Doug Marlette RIP

MSNBC is reporting that Doug Marlette, Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist and the creator of the Kudzu comic strip has died in an automobile accident in rural Mississippi today. I really liked Kudzu, in particular the ongoing church league basketball and softball. He also wrote The Breach which was the best example of southern literature written in the last decade in my opinion. A truly magnificent book that has received far less notice than it deserved.

He will be missed.
