Fun gals always trump good gals. When Princess Diana died the media attention she received way overshadowed the gravitas respect global reporters paid to Mother Teresa. Anyway, Christopher Hitchens had done a nice job, at least in some circles, tarnishing the MT brand.
So, it's no surprise that Helen Gurley Brown's death at age 90 is receiving so much attention. She empowered women to operate their lives and their loves strategically. Cut out the good girl stuff, she told us, because it won't get you far.
No feminist had her mainstream reach. Therefore no feminist has earned or will receive the kind of send-off Brown is having. We strategic-minded females can envision Brown in heaven sizing up if she should pursue God the Father or God the Son. Given her inventiveness, she will probably run a contest asking gals, dead and alive, who would be the better catch.
