Just one post today, and a sad one: Chuck Jones, of Looney Tunes fame, is dead at 89. He was not only a creator of great cartoons (including “Rabbit Hood,” “Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century,” “What’s Opera, Doc?”, “Nelly’s Folly,” “One Froggy Evening,” too many fine Pepe Le Pew shorts to count, and–wait for it–“Martian Through Georgia”). He was also the author of one of the funniest books I’ve ever read: Chuck Amuck, his autobiography.

R.I.P.
