Charles Addams 100 -- January 7, 2012

Happy 100th birthday to one of my favorite cartoonists, Charles Addams.  When I was young, I enjoyed The Addams Family television show.  Later on I saw his cartoons in The New Yorker and then discovered books of them at the library.  I realized later that the Addams Family was not like other families on television.  The parents loved each other and showed it.  They spent time with their children and encouraged their curiosity.  The children respected their parents.  Very strange.
