What Makes a Man?

Man boobs and the real man Back in the 1950s we were short on epithets and about the worst thing you could be called was a sissy. “Queer” was used sometimes, but it had none of the sexual connotations it carries today. In rural Nebraska, we didn’t know much about homosexuality.

Gay & Gray

Breaking the stereotypes At an age when many believe that life is winding down, it’s just getting interesting. Occasionally someone will say to me, “You look good… for 73.” I’ve also heard variations such as, “I’d never guess you were that old.” When I first heard these comments from people, I felt good, as if I’d pulled one over on them. Sometimes I would respond, “I don’t feel like I’m 73.”
