Good Grief! It's Snoopy's Birthday, Charlie Brown!

Yeah, yeah, today is the 50th anniversary of Sputnik's launch into space. Whoop-de-doo. While the Russians are kicking up a goose-stomping storm and everyone else is reveling the fact that we've wasted billions of dollars on space exploration for the past half decade, I'm observing a far more exciting birthday: Snoopy's! In 1950, Snoopy made his debut in Charles Schwarz's Peanuts comic strip. As his best friend Woodstock would say, "Meeee meee mee mee eeep peep peep!"
