Today’s strip wasn’t available for preview, so I got to thinking about what I really like about Les Moore. I mean, given yesterday’s strip, would I have gone to his high school party? Actually, probably I would have. We’d have tuned the radio to whatever Ohio station had Dr. Demento on, then I would have left by 9. I didn’t drink in high school, because I was a foolish young boy.
Oh yeah, my topic sentence. Nothing. That’s what I like about Les Moore. I am flummoxed as to why TB chose Les as his author avatar. By all accounts, TB is kind and charming in person. What does he see in Les Moore? What is the origin of his self-loathing? His mother who “really did a number on” him?
