Good Stuff from the 1993 Sunday Paper

Church and Sunday School are finally over, and here’s what 13-year-old me has to show for the experience: a general feeling of piety marred by only one sibling squabble and an empty threat of a punishment, a belly full of choclate-creme stuffed, powdered sugar donut enjoyed in the church basement, and full control of the Sunday paper, since my sister beat me to the computer, and my brother beat me to the NES.

Let’s open up the Anderson Herald-Bulletin and get to the good stuff, shall we?

Of course, we start with the comics. We zone in on the good stuff:

And by all means, let’s skip over both the really bad:

And the downright awful:

Finally, just to keep up on current affairs, let’s scan some headlines…today in sports news history, this lovely lady won the US Figure Skating Championship.

  1. I lived in a group house in 1993. It was the responsibility of whoever got to the paper first to remove the Family Circus from the comics page so noone else would accidentally read it. It’s like a car accident: it sucks you in, you look, and then you really wish you hadn’t.
