BARBARA WALTERS & JANE FONDA
A friend sent me an email and asked that I write CBS or NBC, whatever, about an upcoming program about Jane Fonda as one of the 100 Great Women of the 20th Century
In checking on this, as so often is the case on the Internet, I found it to be erronious, as that program happened in 1999, five years ago.
If the list were 10,000 Great Women of the 20th Century, Jane Fonda would not make it to the bottom step!
From there you'd have to trudge through a mile of fetid cow dung to find her.
Baba does not understand the difference between GREAT and Notorious
Hell, even Bette Midler made Baba's list. She had Greta Garbo, Kathryn Hepburn, Rosa Parks and Amelia Erhart on the list, and with Midler added, that's like a cow-plop on a pizza menu.
Once breathed a woman with soul so dead,
While Communist slogans filled her head.
She journeyed to a foreign land,
There stood astride large bags of sand,
And waved aloft that flag of shame,
While her country’s men she did defame.
When such there breathes, we'll mark her well,
For her no minstrel raptures swell,
Hanoi Jane has a peculiar sound,
That name shall follow her around.
