Today, A Tom Tomorrow Trifecta

This blogger is baaaaaaack! However, it wasn't easy. Upon returning from the Turkey Day sojourn (2 weeks!), it seems that the router that connected this blogger to the Internet had failed. It would seem that some evil presence in cyberspace has a voodoo doll of this blogger. First, a laptop computer failed and now a router. Bad things come in threes and today's post features a Tom Tomorrow triple feature. In the first 'toon, a pair of Dumbos offer their take on sexual harassment. In the second, Sparky The Wonder Penguin confronts Biff about rugged individualism. Finally in the third 'toon, Tom Tomorrow provides all of the Dumbo wisdom about class conflict. Perhaps a three 'toon post will ward off an evil third event for this blogger. If this is (fair & balanced) superstition, so be it.
