Sally Forth is an interesting strip because it can focus on quite serious topics at times. I guess it did this back in the 80's some also? I just recall it being mainly focused on Sally and her boss and now Ted gets to be on center stage quite a bit.
Oh, well. Bravo to Sally Forth for tackling such a tough subject. I don't recall many jokes when I went through this with my mother but there was music (I don't believe disco was on the playlist). We all know how this story line is going to end unless Ted's dad bounces back like Ric Flair and jumps out of bed screaming, "I hate disco!" and then this would be an excellent example of disco music saving a life.
