'Peanuts' Creator Sometimes Blue! Family Mortified!

The family of Charles M. Schulz is totally pissed over a new biography about the Peanuts creator. They should be! It contains shocking revelations such as that the cartoonist felt "melancholy." Also, the work is plagued with errors, they say, "including a mention of a housekeeper serving dinner after she no longer worked for the family"! Christ, it's like the 1950s just drove a Model T into the 21st Century and everyone inside it was like "What is wrong with this society!?" It's a fine question they're asking but maybe they should have left the house in the last two decades? Maybe they could have stopped in their time travel and had lunch with Ted Hughes in the 70s!
