Peace, Smurfs and other thoughts on turning 50

Something else turning 50 this year? The peace symbol, first used, according to an On the Media segment, on Feb. 21, 1958 at a British anti-nuclear march.

NPR asks, “So are (Smurfs) having a mid-life crisis? Au contraire! They are planning a comeback. The original series soon will be out on DVD and a 3-D movie is expected next year.” Wonder if AARP will sign up Papa Smurf?…
