I'm all for the photo spreads. My own, sadly, was never accepted for publication. I'd rather have a nice body and good pics of it and no wins than no body, no pics, and no wins. (I speak from experience here.)

Nice Grand Rapids article, BTW!

Cutie Pie Pictorials of tournament winners only? I can kill that idea in just four words: Singh in a thong.

Women are held to a different standard than men in this regard. For example, does anybody complain when young NBA players like LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony accept endorsement offers that cash in on their manliness or popularity? These guys sometimes don't even make the 16-team playoffs, much less make a title run. Yet Gulbis gets shot down when she keeps improving as a golfer year after year and has been excrutiatingly close to beating all of the best players in the world. Doesn't seem right to me.

In Kournikova's case, it seems as if she got worse shortly after all of the press attention started - an opportunity lost. While she was very talented, it seemed as if she could've had a much better tennis career.

Thanks for the shout out, Shanks.

Still, let's look a little closer at your first sentence.

"....in THIS regard"?

In EVERY regard.

If a woman created the mess in Iraq, would she be an incompetent doofus? Or proof that women are unsuited for the Presidency?

If a woman ran the Detroit Lions, would they stink because she was lousy at her job? Or would she be proof women don't belong in the Front Office?

For that matter, why am I polishing my toenails while I'm writing this email?
