6. Newspapers feel free to do this ... which is why they are often 'sacrificial' panels.

Cartoonists don't want to make the first two panels too essential to the whole strip, since a number of their readers won't see them. The result is a general decline in the quality of the strips, as papers try to force cartoons into smaller and smaller formats. Both Berke Breathed and Bill Watterson wrote about this in their books.
