Candorville Can't Subtract

This week's Candorville series contains a typo.Corrections were sent out to newspapers, but who knows whether they got them in time. I know comics.com didn't. OK, it's not exactly a typo so much as it is bad math. Mr. Nixton, a loyal Republican character who's been in a coma since the Carter administration, wakes up to find the country a very different place. Unfortunately, instead of writing he'd been in a coma for 26 years, I said he'd been under for 36. Sometimes I wonder how I made it all the way through AP Calculus...

I'm pretty sure when I was reading the comic over here in Colorado, it he'd been under for 26 years. Well, at least I think it did. When I was talking about the strip with a co-worker, I told him he'd been in a coma for 26 years.

I read Candorville in the Seattle Times and it said 26 years as well. I remember that because it's about how old I am.

That's great to know. Thanks, Stunn & Erik. I've heard from readers in other cities as well. I think the only people who may not have gotten the correction i were the folks at comics.com.
