As I noted before, I'm collecting The Bloom County Library, the entire collected series of strips of Berkeley Breathed's classic comic strip, as each volume is released. Most recently, Volume 4 came out on my birthday, and it encompasses the years 1986-87. Those are the years of Bill the Cat causing Chernobyl, a catastrophe which has been revisited a lot in the news lately. Also mentioned--though more in the forthcoming final fifth volume--is Donald Trump, whose brain is transplanted into Bill eventually. And right at the point I'm reading? Poor phobic little Binkley is distraught over the divorce of. . .Marie Osmond.
Mr. Breathed is either a man far ahead of his time, or history isn't just repeating, it is having a seizure.
