CJA: Former U of Virginia Student Sentenced For Murder of Ex-Girlfriend

Cidu Bill on Aug 31st 2012

Last year, I interviewed the author of a book about this case about violence on college campuses and how well campus security deals with it

Okay, I know what he means; but where’s the joke?

Okay, Ms. Price, you do know these things do exist, right? They’re called ”diners”?

Peterson’s attorney tries to help him in his trial for killing his third wife by giving him a strong motive for having killed his fourth wife. With a defense like this…

And then Scott Hillburn spent the next three weeks praying ”Don’t let her die at the end of August, don’t let her die at the end of August…”

You know, I wonder whether Hillburn thought about using Joan Rivers in a comic when she was in the news exactly three weeks and one day before this strip ran, because of this insane stunt.

CJA: Ladies’ Day at the Shooting Range

Cidu Bill on Aug 29th 2012

Is it illegal discrimination to charge admission to men and not to women? A Maryland man and his $200,000 lawsuit claim it is.

Don’t Look Back!

Cidu Bill on Aug 29th 2012

Man, that dwarf still give me nightmares.

But that’s irrelevant here. What’s going on in this strip?

lookback.gif

Okay, and now I’m reminded of the old David Steinberg story: God lets Lot and his family escape for Sodom and Gamorrah, and he warns Lot “Whatever you do, don’t look back!”

So they begin to walk and Lot’s wife says [in a whiney voice] “Lot… we should have stayed. It was fun there.”

Lot continues to walk.

Lot’s wife says “Lot… you have to be more aggressive with God. You can’t always be so passive.”

Lot continues to walk.

Lot’s wife says “Lot…”

And Lot says “Dear, God told me to tell you to look back.”

Idiot Bill Bickel is such an idiot.

Cidu Bill on Aug 28th 2012

“Oh, sorry,” he wrote me last week, finally responding to one of my messages telling him he was giving out my email address as his. “I’ll let everybody know my correct address”

Yesterday, one of his clients e-mailed me expressing concern that he couldn’t reach Bill by phone. I wrote back that he’d probably given him somebody else’s phone number. Because he’s an idiot.

And this afternoon Bill sent a client some sensitive financial information, cc’ing… me.

I wrote back to him asking him — rhetorically — how stupid he was, that he’s still unable to use e-mail properly. And cc’ed the client.

No more Mister Nice Bill.

CIDU or Arlo?

Without “I like it,” this makes perfect sense. With it, I don’t see any non-Arlo interpretation, and then the third panel doesn’t really make sense.

CJA: Burger King Cashier Sues After Being Fired For Wearing a Skirt

The real question is why Burger King has let this matter become — literally — a federal case

“August 29, 1967: The day the running stopped”

Cidu Bill on Aug 26th 2012

It’s been 45 years since the final episode of The Fugitive aired (45 years?? Holy crap!), and I will go out on a limb and say that no television program before or since has had a greater final scene (though the second Newhart series comes close). I’m not talking about a final episode, mind you (though The Fugitive’s final episode as a whole was pretty damn good as well), but the very final scene: Kimble leaving the courtroom, Bob waking up.

I am, of course, open to opposing opinions…

But would he still be in prison, almost 32 years later, if he’d killed John Doe rather than John Lennon?

What the hell is going on here?

Cidu Bill on Aug 24th 2012

Putting aside the fact that Phyllis Diller was apparently an atheist (it’s really not the cartoonist’s responsibility to research everybody’s religious beliefs; besides which, who knows how one’s religious beliefs might suddenly change when they’re 95 and dying?)…
