Kudos for headline on LAT's Column One

lat-grab-riveter.jpgLoved the headline on this morning's Los Angeles Times story about Elinor Otto, who began working as a wartime Rosie the Riveter in 1942. The kicker is that, at age 93, Otto still works on an aircraft plant production line, at Boeing in Long Beach. Yes, she still makes pounding rivets or however else they do it these days, 70 years later. Good story.

Not new, however. The Long Beach Press-Telegram did a story on Otto as a local legend back in August. She gets to work at 6 a.m.
