Even Sparky's kids don't like Lynn...

I have been reading the Michaelis biography of Charles Schulz, and while it was interesting I found it to be pretty flawed. Anyway, I was following up with some further reading on the book and this is what Charles Schulz's son Monte had to say about about the book and Lynn:

"He did interview Cathy Guisewite, but then called back to ask her, if you can believe it, whether or not my dad “came on to her.” Is he joking? Cathy knew Dad for more than twenty years, and except for one or two lines, David left her out of the book in favor of Lynn Johnston who provided much more provocative information, much of which (particularly in the first draft) is silly and self-serving."

Heh. I wonder what nonsense Lynn told Michaelis that was in the first draft.
