Times relents on La Cucaracha

That was fast: the Lalo Alcaraz comic strip that was killed yesterday will be back tomorrow by popular demand. Flip side: the dog cat gets it. A blurb on the Times website:

"La Cucaracha," one of several comics dropped this week as part of a shift in The Times' daily and Sunday print edition feature lineup, is returning to The Times' daily comics pages starting Wednesday. We decided to bring it back after hearing from so many of our readers who follow the comic strip loyally. "La Cucaracha" will return to our Sunday pages starting March 25.

To make room for the change, "Healthcliff" is being dropped Monday through Saturday along with "Mallard Fillmore," "Candorville" and "Mr. Boffo."

By the way, that's "Heathcliff" not Healthcliff...and he's a cat not a dog.
