Farrah Fawcett, RIP

Another icon of my youth has passed on. I did not have her poster, but had many friends who did.

Addendum: The NYT weighs in on Farrah.


In 1978 Playboy magazine called Ms. Fawcett “the first mass visual symbol of post-neurotic fresh-air sexuality.” She herself put it more plainly: “When the show [Charlie's Angels] got to be No. 3, I figured it was our acting. When it got to be No. 1, I decided it could only be because none of us wears a bra.”
