You'd have to be made of wood not to get a case of the warm fuzzies with this one: Edith Shain, the nurse who made photographic history when Life magazine shutterbug Alfred Eisenstaedt snapped a picture of her seconds after a sailor grabbed and kissed her on August 15, 1945 - a.k.a. the day Japan surrendered, ending WWII, a.k.a. the last time people danced in the streets before last Tuesday - is back in town. The 90-year-old is in the Veteran's Day Parade as we speak. And nope, she still doesn't know who the mystery sailor was.
