Does anyone remember if the Brown Hat appears in any other comics?

I'm not sure, so I created a category and page for him, let's see if that catches any others. --Jeff (talk) 22:04, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
According to the transcript we have two different Brown Hat Guys here. I'm working on this.--Dgbrt (talk) 21:49, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
I'm inclined to think that Brown Hat is specific to this comic, the brown hat being the 50's style homburg or fedora common to salesmen trying to look respectable... Randall likely added the hats to depict folks from a bygone era, (one of whom has caught up with the trend.) -- IronyChef (talk) 01:49, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

It's probably not in the least important, but the network appears to be a collection of key cities in the US arranged by geographical location. 23:07, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

added a better explanation of the title text. -- Nick,5 Oct 2013 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Has anyone answered the question in the title text? --Ricketybridge (talk) 23:55, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
