I feel the same way. This is no country for old men. Apparently, women neither.

Marcie Judelson

So true. And she got scant attention on the Oscars show. That was sad to see. I hoped for some type of tribute.

Marcie, you are a voice in the wilderness. I don't have much stomach for commercial TV these days, even as an exercise in sociological observation, but as chance would have it I was captive audience to the E! Channel the day Shirley Temple died, while waiting to see my urologist (whatever happened to Muzak?). Shirley's name did not come up, but I did catch some breathless reporting on the subject of a recent tweet by one of the Kardashians, along with breaking news on photoshopped bikini shots.

It's good to know I'm not alone in the wilderness!

Also: a mere quarter page tribute in People Magazine. And barely more than that in Time and Newsweek.

I expected entire souvenier tribute issues of LIFE or People.

Really, all I should expect these days is to be disappointed.
