"How CVS Invaded My Brain"

Joe Bob Briggs--long time, no see!--doing his thing.

There’s some guy at the world headquarters of CVS drugstores screwing with me.

I don’t know who he is yet, but he lives in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. This is where CVS Health, the largest drugstore chain in the history of drugstores, has its main offices, and where a designated marketing jerk chews on the nub of a pencil and thinks all day about how many coupons he can string onto the bottom of my sales receipt.

How the heck did I miss this?

Bloom County has been back for almost a year!!

Mr. Breathed has lost a few inches off his fast ball--in 25+ years almost everybody not named Nolan Ryan does--but Bloom County is still terrific. (And to continue the baseball analogy, given how much crazier the world has gotten, he's now not facing major-league hitters but high school ones.)
