At last, good news

There's hope for our culture. In a survey of readers, the Star-Telegram reported that nore than 10,000 surveys arrived in response to the invitation to help decide if the comics lineup needs improvement. Online readers returned 6,307 surveys and an estimated 4,000 others were mailed.
The results for the "Bottom 10, combining "Drop It" and "Don't Care" and comparing with their totals from "A Favorite" plus "Keep It":

1. Doonesbury (62 percent thumbs down vs. 33 percent thumbs up).

If that's not encouraging enough, Broadcasting & Cable reports that 18,000 media employees lost their jobs in 2006.
