63. Thanks, DireStrike! Idea's from Dick Tracy's "Crimestopper's Textbook."
Edited on Fri Apr-01-05 05:51 PM by Octafish
Chester Gould or one of his most excellent colleagues created a small vignette for the Sunday comic in which they'd warn of the things the bad guys were up to. As I'm a master of the obvious, it became clear how to apply it to our present Abwehr.



If I may, an interesting sidenote: One of the most vicious bad guys Dick Tracy ever faced was "Pruneface." Created during World War II, the guy passed as a super-patriot. The reality was, Pruneface was nothing but a NAZI spy.



The late, great Detroit Mayor Coleman Young called Ronald Reagan "Pruneface." Now THERE's a coincidence!
