very sad news, and nothing to do with multiple sclerosis, but mr. whipple has died. those of us who grew up being admonished not to squeeze will mourn, and wonder what will come next? who will sell us bathroom tissue as well as mr. whipple did? those animated bears are cute, but a little obvious. mr. whipple was a real person, someone we could relate to, someone we might even have felt we knew. with his passing, a great void has opened that not even the new maytag man can fill.
