For Better or For Worse has become a hybrid. Lynn Johnston
has been making some changes to FBOFW
gearing up for the time when the characters will stop aging in the strip. Unlike most comics which are frozen in time, the characters in For Better or For Worse have gotten older, made changes in their lives, fallen in love, and had children. Some people aren't so happy with this fundamental change in the strip.
However, FBOFW is no stranger to controversy. Michael, the oldest child of the Patterson family, had a gay friend
who came out in the strip
prompting some papers to run completely different strips
on the days the homosexuality issue was mentioned. In recent years, however, the internet has been abuzz
over the issue of middle child Elizabeth's love life.
Thankfully we can read all about it from youngest child April's perspective.

The Foundation For A Better Life.
A non-profit, non-partisan, non-religious, organization that doesn't want your money, but that simply believes, "the values we live by are worth more when we pass them on
." What kind of values? Strength
. Hard Work
, Class & Courage
, and more. Their billboards
and TV ads
are all around, but if you're like me, you probably had trouble figuring out who they were from...

The Second Superpower Rears its Beautiful Head.
"With its mind enhanced by Internet connective tissue, and international law as a venue to work with others for progressive action, the Second Superpower is starting to demonstrate its potential." Starry-eyed Wired-era cyber-bull? Or are bloggers and texters (plus peace activists) the vanguard of the revolution? Douglas Ruskhoff
