Okay, yes...I'm behind again, though I'm slowly catching up.  With luck, the Wednesday comic will appear at some point on Wednesday.  At the very latest, it should be up by Thursday.  Let us hope the Friday comic will appear on Friday, just in time for me to get behind on the Monday comic, since I'll be spending the weekend in Ottawa.

Fun link for anyone interested in the real "Davies":

In 1966, two Massey College Junior Fellows made a fifteen-minute black-and-white silent film set partially at Massey and partially elsewhere in Toronto.  It is amusing and very well put together, and it features then-Master Robertson Davies, who gave Davies College its name.  Until now, it has been inaccessible to almost everyone except Masseyites who happen to stumble upon the lone videotape owned by the College, or perhaps one of the DVDs ripped from it about a decade ago.  However, three weeks ago, someone put it on YouTube.  You can see it here.  Please consider checking it out.  It's a good film, and it's especially fun for Torontonians to see what the city looked like in the 1960s.  Some bits are familiar and some less so.  The bit at the airport is...instructive.  Security, shmecurity.

Panel 1: Casey opens Marie's apartment door to find Barbara standing in the corridor.

Barbara: Is Marie around?

Casey: Sorry, no.

Panel 2: He leads her into the apartment.

Casey: She flew out yesterday. She said she was going to do some research in Winnipeg.

Panel 3:

Casey: Of course, I know she's actually at a job interview in Lethbridge.

Panel 4:

Casey: People keep forgetting the genius thing.

Barbara: Maybe if you consistently remembered what century you were in...

Alt-Text: Casey does fit rather well into the whole "genius ditz" trope.
