The thoughts and theories of a guy who basically should have gone to bed hours ago.

I know, I know - what's the point? But look at it this way - I stayed up late writing it, but you're reading it...

Let's call ourselves even & move on, OK?

Winnie Cooper Sets 'Em Straight

Danica McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, has had enough:

When girls see the antics of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, they think that being fun and glamorous also means being dumb and irresponsible. But I want to show them that being smart is cool. Being good at math is cool. And not only that, it can help them get what they want out of life. I want to tell girls that cute and dumb isn't as good as cute and smart.

Ms. McKellar has written a book entitled, "Math Doesn't Suck," in which she offers "tips to avoid mistakes on homework, ways to overcome test-day anxiety and profiles of three beautiful mathematicians."

What a fantastic message at a time where the opposite message is so, so prevalent.

Go, Winnie, Go!
