Good Grief, Charlie Brown!

How could Charlie Brown do this to Linus, of all people?

Two days in a row, Charlie Brown ruthlessly mocks Linus for the latter's belief in the Great Pumpkin. As one who has also been frequently mocked, shouldn't CB be a little more empathetic? Look at the particular glee in the second strip, and the horribly sarcastic smile in the first.

Well, the second one really is a bit harsh. But I liked the first one. Didn't notice the glee in Charlie Brown's face until you pointed it out. I generally like the idea of referencing the old TV special in this way. Everybody remembers the movie. It brings back nice memories although Charlie's that mean.
