There's a whole lot of eulogizing to be done and I don't really think I have it in me to do it. I don't have the words to deal with Jim Varney, Screamin' Jay Hawkins or the lead singer from Foghat, much as I would like to. But I would like to say a few words about a man who influenced my art and life more than i'd like to admit. Charles Schulz, creator of "Peanuts," died on Saturday, the day before his final comic appeared in the Sunday papers. He drew Peanuts for an unprecedented 50 years, 1950-2000. Every single strip was drawn by him, no assistants or fill-ins. Over 18,000 individual comic strips from one hand, one pen. That's what I want to do. No matter how much licensing and merchandising and whatever he did, the comic was always his voice alone, a voice filled with humanity. I'm kind of at a loss for words. Sorry. I guess this is why people don't ask me to speak at funerals too often. I don't really know how to end this.
