Julia Child was a spy

During WWII, Julia Child (along with other ass-kicking women like Josephine Baker) were spies for the OSS. NARA, the gatekeepers of civilization, recently declassified documents that confirmed (what some of us knew all along): Julia Child was among the OSS’s spies.

Ms. Child is one of my personal heroes for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which was her ability to utter, with a straight face, the phrase, “I like to truss my chickens, otherwise they have a rather wanton look.”
