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.

Turf Terminators will buy your lawn for the low cost of destroying it and replacing it on the cheap, sell the missing lawn at a higher cost at the same time for a public subsidy, then pocket the difference. You don't have to pay a thing. But there's no free lunch. And no free lawn removal.
Both the Lakers and Angels seem to be operating without a clue. The Lakers can't convince any top free agent to come to LA, while the Angels just had GM Jerry DiPoto resign after a feud with Mike Scioscia.
What is the role of the artist in an imperfect world? Noah Purifoy, the son of sharecroppers in the South, seemed to have it right.

Marcie Edwards, Los Angeles' water boss, gives an audience no sense of the calamitous nature of the drought. But maybe that’s as it should be.
