I know a lot of you have already weighed in on this but I wanted to let other readers know that there are still a few days left (until midnight, July 31) to nominate a baby boomer celebrity to appear as a guest interview on this here baby boomer blog.
Thus far, the nominees are (in no particular order):
Kevin Costner (1955); The Beaver (aka Jerry Mathers; 1948); Hillary Clinton (1947); Bobby Orr (1948); David Letterman (1947); Denzel Washington (1954); Sting (1951); Steven Tyler (1948); James Spader (1960); John Travolta (1954); Cher (1946); Sigourney Weaver (1949); Robert Plant (1948); Albert Brooks (1947); Susan Orlean (1955); Robin Williams (1952); Geena Davis (1956); Meryl Streep (1949); Patricia Cornwell (1956); Susan Sarandon (1946); Arlo Guthrie (1947); Edie Brickell (1966); George Clooney (1961); Jay Leno (1950); Ozzy Osbourne (1948); Hugh Laurie (1959); Richard Thomas (1951); Stedman Graham (1951); Kirstie Alley (1951)
Several of the nominees were not baby boomers: Goldie Hawn (1945); Paul Simon (1941); Art Garfunkel (1941); Bette Midler (1945); Ali McGraw (1938).
This weekend a small committee will winnow down the nominees to a handful of names and then YOU will vote for the winner next week. Then I will contact the winner’s manager or agent, and we’ll go from there.
