"Peanuts" Creator Retires, Strip to End 50 Year Run

markhb writes "Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz will retire to concentrate on his recovery from colon cancer. According to the announcement, the final new daily will run January 3rd, 2000; the final new Sunday page will run February 13. Following those dates, the strip will go into reruns from 1974. After 50 years of the strip, I think he's earned his rest. Godspeed, Sparky."
