If your local newspaper is like the one here, you have been treated to recycled ‘Peanuts’ comics strips since Charles Schulz retired. Not that I mind-I don’t remember or failed to read them the first time around. Occasionally they cause a smile or make me stop and think. Take yesterday’s strip; Linus is attacked by Snoopy resulting in a fierce struggle for possession of the well known blanket. The last panel, after Linus has won the battle, has Linus saying these word- “The struggle for security knows no season!”.
I can imagine Homeland Security or various members, past and present, of the Bush administration co-opting Peanuts to put a more user-friendly face on various government programs if they had only known. Or is Schulz talking to us from his grave and having a little laugh?
