It's not been a good week for us Baby Boomers. First we lost Robin Williams.
Now, we find out that Lauren Bacall has also left us. Sure, she was 89 and had a great life. So, it's us that we are grieving for. The world is less without her force of personality, husky voice, and the ability to get the best out of others, including her late partner Humphrey Bogart.
For those who believe in reincarnation, we can hope that this outsized talent returns as a ghostwriter who earns a wonderful living and has no demons.
