At 67, Jane Fonda appears younger. Her hair is multi-tinted, short and perky. She stares at the camera with an almost smile. Her eyes are now highlighted with the crows feet of maturity and makeup. She has a new book and new movie she's promoting everywhere you look. First, I saw her on public television with Charlie Rose and then again on CBS-tv's 60 Minutes.

Who is Jane Fonda, anyway? A self-proclaimed chameleon, she says her last marriage to billionaire entrepreneur, Ted Turner, ended in divorce because she became a Christian. Yet, I didn't hear her talk of any relationship with a Higher Power.

Thirty plus years ago, Jane Fonda made her much celebrated visit to Hanoi during the Viet Nam war. She made quite a show at that time of climbing aboard an North Vietnamese anti-aircraft carrier. These days, Ms. Fonda says she regrets her doing that, however, she still proclaims her anti-war activist role.

Many of us were activists in those terrible undeclared-by-Congress war days. I protested, too. Somehow, it always seemed a losing battle. Many of my generation went off to "war"--never to return to their country and loved ones again. We had admirable spokespeople like Dr. Martin L. King and just ordinary people knew the war was wrong.

Jane Fonda mounted that anti-aircraft carrier with full recognition of what she was doing. In the film footage of that day, she was smiling.

In nature, a chameleon is any of various type of lizards who have the ability to change color which is a survival tool. Who is Jane Fonda, really?
