I know… who?
It’s Chris Muir’s sister. Chris is the one responsible for Day by Day , likely the best political cartoon on the web, anymore. I noticed that Chris was running a slug which said he was currently dealing with a family emergency. I didn’t know what that family emergency was, but it certainly didn’t sound good.
Captain Ed says: 
I received an e-mail from our friend Chris Muir this morning that his sister passed away yesterday. Please continue your prayers and good thoughts for Chris and his family, who will be struggling with this tragic loss. Day By Day will return, but in the meantime, he and his family need time to themselves.
Yep. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris and his family, today.
