I can skip the sports pages. I can skip the stock and weather news. I can even ignore the headlines on the front page.
However I won't skip my daily fill of Doonesbury and Dilbert.
Fifty years from now on, when historians are looking back at the political and cultural events from the 1970's through today, they can find no better authoritative guide in Gary Trudeau's Doonesbury cartoons.
And if you want to understand the absurdities of business and corporate life, there is no better resource than Scott Adams's Dilbert.
Each cartoon is usually dead on when ridiculing hypocrisy and puncturing government and business absurdities.
