Steinem Comes to Whidbey Island


Thanks to AnalogKid at Random Nuclear Strikes, I am now aware that a really famous person is spending the Summer on Whidbey Island!

Gloria Steinem will be a writer in residence at the Hedgebrook Farm writer's retreat place on Useless Bay (really!) on the South end of Whidbey Island. At the peak of her career she was a Playboy Bunny, but her career has slipped a bit since those times.

According to the article in the Seattle Times, she had agreed to write a book several years ago, but just never got around to it. Now she can.......

I can see how you'd be proud to have Mrs. Steinem on your little island...

a Rabid femi-natzi, and active member of the Democratic Socialists of America...

I don't believe I'd be interested in reading anything that Mrs. Steinem has to say.

Somehow I suspect that her career is not all that has slipped over the years.

Does that mean she has retired from her job as a professional harpy?
