FRINGE SCUTTLEBUTT: Peg O'Keef's mistaken identity


We have been humbled. In our Fringe Exposed cover story this week, we identified this photo as being Peg O'Keef. If you know her, this photo sure as heck looks like her. But she sweetly corrected us:

"The stunning photo of 'O'Keef' in the paper is none other than my scrumptious mother, who departed this mortal coil some 20 years ago. But despair not! I am cleverly hidden in the photo ... deep in her slightly pregnant tummy.

I love seeing her in this paper, in this context. If I have any ability to 'fix the world,' it certainly came from her. Thanks for the sweet reminder."
