Mary Worth 536

As Delilah catches a plane to the Valley, we are left to ponder the many lessons of this story. Primarily, that Rodgers and Hammerstein composed otherworldly music that transcends human frailties and failings, heals the scars of childhood, and can restore love between snooty child prodigies and uppity philosophy professors.

Have a safe flight to the Valley, Delilah.

Apparently, the call of D's patio furniture back home was too strong to ignore.

"Dear Mary - I made a decision..."

Just a decision, mind you. Maybe not the right one, in fact probably not the right one, but it was the first one that has popped into my head in quite a while. I just can't ignore a new decision!

Best of luck to you and all the super-white residents of Charterstone. And thanks for the salmon squares!

Spacily yours,
Delilah

Maybe she forgot to turn off the iron?

I'm disappointed that we won't be seeing Charley's reaction to Del's swift departure. He may think it was his singing that drove her away. Maybe Mary will explain.

This is the second story where Mary didn't feature that prominently. People are running off, deciding to do things on their own without Mary's disapproval. This will never do.

How rude of Del!!! She takes off without so much as a proper goodbye!? Mary had probably whipped up a fresh batch of salmon squares and fish muffins for supper. And we know Lawrence isn't even HOME yet!
Plus, I think I see Toby and Ian's plane coming in for a landing! I'm sure they would have loved to say "hello" and talk about their Scotland trip a bit. So, so rude.

D is boarding the new Blue Bird jet plane. Is it just me, or does the thing that D is stepping into look like a city bus that just sprouted wings?

And another thing, I'm getting dizzy with the new pace of these stories. Almost three full story lines in 2009, and we just started August! The Worthiverse must be returning from its little meandering stroll through the Dharma Initiative lab.

Of course, it might be asking a little too much that the rapid story lines actually bear some resemblance to reality and reach some sort of conclusion with all the story;s loose ends tied up in a neat little bow. That would be asking too much of two-to-four panels per day, wouldn't it?

Oh, those horrible trade-offs--quality storytelling, or reasonable pace? No one's ever been able to pull that off, have they?
