But even great writers are susceptible to bad editors... especially when modern word balloons are so tiny:
I contend that after something is necessary, it remains necessary until after it becomes unnecessary. But I could be wrong; I'm no E. M. Forster.
I have added "Edelweiss" to the Charterstone Jukebox, even though I know loyal reader Toots McGee wanted me to add "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Delilah?" But I added Edelweiss because over the past 11 years I have sung that song nearly every night to our various children, sometimes three times a night. So I think I'm close to 10,000 performances. That is, if you include the altered version I still sing to my 12-year-old son. He insists I sing the words of the Spider-Man theme song to the Edelweiss tune thusly:
Spider-Man, Spider-ManToday's Full Strip
Does whatever a spider can.
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies.
In the chill of night,
At the scene of the crime,
Like a streak of light,
He arrives just in time.
Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
