RIP Walt Kelly (1913~1973)

Today, October 18 is the 39th anniversary of the death of comic-strip great Walt Kelly. He died on October 18, 1973 after a long illness.

He was, of course, the creator of the world-famous comic strip POGO. I can remember picking out *that* strip to read on the "funnies' pages" of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a kid. When it went away, the world got a little bit colder.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Kelly
You'll never be forgotten as long as I have something to say about it.
