So contemporary. So 21st century. So wrong. Let’s return to ancient baby boomer times: A.D. 1973. A reality show used to mean National Geographic. Everyone thinks the pop culture genre was invented around 2000. It was re-invented. A daring series hit television in 1973: an out-the box idea to do live running footage of theRead the Rest…

The Great Baby Boomer Escape

“I beg you, pleeease don’t ship me off again.” My mother would bristle. “You’re not being shipped off, young man. It’s a summer camp. Everyone goes to summer camp.” Every kid did. It was a baby boomer suburban ritual, supposed to build character and camaraderie. Oh yes, it also gave parents a much-needed break forRead the Rest…

Some people call me a one role baby boomer wonder, but I’ll take it. It’s not like I didn’t have any career after Wonder Woman, but that’s a tough act to follow. I always had the looks. I was Miss World USA in 1972. Sure, I’m not Helen Hayes but I was good enough to be inRead the Rest…

An annual list of most stolen passwords online has been released. The most popular filched password is…password. Hard to believe. Number 2: 123456. Hard to believe.

I’m a household name, at least to baby boomers. In the New York pop culture art scene of the 1960s and 70s, only Andy Warhol was a bigger celebrity. He had that charisma and eccentric glitter personality that attracted media attention. My creativity was everywhere but not me. Like Warhol, I began as a commercialRead the Rest…
