"The White Mouse," WWII heroine and spy, dies at 98 http://reut.rs/qecG0V
What a greatest generation! Even their household pests were American heroes. Where are our cockroach neurosurgeons and stinkbug fighter jocks? (Answer: learning how tough it is to be a vampire in high school. That's what everyone's doing.)
