The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 9: 1967-1968

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 9: 1967-1968 by Charles M. Schulz

Peanuts rolls on. The kite-eating tree finally appears, after all his adventures with kites. Baseball games with some interaction with Peppermint Patty -- she joins the team with a new character Jose, briefly -- and with the usual slew of loss. Linus tells his blanket-hating grandma that she has to give up smoking for him to give up his blanket, with the expected consequence. Camp -- actually that was more Peppermint Patty as tent monitor and her three charges. Snoopy as a flying ace, and a sequence with him skating and planning on the Olympics (until he tries to go and discovers there's an ocean in the way) and some as a vulture. He interacts with a single bird a lot -- still nameless, though. Linus's measles shot has him panicking. And more.

Peanuts, continuing. The red-haired girl moves away without Charlie Brown having the gumption to say Good-bye. Snoopy is a hockey player and a checkout worker -- hangs out with a bird who is finally named Woodstock -- is reported by Frieda to the Head Beagle for not chasing rabbits and has a stint AS the Head Beagle -- and we have the return of "A dark and stormy night" as Snoopy takes up writing entirely. Lucy pursues Schroeder and sees Charlie Brown -- and Snoopy, and Woodstock -- at her booth. And more.


Was philosophically contemplating more of the whole plane stuff and metaphysics in D&D.

One thing that it would curb even in social structure is philosophical differences. One school maintaining that souls are imprisoned in matter as punishment -- one school holding that souls are created with the bodies that they animate -- one school holding to reincarnation as a punishment or reward according to situation you are born into, and another that it is a way to give every soul a chance at every situation, so that no soul, in the end, will be able to complain of not being given the same chances as other souls. If you have the planes, all the other schools are just being stupid.
