Happy 90th birthday, Mort Walker!

Cartoonist Mort Walker turned 90 today. Just as amazing, his strip "Beetle Bailey" celebrates his 63rd year in the newspapers. Michael Cavna spent some time with Walker recently:

I spoke with Walker three years ago when "Beetle Bailey" was celebrating sixty years. I got to visit him at his home in Stamford, CT. What's notable is that Walker is still writing and drawing every day. I saw Walker last year at a public event, and he was still doing well. 90 years young and still going strong, every day. That's something we can all aspire to.

Happy birthday, Mr. Walker!
