We have tickets to see Roseanne at a comedy club. I am so excited. I've loved her since I first saw her on the Tonight Show in the 80s. She had me at "I figure if they're still alive at the end of the day my job is done!"

No one had dared to be that irreverent about child-rearing before. She was the first woman brave enough to bring up the negatives as well as the wonderful things about raising children. I will always admire her for that.

Her show was also a first for many reasons, not the least of which for portraying a husband and wife who didn't look like models yet found each other to be very sexy. Otherwise, observing our culture, one would believe that only thin, beautiful people enjoy sex and romance--while everyone else watches.

Goddess bless Roseanne!
