Forty!

Well fancy that!

I never knew that my favourite cartoon strip is almost exactly ten years younger than me. Then again it doesn’t sound quite so exciting now it’s written down.

I don’t know exactly when I started reading it, presumably it was sometime in the seventies, certainly before I went of to University in ’79 and I’ve been a pretty consistent reader ever since, much easier now that I can read it daily on-line. Bizarrely, on the days that I also have a paper copy of the Grauniad I’ll read that version too (just in case it’s different). The politics is sometimes a bit too American to fully understand but the endearing characters keep me coming back.

Happy 40th Doonesbury, long may you continue.
