Mary Worth 353
Once again, Santa Royale International Airport fails to keep Jeff Corey, M.D., from getting to the gate without a boarding pass. And I think it was sweet of Delta Airlines to give Mary Worth the best first class seat on the plane so that she can wave good-bye to Jeff. But that's Delta for you! They'll even drive the plane up to the terminal window just for last good-byes.
That lady with the black hair? The most unfortunate airline passenger of all time. If she turns her head at all forward, it's over. The meddling will begin.
Okay, I get it. The clouds look like waves. But, really, how does Mary come up with this kind of wisdom? It seems to be some kind of quote, from some wise, wise person, but really I think she's quoting herself. Only Mary could notice that waves ebb and flow, like progress. Except, of course, when they're ebbing. Which would be more like the opposite of progress.
For those of you who need a little more Mary Worth on a lazy Sunday morning, I thought I'd share this fantastic article from a 1957 issue of Time Magazine.
Once you've read the article, you'll enjoy these Lil Abner cartoons even more (click them to enlarge them). And if anyone can find copies of the Mary Worth retaliation comics, please let me know!
