When I take a day off to focus on family or work, I usually don't backtrack, but I think to fully appreciate what's going on in this strip, you have to review what I think is the BEST BREAKUP EVER. Adam, who believes in Congressman McDugal, goes to work for him. He is so respected in the Secret Service that I guess he gets to pick and choose his own assignments based on, presumably, political ideology. Of course, since no one can EVER be in a relationship with someone who is on call, Terry has a complete meltdown. For Terry, you're either on call with her, or with the Congressman. Adam, who has his principles, chooses the Congressman, at least until he gets shot eight years later. Then he comes limping back to Terry, all "I love you, I have always loved you." But what happens when he ends up taking a bullet for Terry? Then who will he go limping off to?
Anyway, here's here's today's strip.
