Hard Up For Headlines?

Waiting in line at the local Shoppers Drug Mart today I scanned the covers of the various publications located near the cash register. One of the was The Globe tabloid. One of the cover stories made me wonder. It was about a supposed plot to kill Doris Day. Perhaps the demographics of the typical tabloid buyer are older than I thought, because I have trouble seeing the same folks who want to know the supposed latest about Brad and Angelina being interested in Ms. Day. She's largely been out of the public eye by her own choice since the early 1970s. Some of the younger audience for the gossip rags probably don't even have a clue as to who she is and what made her famous. So it seems kind of odd they'd have her prominently featured on the cover. Perhaps they needed a break from "Brangelina," and Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan have managed to go a few weeks without making total specticles of themselves.

It seems that Doris Day's face on the front page of a paper, tabloid or not, still sells. The GLobe has put her face prominently on the cover 3 times in less than 6 months...The lady still has it even though she has been out of the limelight for 30+ years. They just don't make Great people like Doris Day anymore...she and her era of celebs run rings around the so-called 'stars' of today. What do the young people have to look up to??? It is no wonder that the younger crowd is now discovering Doris Day and seeing what a wonderful, positive influence she is/was. God bless you, dear still have it and thank God you do!!!!
