I don't know if it is legal for universities to reject you after being accepted for something like drunk driving. Probably.

So this is kind of really important. If you didn't pick up on the symbolism, this is the first time that someone who was just a disembodied voice, an authority figure, was drawn. Mr Stronarch has become real. Reality can be weak. It can be hurt. And Mr Stronarch is there now.

Even in his anger and frustration, with every reason to be, in his mind, obnoxious and insulting, Mr. Stronarch still addressed Annie by her correctly gendered name, as shown in Panel 1. That has to count for something.

Also, there must be an interesting reason why Mr. Stornarch has let Vic's pickup truck sit in the driveway, still wrecked, and looking the same as the day it was pulled out of the ditch. I know, I know ! I see a lot of symbolism throughout this comic that others do not see or care about. That reason alone, the reoccurring symbolism, is what makes this comic so much better than other like-minded TG comics, IMO.

This is one of the few times in the comic where an "antagonist" doesn't seem to be a complete jerk. I mean, I kind of get where he's coming from. All he knows is that something happened with Annie that completely destroyed his son, so of course he's mad at her. Even so, he addressed her by her proper name and did not overtly disrespect her.

I like that symbolism you mentioned with the authority figures. It's funny, because I've personally never respected authority as a concept. To me, authority doesn't necessarily mean a person is right, so I have far more respect for someone I see as my equal than for someone who is supposedly my superior. I find it far easier to respect Mr. Stronarch now that we see him as a real person.
