Love her or hate her, after thirty-four years, today we say goodbye to "Cathy" from Cathy Guisewite's comic strip.

It's become fashionable to mock "Cathy," but hers was the first female-centered comic strip as women began their shift to the workplace during the women's movement. She wasn't a super hero, or an orphaned child, or a kindly old busybody who solved problems, just an Every Girl facing the same problems and challenges that her many readers grappled with.

Goodbye, Cathy--and congratulations--I hear you and Irving are expecting a girl!
