Gus Arriola is one of my favorite comic strip artists. His drawings are so clean and he's a marvelous draftsman.

Richard Nixon was no ordinary baseball fan. The vice president said he was a Dodger fan ... and a Giant fan ... and a Senators fan? Talk about being politically correct.
"You have to be a fan if you're for the Senators," Nixon said. adding it was "real tough" to root for the Giants or Dodgers when the teams played each other.
"If Hodges and Snider can hold up I think the Dodgers have a good chance of winning the National League pennant," he said.
Was that the Dodger fan or the Senators fan speaking? It sure wasn't the Giants fan.
