zing went the strings of my heart

Artemis. Who I forgot to mention.

One of my favorite not-written-by-me Tablet column headlines was I Am Charlotte’s Tsimmes. Which got literary and nutball points, but didn’t actually tell you much about the story you were about to read. (It was a social history of American Jewish women as told through Hadassah regional cookbooks.) The headline for this week’s column, It’s Fun for a Girl and a Bow, is amusing AND tells you something about the story you’re about to read: a mash-up of archery, feminism, pop cult and Lag B’Omer! Go, Wayne.

Glad to see you mentioned Artemis here! And there is another related item in contemporary entertainment, there is actually a character called Artemis on Young Justice (about young superheroes from the DC Comics universe) http://youngjustice.wikia.com/wiki/Artemis – of course, she uses a bow and arrows too. 🙂
