"At the FDR Library, one exhibit holds the contents of Eleanor Roosevelt’s wallet. While many of the cards and slips of paper from the wallet are fascinating (a Met membership card, a scrap of a poem about the importance of good cooks), this pistol permit is perhaps the most surprising."

Blackwell’s Island Insane Asylum - New York 1887 Nellie Bly was a 23-year-old journalist without a job when she walked into the offices of Joseph Pulitzer’s and was given the daunting assignment of exposing the horrors of the Blackwell’s Asylum. She rehearsed feverishly. She played mad. “Undoubtedly demented… a hopeless case,” said one of the doctors who admitted her. But inside the asylum she chronicled the awful food and conditions that spurred reform.

Dorothy Parker on writing “It’s easier to write about those you hate — just as it’s easier to criticize a bad play or a bad book.” “If you’re going to write, don’t pretend to write down. It’s going to be the best you can do, and it’s the fact that it’s the best you can do that kills you.” “I hate writing, I love having written.”

Actress Janet Leigh and Director Alfred Hitchcock on the set of his chilling 1960 masterpiece, “Psycho”. The much-talked-about Janet Leigh bra scenes had a definite method to their mammory madness. In the film, prior to swiping 40K for her lover, the bra is white– symbolzing innocence. After the dirty deed, the bra is black– symboling her crossing over to the dark side. Same with her purse…
