On October 3rd I hope we will all be able to put aside our fury over the audacity of some Muslim cleric wanting to build something that isn't a mosque somewhere that isn't Ground Zero, to mourn the passing of one of our most beloved and cherished cultural institutions.
That's right. On October 3rd, the final Cathy strip will be published.
Somehow, we'll have to find a way to live in a world without the light (some might say undetectably light) comedic touch of our favorite neurotic mess, and in which Muslims will be swimming a mere two blocks away from the hallowed hole above which the Freedom Tower might someday majestically rise.
Truly, the end must be nigh.
