Hugh Hefner passed away today. He was 91.
Playboy was an institution, and so was Mr. Hefner. But it began dying when they took the staples out. It suffered catastrophic damage when Christie Hefner stepped down as CEO. Now, it’s just another lads mag, nothing like its robust creator had in mind when he was at the helm.
With Mr. Hefner dies the last embers of the Sexual Revolution. Unfortunately, the Prudes won.
