Archie Chooses Veronica Over Betty!
Yes, folks, after about 70 years in Riverdale High, reports have it that the perpetual comic teen Archie Andrews finally gets down on hand and knee to ask Veronica Lodge to be his wife, leaving poor girl-next-door Betty Cooper (and presumably Reggie Mantle) in tears.
I grew up rooting for Betty, of course. Why should the rich girl have everything, right? She wasn't as sophisticated but I always felt she loved Archie more. Yet, she almost always wound up on the losing end. Facts of life maybe.
Oh well, maybe they just wanted to make the Archie comic a little more realistic. Wouldn't do for kids worldwide to look at things from within a rose-colored bubble...
