wild and wonderful

Dad was an accountant, but I’m sure he harbored secret dreams of being a backwoods fishing guide. His uncommon facility with numbers doomed him to a successful career in an office. Still, he lived out a version of his fantasy for two weeks every August. We’d pack our yellow Dodge Monaco with camping gear and escape north, away from the Toronto suburbs and into the central Ontario hinterland, where we fished in the morning, played cards in the afternoon and read by a Coleman lantern at night. But in 1969, the summer before I turned 7, we didn’t go north. Instead we headed southwest to Arizona and the Grand Canyon. Not a fishing hole in sight, though waves of heat radiating from that poor Dodge, overworked and without air conditioning, made…

in sickness and in soap

ABC’s General Hospital premiered May 1, 1963, which makes it the longest running daytime drama on the air. Do you have a healthy general knowledge of this fan favorite? 1 Name the fictional city where General Hospital is based. 2 Stuart Damon portrayed this patriarch for more than 30 years. 3 An estimated 30 million viewers tuned in for this much anticipated event in 1981 (pictured above). 4 Name the violet-eyed superstar—and show super fan—who guest-starred as Helena Cassadine. 5 Who is the “Jessie’s Girl” rocker who rocked stints as Dr. Noah Drake (and Eli Love) from 1981 to 2013? 6 He won eight lead-actor Daytime Emmys playing Luke Spencer, the most of any soap-opera performer. 7 A flight attendant and a registered nurse, she showed up in 1964 to visit her sister—and never left. How’d you do?…

the answer is still out there

On April 16, 1962, at Gerde’s Folk City in New York’s Greenwich Village, young Bob Dylan announced from the stage, “This here ain’t no protest song or anything like that, ’cause I don’t write no protest songs.” He then proceeded to sing “Blowin’ in the Wind.” Contrary to Dylan’s pronouncement, his was the ultimate protest song, posing a series of fierce rhetorical questions about peace, war, social responsibility and racial prejudice, with an ongoing refrain abstractly promising that “the answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.” Peter, Paul and Mary’s hit 1963 version of the song became Warner Brothers Records’ fastest-selling single ever. “I wrote ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ in 10 minutes, just put words to an old spiritual, probably something I learned from Carter Family records,” Dylan said of his legendary…
