Don't forget to vote! That is, if you were going to. However, if you're not interested, don't vote just for the sake of it. We don't want randomness; we want an accurate poll.

Panel 1: All right! Liz is visiting Jim! Wonder if he'll be her Freudian therapist. He looks so sad hunched over in his chair like that, though.

Panel 2: Oh, it's just face time. Courthouse again, eh. And what's the deal with these trailing-off sentences? I also assume that Iris means the doctors are pleased with the results of the tests, not that the tests are an end in themselves. Jim does seem to be looking at Liz, so at least he's that cognizant. However, I have an inkling of how he must feel, with Iris speaking for and about him. That so often ends up with 90% of visits being dialogue between the caregiver and the visitor, and a small slice of attention for the patient as an afterthought.

Panel 3: So how about letting him talk? And I wonder if the Lynnions wish they could take back that "mind of a child" pronouncement.

Panel 4: That's a really good shot. "I'M doing ALL the talking for him, DEARIE! [cackle]" "I see. [shudder]"

Panel 5: Well, all right! Jeez, I'd have a lightning bolt too!
