GREAT, NOW THEY'LL DISMISS MY SUIT TOO:

Librarian loses 'pretty girl' lawsuit against Harvard (AP, 4/04/05)

She looks pretty good for a 40-year-old, though the AP would have done its readers a service if they had provided an accompanying photos sans winter jacket to show whether or not there were grounds for the claims made by her supervisor about the sexy outfits, low cut blouses, and tight pants.

"I'm too sexy for my books."

Acceptably attractive, but certainly not all that and a bag of chips, as she must think she is. As a general rule, 40 y.o.'s do themselves no favors by dressing like 20 y.o.'s. Certainly a career limiting move for anyone serious about their career path.

Great, now they'll dismiss my suit too:

If only you'd depilated before you filed it.

A passing resemblance to Monica can get you in trouble.

By the way, she's "black"? Maybe it's the contrast in the photo, or maybe I should move up my appointment with the optometrist.
