    Oh, no doubt she would have. I've always admired Parker as well, she was probably a role model for lots of us "second wave" '70s feminists. My old friend Anna Ackner (with whom I've sadly lost touch, and I hold out hope she'll someday appear online blogging happily away) practically idolized Parker, and I think she internalized many of Parker's habits as well, both in her (brilliant) writing and her life.
