Charles Darwin and Abe Lincoln share a birthday, Superman makes his radio debut, President Clinton is acquitted in his impeachment trial, and Charles Schulz dies, all on this day.
2000: Cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the comic strip "Peanuts," dies of a heart attack at the age of 77 in Santa Rosa, California. Schulz, who had been battling health issues and was diagnosed with colon cancer in late 1999, had retired from drawing the strip in December 1999, with the last daily strip appearing on Jan. 3, 2000. At that point, five more original Sunday edition "Peanuts" strips had yet to be published. The last original "Peanuts" strip was published the day after Schulz's death, on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2000.
