This article makes some really good points about how Cosby ruined his legacy, not only of his brilliance, but also of the hard work of Robert Culp, Sheldon Leonard and others, and how much the show impacted society at such a crucial time. I’ve been sickened for a long time, now I’m infuriated.

I’ve finally rediscovered our show and love it and watch it with such happiness. There are some cringe-worthy moments that didn’t have significance before: such as joking about drugging tea in “Get Thee to a Nunnery.” I haven’t figured out what to do with those yet.

I don’t know if I can explain this other idea clearly. I’ve been wondering if Cosby, with all horrible actions, has somehow indirectly set a new positive legacy: of women being heard and believed, and of perpetrators being prosecuted and found guilty when they are, even when they’re rich, powerful, and previously beloved. Just an idea.

Love,
Maya

Ahhh ... Maya! I so agree with your other idea. In the “How far down are we - the only place left to go is up” scenario - with Cosby and Weinstein and all those others, maybe we hopefully have entered a new era where women and victims are finally heard and believed!!

All my best,
