The new-ruins summarized.

As you know, it’s always been easy to summarize what’s wrong with various eras in the strip’s history by focussing on a single image. The declining years could, for instance, be neatly summed up by the image of a jackass telling his old girlfriend from high school that he’s so disappointed with the reality of married life, he wants to leap head-long into a hooooome that only existed in his mind. We can also sum up the mid-nineties by watching Elly shrug and turn on her heels because knowing how her four year old can open the latch on the back gate isn’t a cause for alarm; this, of course, highlights how negligent and dumb Elly is. Fortunately for us, Lynn has supplied us with a convenient visual metaphor for the new-ruins as well; the Thing that Ate Milborough. As not_bridgett; pointed out, the image of a festering ball of garbage that’s the product of waste, haste and stupidity is the perfect image for the last ten months of the strip.
