Santayana Zerbina

[Zippy, October 31, 2018.]

In today’s Zippy, Zippy and Zerbina have (again) been transformed into 1950s romance-comics characters. “It’s not so bad, Zippy!” says Zerbina. “Maybe we’ll be happier living our lives in th’ 1950s!” Zippy isn’t so sure.

Like Zerbina, I have the George Santayana aphorism in my head in the form of learn from and doomed. But what Santayana wrote: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
