"Jerkwater" - Color Sunday strip

As part & parcel of the syndicate submission packets, along with a month's worth of daily material, it's prudent, if not expected, to demonstrate skill in the color Sunday strips. Taking advantage of the expanded real-estate by concocting longer narrative sequences is also another good exercise in flexing the funny muscles.
And I still think about this particular aspect of the Southern vocabulary: the "alraht" or "owra" or any number of variations on the "all right" theme that seems to be the routine, catch-all, default acknowledgment of the presence of another person.Yankees either just nod or wave. Alaskans would just ignore you.
