    Great find, Planderella! I love finding examples of planning in pop culture, too.

    Does anyone have a copy of the (in)famous Calvin and Hobbes "zoning board" strip?

    Thanks Dan. Try www.ucomics.com. That's where I found the electronic version of the FoxTrot strip after unsuccessfully trying to scan it from Sunday's paper.

    Yes - a paper copy. It's tacked up on my bulletin board. If I had a scanner, I'd get it to you. Must be somewhere on the web though - I think there's a Calvin archive somewhere.

    If there is a date on Tranplanner's strip, we may be able to look it up in the Calvin and Hobbes archive at http://www.ucomics.com/calvinandhobbes/...

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
