In response to the letter about the women's expo: I am surprised and entertained at her comments. We wanted the show to be fun, not just stoic models doing the monotonous bridal walk down the runway. These girls were not selling sex. What an idiotic thing to say. They were modeling gowns and keeping people's interest. What a wonderful thing it is that if you don't like something you're seeing you can leave.
It's sad that someone labeled our group of intelligent, beautiful, talented, and innocent teenage models "sexually provocative" when they were doing a wonderful job of showing how much fun and joy goes into an actual wedding or a prom. I, as a woman, feel that women such as the one who wrote that letter need to stop acting like a stick in the mud. I'll bet it's fun at her house.
And by the way, our "gender" cannot take a giant leap backwards as time travel has not yet been invented.
Check with wife
On March 26, John Kerry said when he's president he will penalize companies that export jobs overseas. What a patriot!
That means he'll penalize his wife's company -- Heinz Catsup. Heinz has 60 percent market share around the world with 79 production plants. Only 22 of those plants are in the U.S. The rest are in foreign countries. The cheap foreign labor helps keep the products' price affordable for us, and good profit for Teresa Kerry. I think John better check with his wife before penalizing anybody.
Regarding job performance, Mr. Kerry isn't doing so well lately either. The Senate took a one week recess recently. Rather than taking his one week ski vacation during the recess, he took it after the Senate returned to work so he was absent for an entire week of Senate voting...AWOL.
When you skip votes, it's easy to be on both sides of each issue. When questioned, he can say didn't vote for a bill, or he can also say he didn't vote against it...whichever is more convenient. Do you think Congress will deduct missed votes from Mr. Kerry's paycheck like we get docked if we don't show up for work?
