DO *YOU* KNOW WHO NELLIE BLY IS?

May 5, 2015

I guess I didn’t until this morning’s Google Doodle.  I thought she had something to do with cow that kicked over the lantern in the barn causing the big Chicago fire.  Wrong.  Nellie Bly, pen name, was really Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman, an American journalist known for her investigative and undercover writing.  And for speaking out for those who were told to ‘shut-up’, i.e., women.

Where might we be today without her skill and courage?

Quite interesting.  I love finding out something new everyday.  And this was my ‘new’ for today.  Thanks Google!
