News arrived today of the death of cartoonist Bil Keane. His single panel comic strip The Family Circus first appeared in newspapers around the country in the early 1960s. The only reason I read the Philadelphia Bulletin was for the comics of course, and The Family Circus was a favorite. [Keane started there as a staff artist.] The shenanigans of Billy, Dolly, Jeffy (baby P.J. came later) and their witless canine companion Barfy, were all part of the Sunday ritual.
