Fact of the Day: Norma Jeane

During World War II, Marilyn Monroe worked in a factory that made planes for the war effort while she still had her birth name (though married under the name of Dougherty) Norma Jeane Mortenson. It was after meeting a photographer there that her modeling career began which later got her roles in movies that made her even more famous.

I was a big fan of hers...and, again, drugs cut her life waaay too short. The world has lost a lot of awesome people
to drugs...street drugs AND prescription drugs...so heartbreaking
