To reprise from an earlier entry about "Conservative Jones"
Beginnning in 1963, Donald J. Sobol created Leroy "Encyclopedia" Brown, boy detective, in a long series of children's novels. Only his parents and teachers call Leroy by his given name (which he dislikes); the rest of the neighborhood children refer to him as "Encyclopedia" because of his penetrating mind. "This Modern World" is a parallel universe and in that world, Tom Tomorrow gives us "Conservative Jones," Boy Detective. Jones has a trusty sidekick, "Moonbat McWacky," just as Sherlock Holmes had Dr. John Watson.
Conservative Jones like his Dumbo/Moron contemporaries sees all public policy issues through the prism of defending the "Free Market." Truth be damned as we rearrange the deck furniture of our Titanic-like nation. If this is another view of the decline of the USA, so be it.
