Mr. Bil Keane

The Family Circus

c/o King Features

888 Seventh Avenue, 2nd Floor

New York, NY 10019

Dear Mr. Keane:

I can't possibly be the first person to notice this, but maybe the first to say so directly: The Family Circus is insufficiently cute.

With Dolly and Billy bogged down in predictable pre-adolescent nihilism and Barfy out stumping for animal rights, only Jeffy and PJ are left to serve up the cute.

This won't do.

I know you're getting up in years and perhaps your encroaching mortality has bled into your work. Would you mind finding some other outlet for this (organized religion? needlepoint?) and keep the Circus as fuzzy and non-threatening as possible?

Sincerely,

Kenneth Cleaver
