Before Opus craved herring, before Homer lusted for Duff beer, there was the lazy cat who loved lasagna. Cartoonist Jim Davis spoke to the National Press Club about using the image of the feisty feline to support children's literacy programs. His speech is timed to help kick off National Scholarship Month.
