A case of art imitating strife

I enjoyed a funny coincidence reading last Tuesday’s Globe. First, I read the article about the ongoing feud among the Demoulas family over the management of their fine grocery chain (“An ouster at the top in grocery family feud,” Page A1, June 24).

Then, on the Comics pages of the g section, “For Better or for Worse” featured the two young Patterson children squabbling about how to run their lemonade stand. The mother’s statement in the last panel says it all: “Never go into business with relatives.”
