As the East Coast moves through the day and assesses Sandy's devastation, the rest of us watch, pray and think of how we will help in the days ahead.

Little Orphan Annie … Farewell

Annie and her dog, Sandy, from the “Annie” comic strip, are shown in this undated cartoon from Tribune Media Services. It was drawn by Leonard Starr, who succeeded Harold Gray as cartoonist upon Gray’s death in 1968. After the Sunday (yesterday, June 13), Annie, her father figure and frequent rescuer, Daddy Warbucks, and her beloved pooch will disappear from the funny pages. They will have a future, but for now, where that will be is unknown.

Question: Were you a fan of the Little Orphan Annie cartoon strip?
