Elly tells Phil that the evil sports people forced their way into burying her plea to give the arts community the attention it deserves.

(Strip Number 4639, Original Publication Date, 24 June 1986)

Panel 1: Over coffee, Elly tells Phil that she feels alone in her fight to save the Old Town Hall.

Panel 2: She did a 15 minute talk on local television on funding the arts and how sports get all of the attention.

Panel 3: Phil asks her what happened.

Panel 4: She tells him that it was pre-empted for an hour of baseball highlights.

Summary: I can't imagine how the Elly of 1986 would react to a modern day world where like half the cable channels are about sports while the arts still get a small slice of the pie. I'm also not sure how pure her motives are given that she also thinks that not having safe drinking water and not choking the world in our own filth is a silly thing to spend money on when they could be funding interpretive dance instead.
