Jan Berenstain, RIP

The mother of cartoon bears has died. In 2005, I wrote an obituary for her husband, Stan Berenstain, hereabouts. It responded to a semi-famous column by Charles Krauthammer (“I hate the Berenstain Bears”) and described the Berenstain Bears book Old Hat New Hat as a classic of conservatism.
