Comic Strips  - 
 
Harold LeDoux, who spent most of his life illustrating one of the most famous comic strips to appear in this or any other newspaper, died earlier this month in Dallas. The man who drew Judge Parker was 88.

I stayed at the Regency Hyatt during the recent "Groundhog Day" snowstorm. This was a pleasant surprise! Great selection at the deli, helpful staff, and an amazing selection of groceries! My only quibble... the cashiers need to add utensils and napkins to the bags for customers who buy deli items!
