    Very cool. I loved her song, “At 17.” Made a big impression on me as I was an “ugly” girl until I was 17, then blossomed. Glad to hear she’s still creating.

    Geez, no one here is old enough to remember that Janis Ian wrote a really cool, really funny regular column for that out gay national publication, The Advocate? I’m not sure how long she wrote it (or how many years ago), but I know I dropped my subscription when she disappeared from their pages. If you go to the Advocate’s web site and do a search on Janis Ian, you’ll pull up more than a few articles. The woman is not, and has not been, closeted for many, many years. Please, don’t trash the political credentials of someone who was putting it out there _long_ before it was fashionable.
