    Yeah, the woman, Edith Shain, actually went out to the sailor, who was kissing every woman in sight. So, she obviously didn't mind being kissed.

    For crying out loud, the lady involved was fine with it so what business is it of yours?

    I really wish this photo would stop circulating. The sailor assaulted this poor woman. Absolutely nothing romantic about it.
