I know, I know! It's a comic strip and I should not give it so much importance. But I read it and a recent plot line annoys me.
First there was the whole "get-on-board-with-Obama's-call-to-service" and the character of Delta having a "direct line" to Obama on her cell phone (you know, because no other character can, because Delta is Black, and that particular plot line made the token Black character seem like some planted spy).
Now I see where they're going today - remove the candy from Halloween and replace with used books. Because Bernice - the smart girl character who isn't ga-ga over the boys like Luann, which I predict will come out of the closet some time soon - is railing about trick-or-treat, and treating us to an unfound statement that a Tootsie pop automatically leads to "hyper, obese, bad-teeth children."
Oh, give me a break! Halloween is fun because of the free candy and you know what, you can give away both if you wanted. I understand that the creator of Luann, Greg Evans, lives in San Diego - don't ring his doorbell, kids, you'll only be disappointed.
Now if he could just go back to the Brad/Toni storyline to see if they advance in their relationship, and maybe kill off Luann's father. Hell, losing Farley the Old-English Sheepdog did the trick for For Better or For Worse.
