One of my favorite lunatic artists - the tractman himself, Jack Chick - has shuffled off this mortal coil. While I didn't have much to agree with on his ideology, I greatly respected his artistry and passion for getting his particular brand of fire and brimstone out to the unlearned masses. I'll shed a tear next time I see a Lisa's Father on the back of a toilet in a bus station. RIP, you talented zealot.
