The Death of Cathy.

There is going to be a death this weekend. Cathy, the comic strip character obsessed with dieting and shopping, ends her THIRTY FOUR YEAR run. Cathy's creator is Cathy Guisewite. She's ending the strip to spend more time with her family.

The death of Cathy marks the end of an era for American women. That's according to LA Times columnist Meghan Daum, and she joins Madeleine to talk about the end of this era for women.
