I WONDER WHERE:

I WONDER WHY:

I DIDN'T STAY

WHERE I WAS A WEEK AGO

AND A THOUSAND MILES

FROM HERE.

I WONDER WHETHER

I SHOULDN'T GO BACK.

THEY REALLY WEREN' DOING ME MUCH GOOD THERE.

IT WAS TOO OVERCROWDED,

TOO UNDERSTAFFED,

TOO HARD UP FOR MONEY.

BUT THEY WERE:

NICE TO ME,

AND IF I HADN'T GOTTEN

SO DAMN RESTLESS,

IF THEY HADN'T MADE I SO EASY TO ESCAPE...

I'VE BEEN WALKING AWAY

FROM THINGS:

FOR A LONG TIME,

EVER SINCE I COULDN' WALK AWAY FROM HIM.

HE WAS FOULING ME

AND GETTING ME:

IN THE CLINCHES.

I COULDN' GET HIM TO STOP,

AND I COULDN' WALK AWAY.

ALWAYS COMES BACK

THE SAME.

ABOVE THE ROAR:

OF THE CROWD.

THAT ONE:

WILDLY SHRIEKING VOICE.

HE'S PUNCHING

HIS BRAINS OUT.

IT'S MURDER.

WITH THIS FRIEND OF MINE,

JACK BILLINGSLEY.

BIG REAL ESTATE FAMILY.

AND, UM...

ANYWAYS,

OUR CAR BROKE DOWN,

SO I GO TO GE A TOW TRUCK.

I CAN FIX:

LOTS OF THINGS,

BUT, UH, CARS...

DARNED IF OLD:

CRAZY JACK WASN'T GONE

WHEN I GOT BACK.

I IMAGINE WHAT HAPPENED

WAS HE--

JACK GOT THE CAR

STARTED HIMSELF.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

NOW YOU'RE IN HERE

LOOKING FOR HIM:

WHILE HE'S OUT THERE

LOOKING FOR YOU.

YEAH.

DARN OLD CRAZY JACK

OUGHT TO KNOW:

I'D COME INTO A PLACE

LIKE THIS LOOKING FOR HIM.

PROBABLY:

HAD AN ACCIDENT.

IN FACT, I THINK

I READ ABOUT IT.

WHAT?

UH-HUH.

HE AND A GIRL:

NAMED JILL.

YOU READ ABOUT IT,

DIDN'T YOU, BERT?

YEAH.

THEY FELL DOWN A HILL,

AND THEIR BUCKE GOT BROKE.

THEN THEY GO THEIR HEADS BUSTED.

WELL, I GUESS

GET THE POINT.

REACH TO THE TOP

OF YOUR HEAD?

MAYBE YOU'LL FEEL IT.

OK, MAC.

DISAPPEAR.

TO GET THE CHANCE.

I'M MOVING ON NOW.

BERT'S THE LAST PERSON

TO CALL THE COPS.
