"Cathy" Calling It Quits

To quote the only memorable thing that our 38th President (as Archie Bunker would say, "Look it up, little goil.") ever said, "My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over." (Well, that gaffe during his first debate with his eventual successor about there being "no Communist domination of Eastern Europe" was memorable, but more for the benightedness of it than the profundity.)
Sorry. I seem to have gotten off-topic before even revealing what today's topic is. So...without further digression, we resume our regularly scheduled post, already in progress:
The Comics Curmudgeon reported a couple of days ago that the long running sad excuse for a parody of a comic strip known as Cathy will come to a long overdue end at the beginning of October.  One can only hope that alleged cartoonist Cathy Guisewite's plans for her retirement include maybe finally learning to draw.  
Today's Cathy strip
Actually, I can't be too happy about this development.  After all, given the sad state of the modern newspaper comic strip, it's highly likely that Cathy's place in your local paper will be taken by something even more painfully unfunny and crudely drawn (unless, of course, they already carry Pearls Before Swine.)
