Happy birthday to Mort Walker who turns 91 today

Living legend cartoonist Mort Walker turned 91 years old today. Normally, I let Tom Spurgeon call out the birthdays, but hitting 91 and still drawing deserves a bit of praise here as well.

Happy birthday, Mort!

My first NCS Boca Raton and they sat me at the Walker table next to a guy w/ a chest full of medals. Mr. Walker and the entire family could not have been nicer to me. An honor. Best wishes for 91 more.

I still treasure the letter I received from him in 1978. What a great guy and cartoonist!
