"We strain to renew our capacity for wonder, to shock ourselves into astonishment once again." 

       ~ Shana Alexander ~

 

Shana Alexander, the pioneering American journalist who was the first female staff writer at Life magazine, was best known for her combative "Point-Counterpoint" segments with conservative James Kilpatrick on 60 Minutes, which became fodder for a long-running Saturday Night Live spoof. She was born in 1925 in New York City. Her first assignment as a journalist was to interview the stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. She wrote several nonfiction books, mostly true crime accounts. She died in 2005.
