2477.Just broken by the WWeek: Callahan, the famous PDX quad who draws teh politically-incorrect funnay, has passed on after a year of fighting additional ailments apparently brought on by surgical complications.
He was 59 years old, which, I suppose if you had asked him, was a whole lot of years longer than he thought he'd have gotten.
The WWeek note can be seen at http://blogs.wweek.com/news/2010/07/24/john-callahan-dead-at-60/
Also, centered at the bottom of his website's front page (http://callahanonline.com) underneath his portrait photo is simply the notation "1951-2010", which seems about right in tone - Callahan may have had many moods, but public sentimentality never seemed to be one of them.
