I don't suppose many people read the comics in the paper anymore now that no-one is reading the newspaper. Some of them will probably continue with a healthy internet life but the fate of the interminable soap opera strips such Mary Worth or Apartment 3-G must be in doubt. One of the more bizarre soap opera strips was always 'Mark Trail' - combining outdoor folksy wisdom with a series of bizarre ongoing plots. One of the recent stories involved Sneaky, the adorable raccoon bandit.
Perhaps it was more than a coincidence that a recent Sunday nature strip set readers straight about raccoons and their rabid ways.
