Why vote out any comic strips?

Why is there now an online vote to replace a comic strip with “Phoebe the Unicorn,” when all last week it was added in a space next to the Super Quiz? Please just keep it in that spot and then we won’t have to read the onslaught of “you dumped my comic, so I am going to dump The Herald” letters to the editor that everybody knows will be coming. I would understand the deletion of a comic strip that is ending due to retirement, death, etc., but to end a strip that is currently being written and telling a ongoing tale daily, especially when you have already squeezed in Phoebe, to me, just doesn’t seem logical. Why should any comic be voted out? Modify the comics section to add Phoebe but also keep the current strips for all of us to read and share. Do the right thing, Herald!
