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.

“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.
