Publisher Comments:

Things are shaking on the West Coast, and it's Sid's fault. He can't bring Boopsie and B.D.'s long-avoided nuptials to the I do moment quickly enough: her breaking water signals the beginning of another new age. Congratulations, it's a baby woman As prequel to this major transition, Desert Storm troopers B.D. and Ray find themselves called back to heavy duty in the streets of South Central. Ray looks on the bright side (At least we're working again, man.). Indeed, their fortunes flare and both soon find themselves cruising the coast as professional highwaymen-CHIPs, with the power to ticket total strangers and close friends alike.

This collection, Quality Time on Highway 1, is tough in its scrutiny of such hot topics as gender bias, both in Congress (the testimony we never heard at the Thomas hearings) and in elementary school. Why does the teacher always call on the boys instead of Alex, and how can Joanie intervene? (Mom, she'll never call on you, send Daddy.) So tough that the Commissioner of Comics condemns Doonesbury and takes over. Garry Trudeau is out, Diego Tutweiler is in, at least until the cast is cleared for correct family values. No one said cartooning was going to be easy. But in this Doonesbury book, Garry Trudeau once again proves that it can be weird, fun, and relevant.
