I read two comic strips every morning before I get to work. One is that magnificent intergenerational backwoods saga of love, passion, revenge, mosquitoes and bad bar food, Barkeater Lake. The other is the pastoral, courageous, heart-felt Spot the Frog. But Spot’s been missing for two days now, and I’m worried.

I hope he hasn’t been run over.

UPDATE: Spot’s been relocated. (Okay — I wrote to Mark Heath, his creator, and asked him what had happened. I really was worried.) Turns out Spot is fine, though suffering through a software glitch at But — cool new thing — Mark has a weblog, Frog Blog, and I’ve added it to my blogroll.

And all is well with my world.

    I hope not, too. Let’s hope his game of Frogger wasn’t cut short.
