Garfield's Jim Davis blew it

Reuters reports that a Garfield strip ran on Thursday that many saw as insulting to Armistice/Veterans Day. Jim Davis has at least apologized, and said:
...the cartoon had been written almost a year previously and that Davis, who had a brother who served in Vietnam and a son who served in Afghanistan and Iraq as a Marine, had not known when it was going to appear.
I hope this is correct. If it is, then it suggests the syndicate in charge of distribution (Universal Press? I know he stopped relying upon United Features in 1994) held it back deliberately until now. In that case, maybe the distribution syndicate owes an apology.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
