Well, my first 52 weeks at Bizarro have flown by. My actual one-year anniversary is January 1, but I think I'll celebrate now, and again on Monday.
This is a good time to extend my thanks to everyone whose support and encouragement kept me going. These good peeps know who they are. If you're reading this blog post, that means you too.
On to the past week in cartoons.

He knows he's got a couple of suckers on the line.
Saturday's gag provides a peek into the near future, based on focus group studies.
Be sure to read Dan Piraro's blog, and check out his latest Sunday Bizarro page.
And please do come back to this blog next week. I hear my Bizarro one year service award is in the mail, and maybe I'll show it off.
