I've just got my new, re-sized Berliner Guardian. It's fine. But where's Doonesbury? WHERE'S DOONESBURY!?!?!? Aaaaaaggggghhhhhh!

Fine, cut my favourite part of the newspaper, see if I care.

*sobs uncontrollably*

Precisely my first thought on skimming the paper. The bitterist pill to swallow is that they dropped Doonsbury but kept the bloody Sudoku.

Priorities, Guardian, priorities!

I'm so naive. Yesterday I was thinking to myself, ooh, colour on every page! That means a full-colour Doonesbury!

Ahem.

I still can't believe they cut it. Especially given how it's clear that Steve Bell now clearly spends a lot more time on his full-colour illustration than he does on If..., which has been below par since the early days of New Labour, frankly.

Not that they couldn't have kept both, obviously.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
