Just another day at the Daily Planet
When my friend Mary Beth Quirk aka Gingervision became a magazine writer she probably thought her life would resemble this picture of her mom. You know: lots of tapping typewriters, cigar smoke, mod frocks, flashing lightbulbs and guys named Smitty with the scoop, see?
Mrs. Quirk, the adorable 22 year-old Lois Lane knock-off you see before you, lived the dream. The year was 1968, and this was her first job at the Dayton Journal-Herald. East your heart out, Superman.
