I can handle comic strips about obese, talking cats. I can deal with comics involving beagles who think they’re WWI flying aces. Those aren’t tough stories to swallow. But the complete and total disregard for reality that stains Wednesday’s For Better or For Worse comic strip is sure to rile aspiring authors everywhere. This kind of thing is why creative writing courses are swamped, editors are hounded by people bearing awful manuscripts, and the less-reputable vanity presses are able to take advantage of unsuspecting dreamers.
