Leslie! I mean YES SIR. Great job as always! mm January 30, 2009 I am intrigued by the Full Sense. Duc Vuong January 30, 2009 Leslie looks HOT in fatigues! Watch out enemy insurgents! Michael Brandon January 30, 2009 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. Kathy Fehlbaum January 30, 2009 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!
