GOODBYE, CHARLIE

(From 2009)

GOODBYE, CHARLIE
In honor of the late Charles Schultz

Most cartoon characters remain frozen in time. Though they’ve been around almost 50 years the members of the Peanuts gang are in some unspecified elementary school holding pattern. But what if they had been allowed to age like the rest of us?

CHARLIE BROWN:
Operates Good Grief Counseling Inc., which specializes in manic-depressives and people who are just having a bad day. Moonlights as a pitching coach at high school and college levels. Married to Marcie. They have a roundheaded son who wears glasses.

LINUS:
Developer of Security Blanket Software, which is a hot item on the New York Stock Exchange. Worth millions but is actively involved in charitable causes, including the Great Pumpkin 5K Fun Run every Halloween. Only man who makes Bill Gates nervous.

LUCY:
Serving her seventh term in Congress. Never married. Claims she hasn’t thought about Schroeder in years, but her ringtone is Beethoven.

SCHROEDER:
After years on the classical performing circuit, he runs a piano bar in Carmel, Calif. Won’t let anybody lean on his piano.

SALLY:
Never quite got over being spurned by Linus. Has a cat named Sweet Baboo. Sells Mary Kay.

PEPPERMINT PATTY:
Women’s athletic director at a midwestern university. Her fashion credo: “Sandals go with everything.”

SNOOPY:
In dog years, he’ll be 350. What do you think would’ve happened to him? Linus has created an endowment at Daisy Hill Puppy farm in Snoopy’s memory.

Try a thought experiment: What would conservatives have said if a group of loud, scruffy leftists had brought guns to the public events of Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush? 
— E.J. Dionne

People often say with pride, “I’m not interested in politics.” They might as well say, “I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future, or any future.”
    — Martha Gellhorn, writer/journalist   (1908-1998)

“If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.”—Mother Teresa

The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls. –— Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)
