business news in context, analysis with attitude

In case you missed it, Katherine Hepburn died yesterday at age 96.

Hepburn's death, coming on the same weekend that Hollywood releases its current vision of American womanhood - "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle," one of the most profoundly stupid movies ever made - illustrates how times have changed.

And not for the better.
