Sim Simon one of the co-creators with Matt Groening of “The Simpsons” has died today. Mr. Simon lost a long hard fought battle with cancer, and is best known for his work on the first 13 episodes of the Simpsons. Many of the writers who worked the early days, considers him to have given the heart and soul to the characters. He made them three dimensional by developing their personalities, and not going from one skit to another. As the longest running series on TV, this small fact had to have had played a roll.
