    PIRATES!by Rick Dandes

    They ruled the seven seas back in the 1600s and 1700s and even today are plundering sea vessels in international waters. They are pirates. From movies and books to real life, pirates fascinate people endlessly and probably always will. Tid-bits walks the plank this week, in honor of Na-tional Talk Like a Pirate Day observed on Sep-tember 19. Although Hollywood pirates, such as Jack

    Sparrows friends, like to grumble arrr or arrrrgh frequently, real pirates were not known to do so. Hollywood actor Robert Newton, who played Long John Silver in the 1950s, had a regional accent from the Cotswolds district of England where they like to roll the r a bit. However, your average real pirate did not.

    Pirates may have thrown men overboard, but no one was ever known to have walked the plank. Again, this one is a Hollywood myth.

    Lady Ching Shih of China became one of the most powerful pirates to have ever sailed the ocean blue. She commanded one of the most formidable pirate fleets in all of Asia during the early 1800s, with hundreds of ships under her command.

    Q. Why do pirates always carry a bar of soap?

    A. So if theyre shipwrecked, they can wash themselves to shore.

    Politicians, entrepreneurs, athletes, performers and philanthropists Women have made their mark in every walk of life. This week, Tidbits takes a closer look at some of the more notable ones.

    Before she was Coco, she was Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, born in France in 1883. She opened a millinery shop in Paris in 1912 after a four-year career as a caf singer. In 1922, she introduced a perfume, simply named Chanel No. 5, named such because a fortune teller had told her five was her lucky number. In 1926, she introduced the little black dress and was known for saying, Fashion fades; only style remains the same.

    Although women were not given the right to vote until the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in 1920, women in the state of Montana had that right before ratification. In fact, Montana had already elected the U.S. Congress first woman, Jeannette Rankin, in 1916. She is remembered as the only vote against entering World War II following the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. She had also voted against the U.S. entry into World War I. She continued her anti-war stance for years to come, and in 1968, she led a demonstration march in Washington, D.C., protesting U.S. military action in Vietnam.

    NOTABLE WOMEN (continued):

    Twin sisters with unusually similar names born in 1918 went on to exactly the same profession. Esther Pauline Friedman and Pauline Esther Friedman both became advice columnists within months of each other. Esther Pauline was known for 56 years as Ann Landers, dispensing frank, sometimes controversial advice to millions of readers. Pauline Esther wrote under the byline Dear Abby for 39 years until she was diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease. Although the sisters had a joint wedding ceremony on their 21st birthday, in later years, their competition created a rift in their relationship, and they didnt have contact for many years.

    Journalist Elizabeth Jane Cochran took on the pen name of Nellie Bly to write for a Pittsburgh newspaper back in 1885 and concentrated her early efforts on the working conditions of female factory workers. When her editor reassigned her to the society and gardening sections, she rebelled and traveled to Mexico as a foreign correspondent. At age 23, she went undercover at a womens insane asylum, faking insanity to probe reports of brutality at the New York facility. After enduring filth, starvation and abuse for ten days, she penned an expos that created such a racket that an additional $850,000 was dispatched to the asylum in short order. At age 25, Bly undertook a trip around the world reproducing the fictional journey of Phileas Fogg in Jules Vernes Around the World in 80 Days. She finished her 24,899-mile trip in just over 72 days, actually meeting Jules Verne during a stop in France. After an early retirement from journalism, she invented and patented a steel barrel, whose design is still in use in todays 55-gallon oil drums.

    A natural brunette, comedienne Lucille Ball started her career as a blonde model named Dianne Belmont in 1933 and landed a movie role shortly afterward in that years Roman Scandals. She adopted her trademark red hair in 1942 at the advice of MGM Studios. She and husband Desi Arnaz hit the small screen in 1951 when I Love Lucy made its television debut. When she became pregnant in 1952, it was written into the sitcoms plot, and the

    episode depicting Little Rickys birth aired on exactly the same day that Lucy delivered son Desi Jr. Lucy and her son were featured on the cover of TV Guides very first issue, in 1953. She and Desi Sr. divorced after 20 years. Lucille Ball was the first woman to own her own film studio, and over the course of her long career, appeared in 72 movies and received 13 Emmy nominations, with four Emmy Award wins.

    How many women drove pink Cadillacs because of Mary Kay Ash? At age 45, this cosmetics entrepreneur had worked many years for Stanley Home Products but finally resigned after being passed over for promotions in favor of men she had herself trained. It

    was her plan to write a book that would aid women in business, but the book ended up being a business plan for a new company, and in 1963, she and her husband began Mary Kay Cosmetics with a $5,000 investment. She wrote three best-selling books, and her business philosophy, Mary Kay on People Management, became part of the business course curriculum at Harvard Business School. Although Ash passed away in 2001, today there a
