Google Celebrates...Frida Kahlo??
If you go to the Google website today, you will see that the firm is celebrating the birthday of Frida Kahlo. Because Google rarely celebrates holidays like Memorial Day or Presidents' Day, I assumed Frida must have been very important to the world, right?
Sure enough, Frida Kahlo was a Mexican bisexual communist artist (covering Google's major requirements for celebration, I suppose). Here is part of the entry from Wiki:
Active communist sympathizers, Kahlo and Rivera befriended Leon Trotsky as he sought political sanctuary from Joseph Stalin's regime in the Soviet Union during the late 1930s. In 1937 initially, Trotsky lived with Rivera and then at Kahlo's home (where he had an affair with Kahlo). Trotsky and his wife then moved to another house in Coyoacán where, later, in 1940 he was assassinated.
