Smoking is Bad if You Use it to Try to Kill Other People

In today’s For Better or For Worse, we got to see Mike for the first time since the fire and he is with Josef Weeder. No matter how many strips Lynn Johnston does where she shows Mike with his kids or Mike with his wife; a strip like this will take back all that family love in favour of the suspicion there is something between Mike and Weed. Carleen doesn’t say a word in this strip or in tomorrow’s strip. Lovey’s rant about the Kelpfroths is not directly to them at all nor does she care that they do not respond to her. The message here is Weed is uninjured and he will continue living in his apartment. Lynn Johnson is going to devote at least another day to the visit with Josef Weeder, and then that may be it for awhile for him until Liz and Anthony contact him to do wedding pictures.

With Mike having made the move to Milborough (unofficially), we have the end of the Mike / Weed era, where Mike is separated from and did not have to obey his mother. Like Liz, his independent days are done. He has been with Josef Weeder for 11 years now, and for the first time in 11 years (not counting a period in 2001, when he lived with Deanna pre-child and pre-marriage), Mike no longer is living close to Weed. Hopefully this will mean the end of Mike, the selfish prig, but I doubt it. Elizabeth’s behaviour has gotten even worse coming back home, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Mike's does too.

So much for my worm dinner. I had to eat chicken and rice instead.
