Inb4 people try to excuse Ronnie's inexcusable behavior.
Not going to excuse it, but I believe most people are worth saving. I think true sociopaths or whatever Cyndi was are really pretty rare, and most people with issues are really trying to get some help in a fucked up way.
I voted for Michael turning the other cheek because I think he's a pretty introspective guy and that might extend toward compassion for others. I was evenly divided on that and hitting back, and he still might jack Bitterpillsbury Doughboy up but I think he's also resilient enough to stick around and try to figure out wth afterwards to help Ronnie which might work out very well provided the authorities and politically correct type people don't pre-emptively shut everything down. Ronnie desperately needs a real friend and Mike might end up being it. It works that way with guys quite often because we get crap out of the way fast and sometimes those people you come into conflict with early make the best friends later without any unresolved bull or pretensions of being something you're not hanging around.
I'm also voting that way because of my massively caustic cynicism and these days I want to make a personal commitment to believing the world can in fact be a better place.
Yeah it's pretty heavy for a webcomic, sue me. Y'all know I'm nuts anyway.
