my comment is that what I wrote is authentic my daughter and her friend were hardly intrusive bought the books and stood in line for the autograph quietly Winger was true to her record: arrogant insulting all of the above again the rumors are true she needs an attitude adjustment

I wonder if what zoe Gayl's daughter experienced as "arrogant patronizing and nasty" was merely Ms. Winger's annoyance/impatience with people who only want to talk about who she did or didn't get along with 30 years ago. I mean, some of the questions Ms. Winger's getting asked on this tour are ridiculous, although, thankfully, not in this interview. For ZG to point the damning finger of shame at someone when she wasn't even there...well, gee, did you even bother to listen to THIS interview? What is your comment about THIS interview?

If metaphors are used so much, don't they lose their magic?
As for the "robot lady", my sister made the same comment the other day! Leonard, you should have her in the show...

Hi, Debra!
The word you want to invent to describe a snowball effect on the web exists. It's "viral."
