Bil Keane's "Family Circus" comics entertained readers with a simple but sublime mix of humor and traditional family values for more than a half century. The appeal endured, the author thought, because the American public needed the consistency.
Bil Keane, who started drawing the one-panel cartoon "Family Circus" in February 1960, died Tuesday at age 89.
A rare auction of signed William Faulkner books and personal items has drawn international interest, but few on the town square of the author's hometown were aware of the bidding set for Tuesday at Christie's in New York.
Ironically, Faulkner likely would have cringed to know his personal items are to be part of a public bidding war, Mr. Griffith said.
Mr. Griffith, however, said tight finances won't allow him to place a bid.
