Good writing

Right now I'm enjoying some good writing: For Better or For Worse. It's one of my favorite comic strips, and I own a lot of the books, but I never found out how the story ended, so I was glad to find this site, which has a gigantic archive. I always admired this strip's writing. Although it's sometimes sappy (and what's wrong with that, anyway?) it doesn't veer away from real problems-- the difficulties of caring for an elderly parent/partner disabled by a stroke, for example, or the death of a beloved pet. This is an unusual thing in a comic strip, and I'm enjoying reading through it again.
