Today in history, Benito Mussolini and his mistress, Clara, were executed and strung up in a Milanese piazza. I am always reminded of the story told to me by a fellow high school and NYU classmate about his grandmother who was there when it happened.
Her strongest impression? As it turns out, she got close enough to the bodies to see that despite the rough treatment by the crowd, there was not a single run or tear in Clara's stockings.
C'mon, only a woman in a rush to get ready for work on a Monday morning can appreciate that . . .
