Geraldine Ferraro Dies

Geraldine Ferraro Dies
Ferraro died at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston of a blood cancer after a 12-year illness, according to a statement from her family.

"Her courage and generosity of spirit throughout her life waging battles big and small, public and personal, will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed," the statement said.

Ferraro was an energetic and articulate three-term congresswoman with a liberal reputation when Mondale picked her from the male-dominated U.S. House of Representatives. Ferraro's presence on the Democratic ticket generated excitement on the campaign trail, particularly among women.

Yet on Election Day, Republican President Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Bush won in a landslide, carrying every state except Mondale's home state of Minnesota.

In delivering her concession speech that night, Ferraro saluted Mondale for helping women reach new political heights.

Gadhafi Plastic Surgery

Gadhafi Plastic Surgery
It was well past midnight when the Brazilian surgeon says he was escorted deep inside a bunker in the Libyan capital.

His assignment: to shave years off Moammar Gadhafi's appearance by removing fat from his belly and injecting it into his wrinkled face. The Libyan leader also got hair plugs.

"He told me that he had been in power for 25 years at that time, and that he did not want the young people of his nation to see him as an old man," Dr. Liacyr Ribeiro recalled. "I recommended a facelift, but he refused."

The secretive four-hour procedure in 1995 was done, at Gadhafi's insistence, with local anesthesia because he wanted to remain alert. Midway through, the Libyan leader stopped to have a hamburger.

Abercrombie padded bikini tops

Abercrombie padded bikini tops
Swimsuit season is looming and stores are galore with itsy bitsy bikinis.

But shockingly, one of America's largest clothing retail chains, Abercrombie & Fitch, is marketing padded bikini tops to girls as young as eight.

Included in the current spring line for Abercrombie Kids (a division of the fashion company specifically dedicated to eight to 14 year olds) is the "Ashley" Push-Up Triangle -- a triangular-shaped bikini top which comes complete with thick padding.

Moms and child development experts are aghast over the garment and the damage it could potentially do to young girls in making them feel inadequate with their pre-adolescent bodies.

"This is appalling! If a parent buys a padded bikini for an eight-year-old, children's services should be called! The sexualization of teens is bad enough and now this trend is trickling down to our babies," parenting expert Dr. Janet Rose said.

Newman's early tribute to Taylor
Paul Newman Called Elizabeth Taylor 'a Helluva Actress'
Superstar to superstar. To Paul Newman, Elizabeth Taylor was "a functioning voluptuary … a courageous survivor, a helluva actress and someone I am extremely proud to know."
Even in the sanitized 1958 MGM version of Tennessee Williams's potent drama in which they costarred, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof – with the sultry Newman as the drunkard ex-athlete Brick and an indelible Taylor as his neglected wife, Maggie the Cat – the two sent audiences' pulses racing. But they were more than simply sex symbols. Both proved themselves Academy Award-level actors and world-class humanitarians.

Elizabeth Taylor has led a big life. "'The more the better' has always been my motto," she once said.

Yet, despite her timeless beauty, juicy personal history, and legendary film performances, her most extraordinary role has been that of a tireless fundraiser for AIDS awareness. For Taylor, living large means giving big.
