 " Cosmopolitan, Helen Gurley Brown, Who Gave ‘Single Girl’ a Life in Full, Dies at 90

 By MARGALIT FOX

Quote
Helen Gurley Brown, who as the author of “Sex and the Single Girl” shocked early-1960s America with the news that unmarried women not only had sex but thoroughly enjoyed it — and who as the editor of Cosmopolitan magazine spent the next three decades telling those women precisely how to enjoy it even more — died on Monday in Manhattan. She was 90, though parts of her were considerably younger.

 

 R.I.P. Mme Gurley Brown.

 R.I.P. Mme Gurley Brown.

I'm not familiar with her work, but from that article, it sounds to me like she was part of the problem rather than the solution to many of the ills that plague our society. The cavalier attitude towards sexuality that she seemed to promote through her work doesn't sound to me like a good thing.

RIP Helen.

She wrote one of the most successful book, "Sex and The Single Girl"  and edited Cosmopolitan for over 30 years.  In the 1960's she may have been controversial but by the end of the 70s nearly all of her comments in her book were considered normal.

I feel like a rep. for The Sweathogs...

Us Cooper kids sure got a kick out of Welcome Back, Kotter back in the day.  Happy Days, The Donny & Marie Show, etc.

Actor Ron Palillo Dies

The guy on the right is doing his best Elvis impression!



I don't believe anybody posted about Robert Hegyes.  Surprising that Cheetah's passing got recognition, but not Mr. Hegyes.

Late, but here it is:  Robert Hegyes Dies At 60



Rest in peace, sirs.

Rest In Peace both of you guys. You made me laugh many times over.

I loved Welcome Back Kotter and Happy Days.  Even my Dad wouldn't miss Happy Days if he could help it.

It's the same with a lot of celebrities though. I may not know their name and if someone asked me what Robert Hegyes was best remembered for, for a million dollars, I couldn't answer them. If they showed me a picture, then I'd recognise him.

Just pointing out my surprise that a monkey's passing (albeit celebrity) got recognition over Mr. Hegyes.  I reckon we can't keep track of all celebrities, though and some are bound to fall through the cracks.

I never heard of about half the people who are memorialized in here, and their pictures don't help.

Still, just an observation is all.

To keep on topic, Elvis Presley died today.  Oh, 35 years ago....but still....

...and this is what he looked like 56 years ago...in 1956.  8)
