Garfield v. Letterman

This is just strange: The city of Muncie, IN, dedicated an alley to David Letterman as a tongue-in-cheek honor. The event was picketed by two protesters who apparently thought that Garfield creator Jim Davis was a more appropriate honoree, since Davis was born in the county while Letterman merely attended college there. The protesters were dressed up as Garfield and Odie, presumably to lend a dignified air to the proceedings.

Well, I guess it's nice to know that dissent is still alive in America. (Whether it's "well" or not is still an open question.) Via Mark Evanier.
