The Easter Problem.

As you may or may not know, we're about a week or so away from yet another weakness of the reload will be revealed. I've already mentioned that Lynn's running things from more or less the beginning has caused there to be a year too many to make sure that Christmas strips run on Christmas day; the next problem is somewhat more complex owing to the very nature of Easter. Since it's what's called a movable feast, we can't simply subtract twenty-nine years and have Holy Week of 2011 line up with that of 1982; what's probably going to happen is that Lynn will have to move the strips for most of April around to make sure that Mike's wondering if the Easter Bunny exists happens close to Easter. The problem, of course, is that she'll have to interrupt the "Phil moves in just as the Pattersons are recovering from the flu" arc to do so.
