That phrase has been running through my brain for years now. After the Chicago Tribune dropped Sylvia, my income was cut by half and Sylvia disappeared from my hometown. I felt the loss. I decided that I wanted Sylvia to be available to her fans and that I would create a presence online for her.
Getting BadGirlChats designed and up and running took over a year. The blog has been more satisfying than I could have imagined. A community of like minds and caring and talented people has grown up around us. You give us sustenance. Sylvia will live on the blog.
I’ve been writing and rewriting the announcement of Sylvia’s retirement from the newspaper business, but nothing seemed quite right to express such a momentous decision.
This morning I heard that Dick Cheney received a new heart. Let us hope that it is a generous heart, one that feels remorse and wants to right as many of his wrongs as possible. What do they do with the old hearts? Are they recyclable?
Sylvia has retired from her comic strip and Dick Cheney got a new heart! Whew! What a week.
But do not worry!
I have 33 years of Sylvia comic strip archives! I’ll be going through them, and every day there will be a strip on the blog which is relevant and probably one you have never seen before. Let me know how you feel…
Thanks, Sylvia and Nicole
