This is the first appearance of another of Dirtygirl’s friends and bandmates, Millicent. For some reason, she kind of reminds me of Betty Rubble from The Flintstones. Maybe it’s the black hair and the big, round eyes? But she’s like a PUNK ROCK Betty Rubble.
I think this is also the first appearance of Borington’s local newspaper, The Borington Ballyhoo. Judging by the headline, that military cover-up of the school and hospital explosion is going swimmingly!
