Like many of you - Dorothy Kilgallen is my favorite on WML, however I want to always keep an open mind when learning more about her or any other person I admire. You can't always believe what is written about a person, however I will trust Dorothy's own words. I've learned that when legendary singer - Patsy Cline played atCarnegie Hallwith other country legends in the early 60's - Dorothy called them hicks and advised most New Yorkers to leave town to avoid the event. But before I make a judgment on this, I would like to see Dorothy's entire column on the subject. Does anyone have a link to the whole story or can you post her entire comments. What little I'm finding on the Internet is disturbing from quotes by Dorothy from "hicks in the sticks" to "Carnegie Hall use to have music." Again - I'm as big of a Kilgallen fan that you'll find and as her final show approaches on GSN, there is great sadness. But I would like to know the whole story and not just be blinded by the magic of nostalgia. I've been viewing the show with my son for several years. He has never been as enthusiastic about the show as I have, a typical response for a 19 year old living in 2007 and I don't fault him for it. He even kids me from time to time by asking what I see in the show. After watching an episode he sometimes comments that Dorothy appears to be a snob and thinks she is better than some people. I have always defendedDorothy as being just the opposite. Then I stumbled across the "hicks from the sticks" article. Yes, it is only one column, but much is revealed in one's own words. Tell me it ain't so Dorothy!
