Well, if Gerda died with her boots on, then I'll probably do the same, since
I sleep in them anyway. ;-)

Subject: [Leica] Capa's Real name

    According to Richard Whelan's biography of Robert Capa, his real name
was Endre Erno Friedmann.
    Also, Gera Taro was run over by a tank, while she was covering the
Spanish Civil War. She "died with her boots on" and was considered a hero in
her time.
