(Strip Number 4292, Original Publication Date, 5 February 1983)
Panel 1: We find ourselves at the storefront the Valley Voice used to call its offices. As Elly hands Mrs Walsh her column, she tells her that she's a bachelor wife this week because John's away at a convention.
Panel 2: Mrs Walsh repeats the phrase and then tells Elly that that sounds like a column she should write for them.
Panel 3: Elly points out that she's not being paid for the one she writes now. Mrs Walsh, who really can't afford to pay her until she gets more subscribers, sputters out a baffled "Paid? PAID?"
Panel 4: She's genuinely confused when she reminds Elly that she's being published.
Summary: As I recall, the Lynnsight in the book is all about how cheated Lynn felt that she only got a few lousy dollars for her efforts when she was cartoonist for a store-front paper like this. Neither woman seems willing to consider that when they work for a start-up, certain expectations have to be deferred.
