We begin the week with John making an asinine and demeaning crack about Elly's writing skills.

(Strip Number 4509, Original Publication Date, 1 July 1985)

Panel 1: As a frowning Elly stares worriedly at a piece of paper while holding a pen in her hard, Lizzie asks John what Mommy is doing.

Panel 2: John says that Mommy is trying to write an article for the Valley Voice.

Panel 3: He then tells Lizzie not to talk to her.

Panel 4: When he makes a smart-ass remark about ruining her train of blank, Elly gets pissed.

Summary: This, I should think, is a slam against everyone who's ever told her that forting herself in an alcove and shutting out all external inputs is a stupid way to do things. She so can create something from nothing and don't you forget it.
