I don't believe that is serves any purpose to bring negative opinions about who others honestly view as strong and/or gorgeous women.

Let's keep it positive please.

Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring.

She was a biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, editing scientific publications, but she became famous by writing about the world she loved for the general public. First she wrote about oceans, but she made her mark in environmental history by writing about the dangers of DDT and other chemical pesticides. She was criticized when the book first came out, but DDT has been banned in many countries around the world.

When I was a kid, it was a rare treat to see a bald eagle. Today, I see them frequently. I thank Rachel Carson for that.

Watch out. That poster has a low startle point.

         I agree 100% Roland...Up until now this has been a completely , feel good place to visit.  I know that there are always two sides to every story,  It would, however
 totally change the feel and texture of this thread to start to downgrade the opinions or the good feelings of others. 
         I think a place that would be more appropriate to vent these opinions would
be the Bitch Bitch Bitch thread...........JMO.....I dearly love everything about this thread.....



     Beautiful mind
