As the hardreading staff noted at the time, last month the Boston Globe announced that the cheapskately local broadsheet had “discontinued several [comics] strips and two games.”
By “several,” of course, they meant 11.
(The Globe’s math skills leave much to be desired, as we discovered when the paper played DNA newsletter for Elizabeth Warren last year.)
Regardless, that relegated the comics to a single anemic page.
Cut to today’s edition of the Globe, where the editor moonwalks on his strip mining of the comics pages.
We’ve already indicated our choices: Zippy, Get Fuzzy, Mother Goose & Grimm, Bliss, and Bizarro.
Make sure to weigh in on yours as well.

The hardreading staff knows we should just ignore this knucklehead, but the Boston Herald’s baldiest thumbsucker scales entirely new heights of Carrtoonishness in today’s column.
Take my DNA challenge!
Prove you’re an Indian, Liz
There is only one way to settle once and for all the question of whether the fake Indian is or is not a real Indian.
She needs to take a DNA test.
I dare you, Sen. Warren. It only costs about $200. If you insist, I’ll pay for it. In fact, I’ll take one myself. It’s easy. Just swab the inside of your mouth. Check my photo on the left, I’ll show you how to do it.
Seen enough? Us too.
So, to recap:
First there were truthers. Then there were birthers. Now we have . . . lizzards – sorry, Lizzers.

Here’s Matt Viser on Warren in today’s Boston Globe:
In book, Warren explains guarded nature with the media
WASHINGTON — It is an odd contradiction. Senator Elizabeth Warren has shaped an image of herself as woman of the people, fighting for common middle-class families, unimpressed by her own power.
But since her 2012 election the Massachusetts Democrat has typically walled herself off from the media, refusing to answer questions in Senate hallways, frequently declining interviews, and adopting some of the same guarded, cautious communication strategies as the corporate CEOs she often pillories. Several weeks ago, a Warren aide physically blocked and reprimanded a Globe reporter seeking to ask Warren a question about the Boston Marathon bombings.
