Heather Mills

as in sneaking admiration for... she's nutty and brave! Bunny boilers, a much-maligned and exclusively female section of society (male retort to being caught out! if you read your Susan Faludi). Men are hunters, predators, go-getters, attractively forceful and determined, women who exhibit similar behaviour should be ridiculed or sectioned.
Musing upon this, I remember as a child on a French farm, admiring and stroking a bunny and then reeling with surprise as I witnessed the farmer's wife grab it, knock it on the head, slit the skin around the middle, and with her husband, strip the carcass of it's skin by pulling at either end, as if they were taking off it's pyjamas.
