Happy Birthday, Dr. Jo Harding!

"You're running the lab? I don't think so!"

Because it's a stormy day around Dee Cee and because I'll be out of town on Friday, I'll go ahead and note here that June 15th is the birthday of that Thinking Man's Babe, Helen Hunt.

Yeah, we love her round here. Got an issue with that? Deal with it.

Robbo, I'll Yip! for Helen. I thought she was adorable during the "Mad About You" days. In "As Good As It Gets" she made me want to be a better man.

But then came "Pay It Forward" the movie with the worst ending ever. And after "What Women Want" she seemed to disappear off the face of the Earth.

What really soured me on her though was when she dumped Hank Azaria.

I mean, this guy stuck with her forever and then...I mean you just don't dump Moe Szyslak!

I have no disagreement with your opinion of the delightful Ms. Hunt. But I have to make note of the small fact that despite your references and quotes from Twister, you're showing a photo from What Women Want.

Ah, Stephen. My lame joke was to suggest that this was Jo after the grant money was distributed. As I see it, she's the high-powered shmooze-artist while poor ol' Bill is stuck crunching numbers somewhere back in the lab.

Rueage. IMMINENT rueage.

Doesn't she play on the all-girls varsity team now?

Not that I know of, but then again I don't keep up with these things.

I still think of Helen mostly from her Mad About You/Twister days and am loathe to wreck that image. (That's why, for example, I never saw Julie Andrews in S.O.B.)

A blinkered view, perhaps, but it's my mind and I can edit if I want to.

I have kept my eye on her since she starred in "Quarterback Princess".
