The funnies are supposed to be funny, right? Not always. Newspaper readers are mourning the death of Lisa Moore. The Funky Winkerbean character has lost her battle with breast cancer. Creator Tom Batiuk has fought his own battle with cancer. He drew from personal experience to tell Lisa's Story. Ultimately, it's a love story that all cancer survivors share. Join Regina Brett for a conversation with Tom Batiuk on facing cancer with hope and humor this morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
