    I do not find the comment about a wet suit to be absurd. It was quite cold, she was not going to sweat terribly in that weather because she would not be hot, just a little less cold (remember how...

    I though it was obvious that I meant when Stefanidi went there; some great on the men's side with Toby but nothing for the women.

    What were the PRs before they went to school in the US, and what...

    I got the response that I was wanting - what more of an antithesis can there be for Cunliffe than someone going to Standford. Unlike Arkansas (Sutej), I do not see Stanford as a big PV place,...
