No 'Cathy' retirement bump for 'Cul de Sac'?

I've been reading a lot of articles about papers replacing Cathy, and what they're choosing and haven't seen anyone add Cul de Sac yet. Does anyone know of a paper that's added it?

Stone Soup seems to have picked up a few. Rhymes with Orange, Red and Rover, Tundra, Arlo and Janis, nothing, and the new Dogs of C-Kennel are some replacements I've seen.

The end of 'Cathy' comes Sunday

Cathy Guisewite is ending her strip 'Cathy' on Sunday and there's been some newspaper articles wondering how it'll end. Here's how I think it will NOT end:

With Cathy having shed 20 pounds and gotten a full-body wax for a flourishing career as a swimsuit model;

With Cathy and Irving putting their son in a rocket and sending him from their doomed planet;

With Cathy and Irving waving goodbye to their children as the train leaves for Hogwarts;

With Cathy having died to save the universe from the Anti-Monitor;

With Cathy and Irving riding a sled through the woods;

With Cathy gunned down on a city street after seeing a Zorro movie while her young son watches in horror;

With Cathy frozen in a block of carbonite;

With Cathy elected as the first female President of the US;

With Cathy drowning while saving a young child from a swollen stream;

With Cathy and Irving walking off, saying "This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship";

With protests throughout the Muslim world.

Spurgeon, among others, urges Cul de Sac replace Cathy

Cathy Guisewite is retirng her strip Cathy. I've seen this comment more than once now, and here's Tom Spurgeon articulating it the best:

I urge every paper that is looking for a replacement to consider Cul-De-Sac. I think it's the finest strip going with a client list short of where it should be, but it really needs to sit in your paper for a while to have the best chance for people to pick up on its rhythms. It's not the kind of strip that benefits from replacing something that's been running and that has fans that could demand its return.
