  Carly Patterson to the Rescue

As I have watched 16-year-old Olympic Gold Medalist Carly Patterson make the media rounds, I have been so impressed with her wholesome, girl-next-door manners and appearance. She is bright, thoughtful, charming...and CLOTHED! Even on David Letterman, there was no cleavage, no belly button ring and nothing showing above the knee! SHOCKING!

Just wondering aloud here: Is it too much to hope for her to become the new pop icon for millions of girls who have been sinking under the tutelage of other recent pop princesses? I say out with the Old and in with the New!
