Huh. Bettie Page is dead. She was one of those icons of of another age. Sure she was not exactly appropriate as a role model by todays standards but her pinups were part of the way america's perceptions of sex were at a certain time. Also, for what ever reason she always held a place in the geek collective mindset. Honestly I did not know she was still alive till I saw the notice of her passing. May she rest in peace.

Ditto.
I didn't even realize we were contemporaries. I just always assumed she had been long dead.

From a roller girl who's first derby team was inspired by the great Page herself...
