Mary Worth, 10/16/04

Tommy’s gonna be lucky to still be alive by the time campus security arrives on the scene. This angry mob is going to tear him to bits, or at least seriously rumple his Members Only jacket.

I’ve been wrong before, but our “stuff” fiend’s comeuppance looks to be the climax of this ludicrous storyline. As Tommy gets hauled off to the hoosgow, it’s worth recalling that, like the recent Mark Trail sequence, this Mary Worth plot began with romance but ended in violence. Not even the soap opera strips offer a respite from the turmoil that troubles us today.
