    Woo babe Les. Hot bod and hot attitude in those army fatigues.

    Well done WLS Channel on another full of variety, different styles of presentation, and interesting news. Sooo professionally put together.

    Leslie must be quite someone to be able to speak so well/remember lines etc for such a presentation. Its quite a skill.

    GREAT G.I. Jane reporting!

    About “Too Fat to Be a Dad,” the ratio of children needing adoptive homes to parents willing to provide those homes is so high that to disqualify a home because one parent is morbidly obese is a crying shame!
