Hugh Hefner, RIP

Beverly Hills, Calif. — Hugh Hefner, who created Playboy magazine and spun it into a media and entertainment-industry giant — all the while, as its very public avatar, squiring attractive young women (and sometimes marrying them) well into his 80s — died at his home here Sept. 27. He was 91.

Joel included a discussion of him in his monologue on the 1960s in episode 202- CATALINA CAPER.

The New York Times has the story.

    Wow, Hefner is an example of a life well-lived. Safe journey to that big grotto in the sky, my friend.

    He’s hot-tubbing with the angels now.

    Just how Hef would have wanted it. A fitting tribute. RIP sir.

    It would be easier to praise Hefner, if he hadn’t devoted the last thirty years to numerous hagiographies and televised tributes to himself. Jonas Salk should’ve been half as praised.

    Was he an improver of American society? Bearing in mind that he was partly responsible for this age of being able to become wealthy by having “a big -ss and a sex tape” you will have to decide. Personally, I did not see him as the promoter of women’s rights he made himself out to be, but I am always gratified to see someone achieve a long, happy life. RIP

    Ironically, this story is now at the bottom of the page, and just below and to the right it says “Older Entries >>”. Just… awesome.
