I WENT early on May 13 to cast my vote. The precinct was in much better state than what we found in 2010.

WHO, among men, like flat-chested women? Hollywood actor and singer Frank Sinatra, whose fame swept the 1940s, probably leads the way. His second wife Mia Farrow was a much younger and skinny girl that could not show much from the 90 degree angle off-front.
