Al Capp, creator of Li'l Abner, Dogpatch, Sadie Hawkins Day, Fearless Fosdick, Moonbeam McSwine, Mammy Yokum, and Daisy Mae, schmoos, and too many other wonderful places/things/individuals to list, was born September 28, 1909, and died November 5, 1979. Out of all of them, I suppose only Sadie Hawkins is going to extend beyond my generation.
