Do you call the cartoons in the paper "comics" or "funnies"? Inquiring minds want to know....

Just read Sunday's comics section from The Los Angeles Times. I haven't read them for a long time, but B started subscribing to the Sunday Times and she shares with me the comics section and the crossword (Which, by the way, was a tough one this week. Lots of groaners.)

The comics used to be funny, most of them, or, at the very least, witty. I was surprised at the number that were satirical or critical: Doonesbury (always has been political); Pearls Before Swine, Dilbert (not funny just sarcastic); La Cucaracha (heavy satire); Jump Start; Non Sequitur (nearly always commentary, but witty); Candorville; even Frazz was more didactic than usual.

The only one that made me chuckle was Prickly City.

I suppose it's the influence of elections and the focus on what's wrong with America everything. Have we lost our sense of humor?
