You really need to back off the assumptions and the accusations. Fashion never exerted any influence on either of my two daughters Ś certainly not to the extent you seem to think it has. The biggest influence on my girls has been my wife and me. You can think I'm part of all these problems if you so choose. Just as long as you accept the fact that I don't see you as the solution.<br><br>I am impressed, however, that you seem to believe you possess the power to influence my career. Now that's rich! <br><br>I suggest you look out for yourself and your own. Don't presume to know who I am, how I make my living, or what my family life is. Because beyond what few anecdotal details I post here occasionally, you know jack zune about me.<br><br>

Really? What did he do to the story that Brown didn't already skew? I read Da Vinci and saw the movie and both were okay as far as thriller/mysteries, neither worth revisiting.<br><br>My purpose of raising the specter of Howard was that he is golden right now and could do and make anything he wanted. I'm sure it's a nice place to be.<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)

Before you came in here and made this thread all about you, we were discussing the problem with skinny models and in light of the recent death of the Brazilian girl I say it's a problem that is just beginning to draw the ire of the public.<br><br>As it is your wont to "handle" every situation, you assure everyone your monitoring things from NYC and say I'm being alarmist. When challenged you immediately begin offering up your credentials! <br><br>I say emaciated models have been a problem and the trend began ever since Twiggy hit the runway and it's about time the fashion industry developed their Code of Conduct and you said that was old news. You picked some arbitrary time-frame and said this started a year ago. Show me how the intervention began a year ago. What exactly was the tipping point as you see it there steve?<br><br>When I read the news of that lovely young lady's death I began googling everything I could read about the matter and hell yes, I became alarmed. TWO MIIION pages on the subject of skinny models! Of course I've only been reading about it since mid-November but you on the other hand, not to be outdone, have been on this for a year. But if it's all the same to you Steve, I'll defer to the subject-matter experts.<br><br>Fashion influences everyone and everything steve. Fashion drives consumerism. Fashion and sex are synonymous. When you're are challenged about that you begin trying to moderate the discussion. <br><br>It's very telling indeed that you are insulted by the word "ignorant" as though I am belittling you, when in fact what I am saying is I have read more about this subject in the last few weeks than I ever imagined possible and you try to lay this at the feet of a few mentally-imbalanced skinny models. You aren't ignorant steve, you're naive.<br><br>"Il faut souffrir pour Étre belle."<br><br>It's hard to believe young boys are still being killed for their shoes!<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)
Still on the assumption trail, I see. Including where I live. Not in NYC for some time now. Oops! And you're still having difficulty with someone disagreeing with your point. Oh well, rant on if you must. Ring the alarm loudly and save the world. Good luck, Crusader. As for me, there are so many more problems I must become part of, and so little time. <br><br>
