Cul de Sac comic smart, upbeat

I disagree very strongly with Jairen Shupe's opinion of the comic Cul de Sac. Every day, I look forward to its quirky, acutely bizarre humor, grounded not in the reality, but the idea of childhood. Alice's grandiose fantasies and Petey's exaggerated (and a little familiar) neuroses are a source of perpetual amusement to me. Too many comics are ceaselessly negative and formulaic, it's nice to see one which takes ideas in interesting directions while remaining upbeat. That aside, I do agree that F-minus is hilarious, and perhaps a comic like Rex Morgan, M.D. (monotonous dullard) could be scoured off the comics page to make room.
