John in an after-Rod world.....

It seems to most of us that there's a good reason that Lynn chooses not to run strips that present John in any sort of positive light. Simply put, she, like any person in her situation, feels a perfectly natural measure of anger towards his real-life counterpart, Rod Johnston. It's a normal thing to want to vent when confronted with disloyalty so it makes sense that anything associated with him would be the target of her hostility. Sooner or later, though, she'll move on with her life and stop hating him so much she needs to make his avatar look worse than he was in the original version of history. She may, as howtheduck thinks, be dating again or she may just have cooled down; the end result is the same: John is allowed to be the flawed but half-way decent guy that he used to be once in a while. This has the benefit of making the transition from New-Run John to to Original John less jarring when the time comes to go to straight reprints.
