The year that should have gone missing......

As you know, I've made no secret of the fact that I think that Lynn's decision to start the post-Settlepocalypse strips with the new-ruins was a miscalculation. She made an annoying hash of the timeline for the foolish motive of introducing Farley into the mix when Mike was in kindergarten in order to promote the kid's book and the too-late-for-Christmas plushie. It seems to me that there was an easier way for her to 'annotate' the strip: follow the strip from 31 August 2008 with the one from 1 September 1980. That way, we could have avoided the whole bungee-Deanna atrocity, the long-distance Phil-and-Connie lunacy and been currently debating whether John will ever figure out that Elly doesn't really want appliances for Christmas.
