(Strip Number 4625, Original Publication Date, 3 June 1986)
Panel 1: We find ourselves watching John watching an angry Elly type something. When he asks her if she's writing a new poem, she tells him that she's writing a letter to the Editor.
Panel 2: She then tells him that they can save it. They can create such a fuss, they'll have to save it.
Panel 3: She gets all berserk with holy glee when she says that THEY can picket, THEY can petition, protest and fund-raise.
Panel 4: His meek "we?" indicates that he never really anticipated becoming part of the process.
Summary: This, I should think, is because he might just know something she doesn't: she's probably the last person in town to know about any of this. Supporting your wife is one thing....trying to command the tide to turn is quite another.
