Question of the Day

Yesterday's question asked: What job in journalism was held by Doonesbury’s fictional Rick Redfern, until he was offered the "best buyout package" after 33 years? That would be investigative reporter for the Washington Post.

Congratulations to Edward Tenner for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Jeanne KirkKen WalkerClaudine LaforceChris LombardiHollywood HighlandsPaul BoydJohn Wall and Amy Zipkin for getting part or all of that answer right!

As for today's question, here it is: This female comic strip creator changed her first name to a male moniker so her work would be seen by editors, which eventually led to a popular comic strip series featuring a female reporter. Who is the comic strip creator, and what was the name of her creation?
