The final Opus comic strip appeared online a couple hours ago,
but the final reveal of the beloved penguin's 'final paradise' had to wait for the Humane Society to update its website. (An interesting strategy for Berkeley Breathed, who started the eponymous Sunday Funnie as absolutely-paper-only...

The Official Berkeley Breathed Website
[warning: ComicSans] announced that the weekly "Opus"
comics for August 26th AND September 2nd* "have been withheld from publication by a large number of client newspapers across the country, including Opus' host paper The Washington Post."
The reason? Making jokes aout Islam. And just the week before, Opus was thoroughly ridiculing the late Jerry Falwell

. Let's hear it for Fatima Struggle!!!
Berkeley Breathed is no stranger to controversy. Even his latest children's book, "Mars Needs Moms", was declared "Politically Incorrect". He is no stranger to me, either, although my last email exchange with him was over 3 years ago and I had nothing to do with this recent interview at MSNBC.com.
*Comic strip trivia: Most newspapers have their Sunday comics printed weeks in advance; that's why Kudzu ran Sunday strips two weeks after the dailies ended when Doug Marlette died.

AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO!
It's getting increasingly more and more difficult to find decent Bloom County
fan links. Like the rest of the 'Net, they're being replaced with ebay clones and page cannot be found
errors instead of actual content oriented sites paying homage and tribute to... I know. Berke Breathed
quit several years go. I should be able to just let it go. So I'm nostalgic, so sue me. I started looking for links that weren't broken, and came across... Who the heck is Lee Vasche
