Cecil C. Addle, by Ray Collins
Cecil C. Addle ran in the editorial page of the Seattle P.I. newspaper from 1975 through 1979. Cecil could usually be found sitting on an old log in deep discussion with his friend Dipstik Duck. Politics and environmental issues in the Puget Sound area were their favorite fodder, and they had a strong local following.
