Brant Parker Calls It A Day

In rememberance of Brant Parker.....who has poked fun at political follies for quite some time..

Phew.... from the politicians

Brant Parker, a co-creator of "The Wizard of Id," an award-winning comic strip that is set in medieval times and has poked fun at politics and cultural follies for more than 40 years, died on Sunday at his home in Lynchburg, Va. He was 86.

The cause was complications from Alzheimer’s disease, according to an announcement by the Creators Syndicate, which distributes "The Wizard of Id."

Incidentally, Mr. Parker’s death came eight days after the death of his partner, Johnny Hart, who was best known as the creator of the comic strip "B.C."

Well he musta received mail from him saying that there was a much better future over there.... than here.... plus the fact that they set your biological clock back by fifty years...

Anyway, bless them both....
