To my horror, I found no Doonesbury in the comics section of the D-G today. Garry Trudeau is taking a 12-week break, and the D-G has decided against running the archived cartoons Trudeau selected. In typical puckered fashion, it’s substituted “Pickles.”

Trudeau’s strip will return June 16, a story on the web says. The city desk says June 9. Let’s just hope it returns.
