'Frazz' makes the cut

The past two weeks, I invited Telegraph Herald readers to weigh in on “Frazz,” which is receiving a tryout on the weekday (and Saturday) comics page.

Some of the low scores came from readers demanding that I return “Fox Trot” to the page. Heard of the statement, “The customer is always right”? Well, the customer is not always right. As I have stated here three times previously, the decision to discontinue “Fox Trot” was not ours. The artist retired from doing the strip on weekdays. There are no daily “Fox Trot” episodes. None.

Participation in the poll was light, and though it was not unanimous, “Frazz” received enough favorable scores – especially considering its newcomer status -- to stay in the lineup.
