  1. Should of thunk of this a few strips back, but: What does "minority" have to do with the problem as Owl describes it, namely "nobody pays 'em court -- nobody goes see 'em any more"?

    And thinking a little further, I wonder why Owl thinks "nobody goes seem 'em any more." This is March 1962. Sometime in 1960, or maybe 1959, on the last page of _Beau Pogo_ there's a scene of four menfolks (Albert, Porky, Pogo, and Beauregard) sitting with Ma'm'selle Hepzibah, and two more arriving in the background (Owl and Churchy). Maybe it's an unusual event because Miz Beaver is very surprised to see it.
