Mary, I have come to visualize Holland as Avon; I didn't originally. But Avon fans can be very persuasive.

Ok, I read Making Lemonade. Man, thats a tough spot to be in. I'd never do what Marian did at the end, but I know lots of cops would. That poor family, hell of a story.

Who's Avon?

"Who's Avon?" he asks. Mike, I asked that same question here once, and wow did I ever get snowed with answers! Barbara has put up a page about the Holland/Avon controversy; that's a good place to start. It's http://www.barbarapaul.com/holland.html

I never heard of Blakes 7. Neither did my wife, but she says she's leaving me for Paul Darrow. What's with this guy?

Mike, I'm frequently at a loss to understand why some people find other people attractive. I don't see why men go ga-ga over Heather Locklear, for instance. It's not a gender thing; I am equally befuddled by the prevailing opinion that David Duchovny is sexy. Small eyes, big nose, soft white body. Likable, but not sexy.

But I am firmly in the camp of Avon/Darrow admirers. If your wife can see his appeal just from still shots, wait until she sees him in action. Blake's 7 is available on video.

Well, not all men. Some of us have much better taste. But I agree with your main point, of course. Not only is it surprising what movie/TV stars come to be considered sexy, it's also distressing how it often happens -- seemingly by fiat on the part of some arbiters of sexual taste, whereupon oodles of people start agreeing.

What, Kay? What extra post? Are you imagining things? Are you seeing double? Kay! Kay! Are you all right?!

(Yes, I was able to delete it via edit. I hadn't realized one could that. Thanks for telling me about it.)

David--your comment about some arbiter of taste or the other deciding who's sexy is spot on. There's no other way to explain the appeal to so many people of Leo DiCaprio. If it were just teenagers, OK--but adults seem to think he's attractive.

I mean, he's not ugly by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm at an age where men to have the appearance of being old enough to vote do a lot more for me.

I'm with you about Leo - he *still* looks like a kid to me.

One I can't explain even though I'm afflicted by it, is why Sam Waterston is attractive. He hasn't got what you'd call the usual semetrical features that qualify for "good looks". In his case, I think it must certainly be force of personality (which in his case *is* attractive). Now, I recently saw a picture of his son -- good looking.
