I received a few emails about my Yom Kippur strip from 10/9. I was obviously off the mark when it came to portraying this High Holy Day. This is one of those instances where the joke came first and the details seemed less relevant at the time.
In hindsight, itâ€™s hard to justify Jill doing laundry and Amy watching TV. In my mind, I was thinking the family had come home from temple and was trying to stay distracted from hunger in the remaining hours leading to the break-the-fast. Of course, this was never apparent. Not being overly religious myself (though observant in my own right), it didnâ€™t occur to me how dismissing this was to others. Oops. Point well taken, folks. Not to happen again.
On a different noteâ€¦
I received a nice email from a reader who enjoyed the 10/18 Sunday strip (below).
She shared with me this photo of a sand angel she happened upon while visiting Yellowstone National Park this summer. As she put it, â€œIt seems any medium is appropriate for angels!â€
