Time is running out to take part in a survey in which Bee readers are asked to rate the newspaper's comic strips and a few potential new cartoons. The deadline to rate the comics is midnight Monday.
For the past six weeks, The Bee has been running extra cartoons for readers to rate, but their last appearance will be Saturday.
Already, more than 24,000 ratings have been entered in the survey, and The Bee has received numerous e-mails and letters from readers who did not vote online.
To vote, go to this link. You'll need to register, and that takes only a minute or so. (Note: The registration required is in addition to your normal registration for modbee.com.)
The survey allows you to rank The Bee's existing and trial comics on a scale of 1 to 10; you can vote as often as once a day.
To express yourself beyond simply rating the funnies, you can e-mail your thoughts to Bee features editor Deke Farrow at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to him at The Modesto Bee, Deke Farrow, 1325 H St., Modesto, CA 95356.
