When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

VALENTINE'S DAY
You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part. Sally has often referred to Linus as her “Sweet Baboo.” Her dedication to her man seems endless. She has missed out on “tricks and treats” by sitting in a pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin and she was incensed that Linus would snub her a Valentine’s gift in favor for his teacher, Miss Othmar.

Joy Behar Still Floating in Hot Water Weeks After Controversial Comment

On February 13, 2018, the women of ABC’s The View discussed Mike Pence and his faith. As is often the case, co-host Joy Behar threw in her two cents with a touch of humor but the “joke” fell flat. She stated that Pence might have a mental illness because he claimed to have heard Jesus speak to him. Pence himself (who didn’t actually see the exchange) wasn’t amused.

“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said during an appearance on C-SPAN following the controversial remarks. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”

Since then, ABC has received over 30,000 calls since the Media Research Center began a campaign to hold the TV show co-hosts accountable for “spewing anti-Christian bigotry,” reports Fox News.

According to Fox News the MRC president, Brent Bozell published an open letter to ABC News calling for the apology. As of this morning, ABC had received 30,588 angry calls and advertisers, including Clorox, Gerber and Oreo have received at least 6,000 calls.

“I am sure the advertisers of The View will be just as appalled as I am about the anti-Christian remarks made on the show,” Bozell wrote.

To date, no formal apology has been given, but the subject was brought up the following day after the controversial remarks were made and Meghan McCain apologized to Pence on behalf of the show in the clip below.
