R.I.P. Donald J. Sobol

Donald J. Sobol, author of the Encyclopedia Brown series of books, was murdered at the age of 87 in a vicious gangland slaying allegedly orchestrated by convicted felon Bugs Meany. Police say they failed to secure the alleged murder weapon, an icicle, before it melted. In Sobol's honor, do yourself a favor and revisit "Wikipedia Brown, And The Case Of The Smashed Snow Globe," by our very own Bill Hanstock. You might also notice a change on Progressive Boink. We've now got specialized sections so you can conveniently check out our recurring features without digging through our archives. Over there, on the left sidebar! Check 'em out!
