This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

And the winner by a cute little upturned nose is...


Carey Lowell!

The current Mrs. Richard Gere gets the nod as the favorite Assistant District Attorney from the original version of Law & Order. 30% of the voters had her name on their ballots, though someone should teach the programmers at Google about that fancy mathematical concept of rounding, because 30.7% should round to 31%.

In numbers everyone can understand, Ms. Lowell got eight votes, while Jill Hennessy and Elisabeth Röhm both got seven. Angie Harmon got six, Richard Brooks and Alana De La Garza tied with five and poor Annie Parisse was only on one ballot. This means 39 votes on 26 ballots, so the average person voted one and a half times.

I'll start a new Highlight Reel™ later today.

"Former Mrs. Richard Gere"? I had no idea (of the "former", that is. I knew that they were married, just didn't know that they no longer are).

You are right, I was wrong. Fix that up. Thanks.

I bet the gerbil demographic put Lowell over the top.

Good choice. Ms. Lowell had the nicest legs on the show and that's saying something with Rohm and De La Garza wearing the short skirts as well.

There's a scene in her first season where she's interviewing a prisoner who has some information she needs, and he asks what she can do for him. She takes off her jacket, stretching in a way that enhances her bust. The prisoner, satisfied that an effort has been made, gives her the information.

Note: The prisoner was played by Michael K. Williams, who later gained fame as Omar Little on The Wire.

Nicely done. I'm glad Mr Gere has such good taste.

Both Ms. Lowell and Cindy Crawford are stunningly attractive. If the rumors of Mr. Gere playing for the other team are true, I don't think it's fair that he takes two such lovely women off the market.

Then again, if these were marriages of convenience, maybe it was convenient both ways, if you know what I mean.

Just speculatin'.
