Jane Fonda

Roger Vadim transformed Brigitte Bardot and Jane Fonda into the blond sex fantasy woman for men. Yet, when Jane Fonda began campaiging against the Vietnam war she dropped the blond, artificial hair and looked like a real woman with real passions. Brigitte Bardot found her passion for animal rights when her days as a sex goddess were over. Surely Jane becoming politically aware and finding a cause she believed in and making a difference to the world was preferable to living her life as a sex object whose whole point was to make films for the sexual gratification of men, and then to find women for threesomes to please her husband.

On the subject of the male fantasy of having threesomes - according to this logic, then all men should try to marry or have partners who are bisexual. Interestingly enough, when Johnny Depp married Amber Heard who is bisexual, he welcomed her bisexualtiy and the deal was that she was allowed to sleep with other women. However, when it came to reality and Amber was flirting openly in front of him with other women, he was unable to take this. Johnny Depp was in every man's dream situation but it ended up driving him mad and the marriage broke up.

You criticized Tom Hayden for taking drugs - yet so did John Lennon. No-one today would say that Lennon taking drugs diminished his campaign to end the Vietnam war. At least he wasn't killing and raping, like a lot of the US soldiers were. Neither was Hayden.

Surely, if having threesomes with 2 women is every man's fantasy, if Jane Fonda, who was extremely beautiful at this time, was prepared to go along with this, then why did Vadim get bored and dump her? I am somewhat confused by this fantasy - does it translate to reality? Bill Hicks, the commedian who died in the 90's used to speak about this fantasy. Yet when his girlfriend offered to have a threesome with him, he refused saying that he wouldn't want to tell his children that he had a threesome with their mother. Would men want this for their own daughters? I think you have misrepresented Tom Hayden, Jane's second husband here. Whatever his shortcomings were, he was right to campaign against the Vietnam war, which has been generally accepted as wrong. I think that getting into a cause was preferable to finding women for thresomes to please her husband. A very important ingredient in relationships is respect - does a woman who is willing to have threesomes to please her husband have his respect I wonder?

Everything that happens in America eventually makes its way across to England.
Now there are calls over here to tear down the statues of Admiral Nelson in Trafalgar Square, Oliver Cromwell in front of Parliament, and Winston Churchill.
We can all find different reasons to want someone's statue torn down.

Statues are the Father to the Man
September 13, 2017 | 02:45 AM

I, too, remember walking past those iconic and historical remembrances, grand statues in the form of stone and bronze. These statues towered above us, my brother and I, as my father would have us guess who they were first and then quiz us on the history of each one. What a learning experience and life adding event. No more soon, well there is always Hiawatha, the Great Indian Chief.

Where to Go When Ya Gotta Go
September 13, 2017 | 01:15 AM

A bit long here but ! Sitting on my perch as a "Blue Dog Democrat", I am increasingly more embarrassed by my life-long DEM Party affiliation and the Liberals who have hijacked American history in the name of progressive political correctness. For better or worse, I like our American statues. Not because I necessarily agree with everything those so honored stood for in their times, but because they are physical and intriguing reminders of how we got to where we are today. Great teaching tools for those who might not know otherwise. To wit, I remember all the years of walking through NYC's Central Park (and other places around town) with my very young daughters when they were just kids, who would say "Daddy, who's that?" And I'd tell them a short story (kids love stories). And as they grew older and they learned more about these figures in school, they would say "Hey Dad, you know that statue we always see in the park? Well we're learning about the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant, and Robert E. Lee in class right now." Which made the statue an iconic and "real" reference point in their educations. All of which is to say ! While we don't ever want to glorify a Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, or Hussein with such honors in a public square, their stories still need to be told. So let's be very careful before throwing the baby out with the bath and tearing everything down in the name of progressive political and social agenda. Not to mention the more significant "pigeon poop" problem we'd have here in New York City without our statues.

Your story brought back vivid memories of Sandy. I'm in Marine Park. We were lucky enough just to have lost power. A wonderful young man who had gone to school with my daughter, organized a sandwich drive through Go Fund Me and word of mouth. People helped make sandwiches to bring to Gerritsen Beach. This went on for weeks. David Evans, the whirlwind behind this movement is a true New Yorker, the kind we all grew up with. I know there will be David's on hand in Brooklyn, organizing for those in need from Harvey, Irma and whatever else gets us. Brooklyn is a place where real people live, not like schmucks like Ted Cruz. Keep writing the truth Denis.

Jerry, Great Story, but I outdid you all. Several years ago, before I went on my self imposed diet, I had the biggest éclair known to man. It is approximately a foot long and filled with more custard than your local bakery has in stock. The tradition is that since most people can not finish it in one sitting, they give you a takeout bag at the same time you are served it. It is one of those traditional diners in rural Pa that serves this gastronomic delight! Oh for the good ole days.

Let's face it Jerry ! It's Madison Avenue "Mad Men" like us that have led to this situation. Over 100 years ago, advertising agencies like J. Walter Thompson and N.W. Ayer advertised simple brand solutions to rather simple and obvious consumer problems. Like, my kids need new shoes, so hello Buster Brown. Or like, my wife has a headache, so hello Bayer Aspirin. Or maybe, we need to bathe, so hello Ivory Soap. But after WWII; the advent of mass-market television; and the "consumer revolution", there were so many brands in so many categories that nobody could tell the difference. So what did we do on Madison Avenue? We created new terms and solutions for problems that WE created. For example, everyone had bad breath at times, but WE created and introduced "halitosis" as the real problem, with Listerine as the only solution. Fast-forward and so it is today with our food advertising. Fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, no MSG, no preservatives, no GMOs, and no nothing (including great taste!) Not what the brand is, but what it isn't. A very strange marketing twist these days. Meanwhile, please pass the hollandaise or bearnaise sauce to me with my next juicy and fatty steak. A classic touch for my first heart attack. LOL, Bill (the happiest guy in the graveyard next to you).
