You know, both Wings and Ringo get a bad rap. Wings did some good stuff. And Ringo was a genuinely talented drummer with a showman's flair. Even Yoko gets a bad rap. She is, after all, partially responsible for this. And it's not like The Beatles were going to last forever, anyway.
As for Prickly City, I have to say that I'm much more tolerant of it ever since I started reading Mallard Fillmore. It has two decent characters and is occasionally moderately amusing. It only really suffers, like most political strips, when it gets too political. There's a lesson there.
