This young lady was born in Ukraine one year before my maternal grandmother (who was born in the 19th century). She moved to America, but became famous neither in America nor Ukraine. She was Jewish. She was loved. She was feared.
Update: Golda Meir was the 4th Prime Minister of Israel, and was considered "the best man in government" by David Ben-Gurion. Yeah, Jews are funny. My good friend, Pat, who used to blog but now has a life, got this one. And, as a good Jew (not by birth or choice, rather, he was married to one) all he said in his email to me was, "Golda."
