Note: The current story-arc begins at Strip 621

For some reason, I forgot to put a date at the top of the last several strips. I'm back to dating them again now.
The 19th Century White House Teleport O-Mat was last seen in Strip 302. Yo gotta admit, it's the perfect tool for the job.
Like any nerd, I've always disliked the concept of "Meanwhile... in the past". So I thought I'd point out that, while any amount of time may have passed for Quantum Cop and Crook, it's only been seconds for Casey and Andy. Also, I give an explanation for why they didn't immediately return.
Interestingly, Casey and I came up with a time travel genre intended to be used for tabletop RPG games. It featured naturally occuring "gates" that connected two times. If you step through a 57 year gate, you go back 57 years. If you waited an hour then returned, you'd return an hour later in the present. Both ends of the gate move forward in time at the normal rate. So it was possible to say "meanwhile, in the past" in that context.
