    • Hi, Linda, Thanks so much for writing in. You were not alone in alerting us to this unfortunate fact. Here’s what our response was to the other reader who asked us about it: When we did this cartoon, we had no idea about how he died. Neither did any of our Editors at our syndicate, or any of the newspaper editors that ran the strip in their papers. I myself learned of the fact from a reader on Facebook, after the cartoon was published. If we’d known about how he died, we would never have created this cartoon. We apologize for this. It’s never our intention to create cartoons that may rub folks the wrong way. Thanks for alerting us to this!
