Aw, Why Can't It Be Blondie That's Going Away?

Cathy Guisewite is the creator of the comic strip Cathy (and I suspect she partly inspired Caroline In The City).  Now, I'm not much of a fan of the strip (go ahead, say it's because I'm not the target audience, I will fully admit to that), but I am a fan of Ms. Guisewite.  She has shown a remarkable sense of humor about things.  Other strips take shots at her.  Frank Cho did it a couple of times in Liberty Meadows.  Stephan Pastis also takes an occasional poke at her (shortly after the strips ran, they were both at a cartoonists' association meeting.  They posed for pictures together).  How can you not respect that?

Today, Guisewite announced that she is ending Cathy after 34 years.  She feels it's time to move on, although she isn't sure to what yet.

Good luck to you, Ms. Guisewite.  You've given voice to a lot of people.  That is no small accomplishment.
