I really enjoyed putting this one together, as lengthy and wordy as it is. Obviously it was pretty easy to see where this strip was going, but I felt a real need to pay honor to the man who made the program what it is. And in light of, well, yesterday, especially here in PA, I thought about him in ways I never thought I would. But for better or worse, Bo never pretended to be perfect... he only inspired perfection.
On Thursday, Glenn returns to his earthly form and gets like the last ten pages of 'A Christmas Carol.'
