BEHIND THE CURVE: Reader Mark Winburne emails:

Don’t know if you saw Doonesbury today, frankly I’m not sure who still reads it. But in my Commercial Appeal I noticed the whole strip was about Harriet Miers Supreme Court nomination as if she were still the nominee. I know he has to do them in advance but don’t you think he could have them pull the strip and run something else instead. Maybe if more, make that any, papers would run Day by Day they wouldn’t have that problem.

I didn’t see today’s comics, but according to the Doonesbury website the Miers strips were withdrawn, and replaced with a timeless strip on Zonker’s competitive tanning career. I guess not everybody got the word.

And yes, more papers should run Day by Day.
