Quote of the Day (Fannie Flagg, on the Perils of Perkiness)

“There's nothing more unattractive than a sixty-year-old ex-cheerleader still trying to be perky.” —Fannie Flagg, The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion: A Novel (2013)

(This photograph of author-actress Fannie Flagg—best known for the novel Fried Green  Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Cafe--was taken in 1972 for the CBS Network, where was appearing as a regular on The New Dick Van Dyke Show.)
