Welcome to "Nobody Loves Rusty!"

Hey there. I'm not much for introductions, so this will be quick and painless.

After scanning the Web for a few seconds the other day, I was shocked to discover that very little in the way of "Mark Trail" scrutiny exists on today's increasingly scrutinizing Internet.

This makes perfect sense, as "Mark Trail" is a hideously boring comic strip replete with confusing, unrealistic plotlines, and improperly placed dialogue bubbles. Most second graders have a better grasp of the natural world after one science assembly than Trail creator Ed Dodd and his successor Jack Elrod could ever dream of. Yet somehow, the strip has existed in its current form for more than 60 years.

I could ponder the consequences of this callous, half-assed daily homage to nature affects American society's attitude towards our dwindling natural splendor. Instead, I plan on making fun of the strip on a daily basis for my amusement, and hopefully yours as well. Please enjoy.
