R.I.P Betty Page, 1923-2008

The pop culture icon and queen of pin-ups passed away at age 85.

Check the bio at New York Times, revealing a life of child abuse, mental illness and her final years as a Born Again Christian.

Fun fact: Despite her status as "the grandmother of Fetish" posing in photographs created by Irving and Paula Klaw, wearing leather, corsets, and nine inch heels in spooky apartments where the curtains are always drawn... she herself believed that the naked human body should be seen as a natural and positive thing.

Panzer Sdkfz 10/4
Early mobile anti aircraft ability for the German Wehrmacht. Note that the crew are wearing Luftwaffe uniforms since anti-aircraft duties were the reponsibility of the German airforce.

Damn! The ultimate symbol of the coming of a new age passes away with the new age that turned out to be inadequate (spelling please)...remaining her symbloism stronger than ever! She was a knock out. RIP Betty
