After over 70 years in business, lady journalist Brenda Starr is being retired. One early-round pitch had Brenda as a female pirate, but instead she became "the definition of a career-woman even before that term came into vogue."
When I was a wee lass I wanted to be Brenda Starr. She had 2 things I desperately wanted: she was a writer, and she had red hair. Well, eventually I got red hair, and I've been a writer for the last 15 years. Maybe someday I'll even be able to make a living at it. I'm no Brenda Starr - but then, there was only one. Bon voyage, Ms. Starr.
