Think they'll ever do an Average Jane? Can't you see an attractive man presented with 16 'average' women? Beautiful women date unattractive men all the time (see Brinkley, Christine/Joel, Billy for example). The same isn't as cliche with beautiful men, is it?

I met a young man after services on Friday night last week. He had just finished Marine boot camp I believe and was there with his family. Dressed in his uniform he called me 'Sir.'
I'm not sure I'm worthy. All I could say to him was 'Thank you.' And 'Congratulations.' But it wasn't enough. It can never be enough for what our soldiers do for us. For my children. For the future.
'Sir' is a sign of respect, in this case for an 'elder.' Well, to that Marine, and to all the wonderful men and women who so proudly, so elegantly, and so well defend this land of ours I say 'Thank you. Sir!'
Update: While America honors our soldiers, Michael Moore honors, you can't make this stuff up, Rachel Corrie: "...Rachel stands as a symbol to many of nonviolent resistance to injustice..." I believe the verb he was looking for wasn't 'stand' but 'lays.' Perhaps 'flattens'?
Somewhere, somewhere in heaven above, George Burns is puffing on that cigar, looking kindly at Gracie, and laughing his ass off with John Denver.
"Egyptian authorities have banned the Jim Carrey film "Bruce Almighty," saying the comedy infringes on God's sacredness.
Madkour Thabit, who heads the state-run censorship body responsible for audio and visual productions, criticized the movie Friday for featuring "actors playing the role of God."
"The name of the movie — 'Bruce Almighty' — indicates that there is someone who can do anything and everything," Thabit said in a statement faxed to The Associated Press. "Such traits belong only to God."
In the film, Carrey plays a TV reporter who gets a shot at being God for a week.
In June, Egyptian censors banned "The Matrix Reloaded" on religious grounds, saying it challenged the topics of existence and creation."

Courtesy of my wife, who actually herded the boys through the process, we have the official holiday picture. That mystical rite of parenthood accompanied, of course, by the Official Holiday Card (which comes premagnetized to your fridge).
Herschel Grynszpan was seventeen years old in 1938. On November 7th, after learning that his family had been forced out of their home in Hanover, Germany, Herschel decided to assassinate the German Ambassador to France. Upon discovering that the Ambassador was not in the embassy, he settled for a lesser official, Third Secretary Ernst vom Rath. Rath was critically wounded and died two days later, on November 9.
Some of these celebrations today will take place in such foreign lands as:
If the Islamists win, this will be the reason. Because liberals, champions of 'Gay Rights,' support the regimes which kill homosexuals. Because liberals, champion of 'Women's Rights,' support the regimes which subjugate women.
This is not a day for celebration. It is not a day to mock the whining hordes in America who find a moral equivalency slithering under every rock they overturn looking for something to protest. It is a day for living. Where every breath I take, every laugh my sons make, every kiss from my wife is a repudiation of what this date has meant in history.
Where every heartbeat screams out that the Nazis lost. That anti-semitism lost. That genocide lost.
