Seven Stranded Castaways

I noticed a quiz on Facebook the other day that determines which character from Gilligan's Island you are most like. I loved that show. Lots of fun, in kind of a corny, pitiful way. Some more sophisticated types said that this show was a metaphor for the tragedy of the human condition. I guess I missed that altogether.

I did read a great piece in Newsweek after Bob Denver's death. It's quite a tribute to all the Gilligans of the world, along with two more childhood heroes. See what you think. You can find it here: Gilligan, Scotty, and Fife.
