In my Monday Boomer U story, I examined the myths we boomers grew up in the 1960s, including the one where the black widow spider nested in a teen's beehive and when the spider eggs hatched, they bit the teen's scalp, killing her. Great illustration by Spokesman artist Molly Quinn. Thanks Molly! Anyone know the urban legends adolescents are growing up with today?
