Notes: The Three Kings -- the Magi, the Wise Men -- lose their way to Bethlehem. The cartoon simply speaks to the tragic lack of peace in the Middle East ... in a wiseass way. It may interest some readers that I prepared two versions of this strip for print newspapers. One ened with the word "wiseass" as above and the other ended with "wise-a_ _." I work with a very close deadline, so that keeps editors from being in a bind if they have a policy of not using a word like "wiseass." Happy holidays. 12.22.02
