A familiar newspaper comic strip inspired Martha McColloughs digital print Jills Crazy Wisdom (Mary Worth). She explained, Jill is drunk at a wedding rehearsal, and when she says Save yourself! Don't believe in lies! she is actually warning the bride not to fall for the fantasy of romantic love. But with a few slight alterations, she looks like she's being taken away by the secret police, and is warning us not to fall for authoritarian propaganda. On a more elevated level, she's delivering the message of the Buddha, Wake up! So Jill is right all around.
