This is just a really simple transitional page with not a lot of substance on it, but I REALLY love this one. I’m not sure why though…

I’m going to keep this short tonight. Rather than saying how I view it, let me ask you guys: Is the last panel yet another example of Rudy saying something impulsively dumb or is that actually the cleverest thing he’s ever said?

I think that was actually quite a cool line from Rudy.
If it was a dumb moment, I'd be cringing. But I'm not.

I have to wonder though, why were Gavin and Maria dating if Maria's gay? How was that ever considered to be a good idea?
I figured the whole "them going out" thing was just how all the other students perceived it, I didn't think that was what was ACTUALLY happening...

AliJ5533: I think it's because Maria is trying to go undercover about being a lesbian, since the principal is catholic :P

That looked like the perfect thing to say.
Side note, why the hell didn't I notice this comic earlier?

I like Rudy already. (Ignore the fact I read this multiple times already.)

I take offense at Rudy's comment on multiple levels. And yet, I understand it was a case where something normally said as an insult can be helpful. If it was actually intended supportively, then yay Rudy!

The rest of this comment is directed at those words in their normal 'intended as an insult' usage:

<soapbox>Men should be allowed to cry just as much as women. I understand and accept not being allowed to cry during a crisis. But after? It should be totally cool. And that rule should apply to both women and men, for jobs where it matters. If an EMT starts crying because they see someone hurt, they're really not well suited for their job. But if they go home and cry about all the people they weren't able to help enough after their shift is over? That shouldn't just be OK for women EMTs.

Kids should not be picked on for crying, period.

Being a girl is *NOT* A BAD THING!</soapbox>
