Not to bring up upsetting topics, but Ken Starr tried to subpoena
What's-her-name's bookstore purchases from B&N to prove that she
was a sex starved lunatic.

Heh.  Wouldn't it have been funny if it turned out she only read
Children's Fantasy, and was a huge DWJ fan?  Of course then we'd
all be embarassed about all those Jenny Craig commercials.

(Note to non-Americans who are lucky enough to live in countries
where the news is not obsessed with embarassing American
presidential fobiles, which I believe rules out all you UK types:
you don't want to know the details.  Really.)
