Retconned children do the craziest things......

As you know, one of the reasons Lynn gave for wanting to end the strip was that she could no longer accurately depict the behavior of small children. You'd think that she'd do the smart thing and base the strip on her own immediate experience but her self-esteem issues prevent her from seeing the obvious solution. She thus embarked on a foolhardy quest to turn back the clock and go back to when she was younger. The problem is that she still doesn't know how children behave. This means that we have MikeClone and NeoLizic behaving unrealistically instead of EatDirt, Francie and JonBenet. The same woman who used to be able to craft a fairly honest look at family life has deteriorated into making a boring, ugly, confusing mess on the comics page.
