"B.C." Cartoonist Johnny Hart Dies at 76

Just heard the sad news. He died the day before Easter. Link to Washington Post here.

Recently, he occasionally made his strip a Christian pulpit, polarizing readers. His legacy: B.C. was one of the funniest strips when it debuted.

According to his family, he dropped in the saddle, dying at his board. I never met him, and I regret that.

Funeral arrangements to be announced.

Just heard about this from Rick Kirkman on a chat board.
