February 12, 2010 will mark the tenth anniversary of Charles Schulz’ passing. In 32 years of life (wow!) his is the only “celebrity” passing that moved me to tears.

The above is one of my favorite individual panels in all of Peanuts. Hilarious (say “Lobkowitz stopped his annuity!” out loud and see if you don’t agree) and historically accurate.

Charles Schulz set the bar, then took it with him when he died.
