WHAT WORKS, WHAT DOESN'T: My brief (two words or less) reviews of the last two weeks of Day by Day, with links to the relevant cartoons:

OK
Groan
Heh heh
Almost punny
OK
Heh
Good stuff
Sermonic
Yawn
???
OK
???
Yoda!
Yawn

Overall, I'd say the last two weeks were too thin for my taste and, once, Muir slipped into outright preaching. Bad, cartoonist, bad! On the other hand, the art is improving and the use of color, in particular, was a bit better. One interesting effect is the weird chart-like background that continues from panel to panel. It was probably a time saving device but it works. Also, Muir's sense of the absurd tends to come out best when he's dealing with Middle Easterners; thus the Yoda! cartoon above and earlier cartoons about food relief and a stolen lawn ornament. Back to work!
