Bil Keane, 1922-2011: R.I.P.

89 years old, of congestive heart failure.

One of the all-time greats of cartooning. I didn't generally read Family Circus except on Sundays, and then only if it was one of the strips in which one of the kids went on an expedition; Keane usually drew these as a dotted line on the landscape, with explanatory notes as to where and why the kid lingered at any one area.
