I can't say I am a magnet for these kind of shows. I typically keep moving as I pass the Peter Paul and Mary fundraising special on PBS -- I feel as if I've seen it all 100 times before.
What I noticed when the audience was being interviewed is that they interviewed ten males for every female. These were contemporary interviews, meaning done at the time of the event, and I reluctantly guessed that female opinions didn't mean as much. They were mostly teens and college students and as I looked at their boyish faces, I tried to age them in my mind and imagine them as the 60+ year old men they are today. How weird it would be to be one of them and see yourself back then.
