RIP: "Gorgeous" Gussie

"Tennis star Gertrude "Gussie" Moran was "a lot more" than pair of knickers and a pretty face--she loved Santa Monica, said City Councilman Kevin McKeown." And to repay that love, Santa Monica is looking into putting a memorial to the recently deceased tennis star (famous for wearing a short skirt at Wimbledon in 1949) in a city park. Fear not, budget watchers: "'There are already people willing to donate the money,' the councilman said." [SM Patch]
