October Letter(s)

Since today is the first of the month, we'll prob see a letter today (assuming the Lynnions stick to the announced plan of one letter from one character each month from now on)

Since many of you will likely see it before I do, I'm putting in a placeholder entry to allow discussion. Whoever finds the letter first please leave the link to it.

Thanks everyone.


EDIT: Given the feel of the Sept letters, its possible that there wont be any monthly retcons at all anymore. Post here if anyone finds any official confirm or deny one way or the other. To be safe, I'll leave this entry here so if a letter turns up there's a place to go snark it.

Stephanie is going to D.C.

To stand on a table and tell people that special needs kids are people too need more funding. Or something. ETA: Actually, she's going to be the keynote speaker for the Disability Awareness Month celebration at the U.S. Department of State. My bad.

Anyway, I wonder why D.C. and not Parliament. American press more valuable for propaganda? Or has the Canadian government placed a cap on the amount of attention-whoring Lynn can do in a year?

::grumble:: I hate this kind of thing, because it puts one in a position of, if you're not moved to tears, you're basically saying "Are there no workhouses?" When Lisa went to Washington in FW, many readers pointed out that she was not blowing the lid off some big secret. There had to have been people in there who already knew what cancer looked like.

Same with special needs. I know George Will is not a politician, but he does have a kid with Downs, and because of who he is, he's been able to influence funding for education and research. Who wants to bet that if Stephanie was just the SN person who bags Lynn's groceries, Lynn would never have taken notice of her?

Hmmm....all new...but still more superteddy...

Panels 1&2: Merrie finally gets a mild scolding from Mommy and is told not to aim for people or breakables. Of course when Genius punished her severely for daring to disturb him, he only said it was wrong to hit HIM...hitting Mommy or breakables is funny and Daddy enjoys and encourages you to hit Mommy; but hitting Daddy MEANS HELLFIRE AND DAMNATION FOR BAD CHILDREN! Notice that only Merrie is getting the talking to while Crown Prince Poopie Pants is a mere spectator.

Panel 3: Here we go! Crown Prince Poopie Pants is showing that Patterson Sense of Entitlement!! Teddy now, later on the Pattermanse and Tiny Train House, all their contents, and all the land. Genius and Train Man have taught him well. Merrie of course has learned from Mommy and Elly that the proper role of a Patterson female is to lower her head and bend to the will of a Patterson male; that is until she marries her first ever love, then she becomes his property to do with as he wishes. Grandma Mira could show her how to think for herself and that a woman takes a backseat to no man, but Genus and Doormat dont want Mira interfering in their lives nor keep Merrie from being nailed to her wooden cross for her man and constantly complain about all the bleeding she's doing...just like Mommy and Elly.

Panel 4: Since Doormat only told Merrie not to throw Teddy but DID NOT tell Crown Prince Poopie Pants to stop throwing Teddy at people or breakables(plus since he's a Patterson male, he's free to disregard anything a woman tells him to do especially a Patterson woman). So it's a beeline to the door to hit a random walker out on the sidewalk.

Panel 5: YES!! And who comes up the walk but St. Elly!!...or is it Liz coming up the walk? I cant tell them apart anymore, so I dont know if it's Elly or Liz. At any rate, this is prob for this community the happiest panel we've seen in weeks. St. Elly or Obliviliz is fixing to get Superteddyed into some concrete!! Will it be concussion, compound fracture, or...dare we say it...multiple injuries? We better not speculate...we might jinx things up and Elly/Liz will escape unharmed.

Tonight we sleep, perchance to dream of broken Patterson bones on the morrow...too bad it's not His Divine Genius coming home from an evening of coffee with Weed....
