    74th? Given her genes and pedigree, I'd say that is way low -- she's gotta be at least in the top 25!

    And for the record, Mrs. Zagoshe was in a doctor's office a few weeks ago and read this article - well at least the first few paragraphs -- and then called me up all pissed off and wanting to write a letter to the editor of the magazine because of the "C-cup" lede to the article. She said it was demeaning and she refused to read the rest of the article about it.

    Of course, I tried to explain to her that she needed to lighten up in the same manner I did to others who objected on this very thread........OK, maybe not, but I did tell her I think she was over reacting and she basically told me to STFU.

    Anyway, I had to laugh about it.
