I heard about her heart attack a few days ago and hoped she would pull through. Sad I'm really sad to hear about her passing; she was one of my idols.

Godsspeed, Bettie. You will be missed.

Innocence and Immanence

"i am not an angry girl, but it seems like i've got everyone fooled -- every time i say something they find hard to hear they chalk it up to my anger and never to their own fear. and imagine you're a girl, just trying to finally come clean, knowing full well they'd prefer you were dirty and smiling."

I love pin-up art, and she was my favorite. You're right, she'll be missed.

Definitely. I think most modern pinup artists have Betty Page in mind whenever they draw.

If not her then one of the "Vargas girls." But I agree, she will remain the quintessential pin-up girl for many, many people.

Love her or hate her, her influence can't be denied.  Rest well, Bettie.

We who live alternative lifestyles were greatly influenced by Miss Page. I know that I certainly was.

!!! Sad I'm sorry to hear this. She was truly one in a million.
