Darrin Bell is getting letters from Candorville fans asking why his feature has been dropped from the LA Times without notice. It’s not just his feature, but also La Cucaracha and Mallard Fillmore that have disappeared. The blog, LA Observed, also mentions that Mr. Boffo is also a casualty in this decision. Both Darrin and La Cucaracha creator Lalo Alcaraz have urged their readers to contact the paper in protest.
UPDATE: LA Observed reports that due to reader feedback, La Cucaracha has been reinstated, but Heathcliff was dumped to make room.
