I do prefer to trust Heather Mallick over Terry Glavin on this one.

Jeeezuz!

That's a shitload of tweets; thank god for the auto LJ-cut!

I salute you for persevring. And I agree. In fact, I'd trust Heather Mallick over a lot of people on a lot of things.

You're welcome.

As to that Peanuts strip...it does look like Schulz drew the rifle himself there. Drawing as much of the strip with his own hands as possible was something he kept trying to do right up to his last day.

I think it *was* Sparky after all!

One forgets that Schulz wasn't above commenting on issues of the day; or that America's lunatic gun laws have been one of those issue for quite some time.

This link (http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1997/12/30) suggests the cartoon is, in fact, the unaltered version.

Have you read the late-life interviews of him conducted by Gary Groth? In very different ways, he (Shulz) and Bill Watterson remain my newspaper cartoonist heroes.
