We end the week with Lizzie comparing Valentine's Day to an election.

(Strip Number 1116, Original Publication Date, 14 February 1987)

Panel 1: After the party, Lizzie, Paula and a third girl compare notes as to how many cards they've received so far.

Panel 2: Paula narrows her eyes in rage when she reminds them that the horrible Melody that they're NOT JEALOUS OF probably got more cards than they did.

Panel 3: Generic Blond Kid comes over and talks about how ever neat Valentine's parties are. She agrees.

Panel 4: When she compares them to an election to hammer home the anvilicious point about popularity contests, he's mildly confused.

Summary: By now, we've probably absorbed a lot of belligerent nonsense that reminds us that Lindy still hates and isn't jealous of the popular girls. Today, we get vindictive crap about schoolroom politics that obscures the fact that Lynn was feared rather than respected.

Lynn on The Bridgehead

It would appear that Lynn has recently assented to give an interview that explains why she moved back to North Vancouver.

While she does mention her health issues, she also mentions something else: North Bay is a 'small' town with too much history for her to deal with. It is thus better for her to avoid painful reminders of her recent past in order to try to recapture her happy childhood of being the neighbourhood supervillain.
