Happy Birthday Rose

While it's not necessarily pleasant to consider a ninety year old stripper, we have to take a moment to honor the woman who put "art" in the bump and grind.  Gypsy Rose Lee, born Rose Louise Hovick, is credited with taking the art of the strip-tease out of the vaudeville between act and make it headline-worthy

Rose was also an accomplished mystery novel author and playwright, and her biography was turned into the Broadway show Gypsy!  (Man, this is starting to sound like a ninth-grade essay.)

Favorite quote attributed to Rose during the famous police raid on Minsky's: I wasn't naked. I was completely covered by a blue spotlight.

 Come to think of it, we've used that one ourselves...
