Ageism, one of the last acceptable prejudices. Can you imagine the furor if that jerk said, "This building isn't for the Chinese"?

I'm embarrassed to admit that with Gypsy Rose Lee so long gone, it hadn't occurred to me that June Havoc might still be around.

My father, who dated her briefly either before or just after the war, described her as "a great, fun gal."

Bless her. Condolences to her family.

Thanks, JM, for the Cambridge Comp shout-out. I'm happy to report that you're canonized in the epilogue.
