The Day Jane Fonda Came to Appalachian State University
The gym was packed for her speech. But, unlike the barbarians who now attend colleges, ASU students let her talk.
I had been seated about halfway back, so what happened next was truly startling. Miss Fonda invited the veterans in the audience to meet with her in a side room. When I came in she was sitting on a table surrounded by veterans.
Sliding off the table she headed straight for me. She took my hand in her two hands and said. "Thank you. I did not know how I was going to be received here in the South, so I was somewhat apprehensive. Then I spotted your kind face in the audience and locked on to it. From then on I was fine."
