Farewell Opus: I'll miss you

Farewell Opus; Hello Pete, The Perfectly Practical Pig : NPR: "This just in: The bowtie-wearing, tuba-playing, onetime vice presidential candidate on the National Radical Meadow Party ticket is headed for that great comic strip in the sky; cartoonist Berkeley Breathed announced today that he is giving up his Sunday comic strip Opus to focus on children's books instead."

I think I've been reading Bloom County/Opus for over 20 years. That's a big hole to fill in my Sunday paper reading. I hope his closet of anxieties is locked, never to open again, and he's left on the top of the hill on a warm summer night, gazing at the stars.
