Old man, dying medium....

In an odd way, I think that it's pretty much appropriate that Walt Wallet is still alive; that's because the over-emphasis on characters who remember where they were when the Korean War broke out is not only a reminder that there are way too damned many dinosaurs roaming the comics page, the medium itself is pretty much on the way out. I should think that twenty or thirty years from now, a person looking at discussions of newspaper comics would sort of lump them together with arguing over bear-baiting, scrimshaw and other obsolete forms of entertainment. This means that Walt's death will pretty much coincide with the death of the medium itself.
