we should get Blair in here...

back in the mists of time there was a really incredible Pigpen feature in the Golden Road.

Hm, wonder if he's still got the Word file. Though I have a bad feeling we were still using typewriters then.

yes, Snoopy

I'm pretty sure. At that period, Peanuts was ubiquitous.

When she was first in college, my sister went out with a guy who'd taken piano from Pigpen!

don't know a thing about chocolate george

though when I was interviewing him about something else David Nelson had a great story about the origin of Pigpen's name--basically, one of the girls in their crowd in Palo Alto just called him that one night and he got this horrible look on his face because he knew he'd be stuck with it forever. I'll see if I can dig it out and transcribe it.
