Original post follow:
PBS and Get Fuzzy for Cathy and Marvin. That’s a good trade. See http://joshreads.com/index.php?p=159 for a detailed account of the blood bath that brought PBS, Foxtrot, and Get Fuzzy to the Baltimore Sun.
They eventually had to bring back Mary Worth and Phantom by popular demand and made room by moving Doonesbury and Boondocks to the editorial page.
Between the Washington Post (40+/-) strips, the 5 the Sun carries that the Post doesn’t and the ones I have to read online to keep current here (9CL and Gil Thorp), that’s only about 50 daily strips. I’m a light weight. Of course I’m blessed to live in an area with strong newspaper comics.
Where I used to live, the Tampa Tribune and the St. pete Times carried about 30 each (with a lot of overlap) but they printed the daily strips in color.
