Post wonders why it’s losing readers? Here’s another reason.”
