Buy why? Why would the comic strip Mary Worth quote Daniel Johnston?
Worse, why would they attribute it wrong? Would the writer have used the quote (not the most insightful) if she'd known it was a Jad Fair lyric, not a Daniel Johnston lyric? When did Daniel out-cool Jad? (I think it might be when the movie The Devil and Daniel Johnston came out.)
The world of the Sunday funnies is a strange and mind-boggling place. But I'm not the only one wondering about this.
