Cartoonist Johnny Hart - whose cavemen saw da light - dies at 76

Johnny "B.C." Hart, who, in recent years, turned his cave man cartoon into an argument for traditional religion, including the idea that the universe is meaningful, died earlier this month at the age of 76. Apparently, he died of a stroke at his story board, as any cartoonist would want to do. Go here for info on the trouble hart got into in recent years on account of his overtly religious themes, here for more about him as a man, and here too. Johnny's cave crowd were never good arguments for evolutionary psychology; they acted just like people all the time.
