Is this Rusty’s Pearl Harbor Day?

I’m not sure if Rusty sees this little vignette in an historical light, but he certainly has a deer-in-the-headlights look as he realizes that his downtime is about to be sunk by Mark’s surprise attack of agreeing to take him on that long sought-for fishing trip that no longer seems important.

At the same time, in spite of the fact that Mark Trail (the strip and Dad) has been dragged into the 21st century, Mark seems oblivious to the cynicism of contemporary youth, or that kids no longer accept empty promises. It’s the age-old story of a father being too busy to be around, and by the time he is, the family has grown up and grown past him. Still, we can hope for a better outcome.
