*** Coming back from Nashville,

I sat on a USAirways flight from Nashville to to Washington Reagan National Airport yesterday. I sat next to a woman who was a business consultant for Xerox. She mentioned to me that she needed to study her popular culture before her business meetings in Dayton during the coming week. She said that she wasn’t really all that familiar with popular culture, and her ignorance was somewhat of a legend within her circle of colleagues. They were going to have a sort of trivia game, and part of the gimmick was to have some fun at her expense. However, one of her coworkers intercepted the pictures that were going to be shown to her, so she would have a chance to study them and figure out something about those pop icons, which would amaze them all since nobody could have imagined that she knew about any of these people. She showed me the piece of paper. There were pictures of Tom Cruise, Jenifer Anniston, Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Portman, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Sean Connery, Marilyn Monroe, and tin man Jack Haley and cowardly lion Bert Lahr.

She said she didn’t know any of them.

“You never saw the Wizard of Oz?” I asked her.

“I don’t watch TV,” she replied.

“It’s a famous movie, one of the very first made in color.”

“I only have a black and white TV,” she said. “My kids are really getting on me to get a color TV but I figure we don’t need one.”

“You don’t know who Marilyn Monroe is?”

“I do know my history. She did something with President Kennedy and he lost the presidency.”
