Beacon Journal Spares Mary Worth

Well here's some good news we don't see every day. The Akron Beacon Journal is conducting a survey of its readers to see which comic strip they should hack. We all know how these surveys end up usually, since most people who read the funny pages are morons who want nothing more than a quick laugh, and are unwilling to invest in the kind of committed relationship Mary Worth requires. However, in announcing the survey, the comics editor made this wonderful statement!
A special note if you prefer the serials: For this survey, we're mostly interested in the mix of funny strips. So fans of Mary Worth, Rex Morgan and Judge Parker? You are safe.

That's enough to make me subscribe to the Akron Beacon Journal right there, and I don't live anywhere near Ohio.

If you'd like to read the article, in its entirety, it's here. The survey, however, is for their print readers only. And based on the readers comments section of the online article, no one has been able to figure out how to take the survey anyway.
