   schema:description ""The way we were, four days ago. Get ready for real time nostalgia as the far flung Doonesbury tribe braces for the Ground War. In the relative safety of his New York apartment, Scud Spud Mike Doonesbury watches coverage of ABC News’ Roland Hedley watching coverage on CNN, including live pictures of an artillery attack on Ray and B.D.’s Humvee. As Ray is medevacked out of the ‘meat fleet’ to get patched up, Mr. Butts tallies the weekly body count-9,000 American KBS’s (killed by smoking. Talk about your friendly fire!). And when the smoke finally clears, Duke and Honey are found standing in the middle of downtown Kuwait City, proprietor and hostess respectively of Club Scud, home of the $200 hamburger. As the troops head home, post traumatic confusions mount for both war makers and their better halves. A disoriented B.D. suffers from acute reality lag (Go to the beach? Has it been swept for mines?) while home-fronter Boopsie reveals new independence during her tour of duty with the Malibu Military Family Support Group (What if he comes home in the middle of pilot season?). From shoulder mounted fax machines to acronym studded briefings by Major E. Buzz Fogg, from campus combat over PC to excerpts from Kitty Kelley’s slice ‘n’ dice book on Nancy Reagan, Garry Trudeau takes us where the action is. But when the white flags finally come out, the most serious casualty is Mike, back in his armchair, this time starting at unemployment." -- Back cover"@en ;
