Peggy Elliott: Why I Don't Like Men With Facial Hair
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Marlo Thomas became the first young, single woman in television in 1966. At the same time, I became one of the first young single women writing for television and "That Girl." My debut was not the news that Marlo's was, but someone at her network, ABC, took notice, since I was asked to appear with Marlo on a new series called "The Dating Game." Years later, it was revived in a much sexier version, but there was no sex on television in 1966. Recently, I talked to Saul Turteltaub, who co-produced "That Girl" in its later years, and he couldn't remember Anne Marie and her boyfriend, Don Hollinger, even exchanging a goodnight kiss in five years. Marlo and her "date" were given a fabulous night on the town, but the guy I selected and I were told we could ride on a float at the Burro Festival in Bakersfield.

Paul Simon Plays Intimate Show At Turkana Basin Institute Fundraiser
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Dr. Richard Leakey is the first to admit that his friendship with Paul Simon is unlikely. "I really don't like music and he really doesn't like old bones," Leakey told the audience at last night's intimate fundraiser for the Turkana Basin Institute (T.B.I.), a non-profit organization dedicated to assembling a full fossil record of humanity's origins in Sub-Saharan Africa. Still, the venerable paleontologist and conservationist -- who was introduced last night as "the man many believe responsible for saving the elephant population" of Kenya -- and the legendary folk-rock musician hit it off when the latter paid a visit to T.B.I. about four years ago. Simon's experience there inspired him to propose a benefit concert, which took place last night at the Highline Stages in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. Real-estate developer Leonard Stern, philanthropist David Rockefeller Jr. and IMAX C.E.O. Richard Gelfond were among the 200 deep-pocketed guests on hand when Simon and ve ...
