Don't Age, but Do Grow Up
on September 30, 2007
There were lots of amusing bon mots in this work by the creator of the cartoon Sylvia, but I was disappointed. I would have expected a little more personal growth. After all, I expect of myself, entering retirement. Not in this book.
Apparently decades of overwhelming evidence-- in sexual predation on children, rising rape assaults, the end of the woman-friendly institution of life-long marriage, the negative effect of the ephemistically termed 'blended families' on children--have gone over Sylvia's head, because she's still full of that stinky, flippant, thoughtless, selfish notion that, "Sex is for fun and I'm allowed any kind I want, anytime I want. Nyah Nyah Nyah!"
But no. Neither Sylvia nor Hollander seem to have learned from the last forty years. She should just grow up.
