|1) Happy Canada Day,
2) Friday's comic will actually be up late on Thursday afternoon; I have to catch a plane in the evening and won't be available to post the comic then.

|Panel 1: A
dishevelled Casey, dressed in his PJs, enters the porter's lodge, where
Jackie is behind the porter's desk. Felicia has followed Casey in.|
Casey: Have you seen Marie?
Jackie: But you--
Casey: I know. Have you seen her?
Jackie: She left. I...think she was going to St. Mike's.
Casey [turns to leave]: Thanks.
Jackie: Wait a minute. What's going on? Is something wrong? Will there be gossip?
Panel 4: Casey is gone. Jackie yells out through the door as Felicia stands beside her.
Jackie: As weekend porter, I need to know any gossip so that I may spread it far and wide!
Felicia: You'd think he would respect that.
Alt-Text: I guess people unfamiliar with U of T might think "St. Mike's" is a church (though July 18 will be Saturday, not Sunday). In fact, St. Michael's--St. Mike's for short--is one of the university's colleges. In this case, Jackie is referring to a campus library; its actual name is the John M. Kelly Library, but it's part of St. Michael's College and is often called St. Mike's for short.
