Betty James, RIP
Betty James, wife of the Slinky inventor and president of the Slinky company for four decades, died last week. I didn't get a chance to meet her (although I do have a slinky with her autograph, given to me by her son), but I remain grateful for all she did to build up the Slinky empire and spread joy through the world. The Altoona paper's obituary. The NY Times obituary.
