So why don't you enter her (and yourself) in the contest? She's practically a close personal friend of yours. Oh. That is tragic.

Can we have her do an in-store appearance with the authors, if she is chosen?

Exactly, Rita. I recognized her immediately as the HF Servlets & JSP cover model. Please someone different.

Is she or isn't she? Only her hairdresser knows for sure...

or


If it is her, she's probably already busy doing in-store appearances. Maybe Mike could ask her next time he's sees her, she'd do him a special favor for sure...

Yeah, she is the same (or her evil twin), but maybe it's that she's wearing her glasses when she's learning servlets, but now thanks to design patterns, she finally has time to snowboard...

I like that.. Can we move it to essays area?
It would be little unfair if Kathy wins, but I like the idea.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
