Nov 9! Nov 9!

Props to Ada, but can we please get some respect for Hedy Lamarr, who managed to not only be a techie wizard (invention of spread-spectrum frequency hopping) but also managed a more-than-respectable side line as a major Hollywood star. And all this after escaping Nazi Germany disguised as a maid.

When I see the talentless oiks who clog up Hollywood today, I reflect that Lamarr would crushed them all.

Born Nov 9, 1914.
