Not to cheapen anyone's grief when a beloved cartoon dies, but the protest from fans of "Family Guy" after the Griffins' family pet passed seems a bit disproportionate. First, it's not as if the character's voice actor is going anywhere ¿ that would be creator Seth MacFarlane, no stranger to the value of shock in TV ratings ¿ and second, if there's any show that exists beyond the laws of nature, it's this one. But by all means, keep signing those petitions.
