88 years in the closet

Loraine Barr breaks 88 years of silence:


Thanks to the magic of the web, Norman Lear learned about Ms. Barr's story, and posted a comment on someone's blog referencing an episode of "All In The Family" with a similar narrative arc. He asked for help locating Barr to send her a copy of the episode. Barr found Lear's post, and passed along her email address.

Looks as if there's going to be a documentary about her story, as well.
