Sally Forth is not one of my favorite comic strips. It's all right, but nothing special. But it's pretty obvious that creator Francesco Marciullano understands Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) . I have it, and I dread the coming of cooler weather and shorter days. Every year I look for something that I can look forward to or hold onto to keep from going under in full-blown Winter depression.
One thing I will be holding onto this Winter -- my fantasy baseball team The Astro City Irregulars won the championship today. Right now I feel like that ought to be enough to keep my head above the rising tide. We'll see how it feels in January. But I've been playing fantasy baseball for 6 or 7 years and I've never won it all before, so I'm going to enjoy this as long as I can.
