This final note today, which I just think is kind of a cool story.
Forbes magazine is out with its list of female self-made billionaires. It's a pretty small club: Oprah; Meg Whitman, late of eBay, now CEO of Hewlett Packard; and Sara Blakely. She's 41, the youngest woman on the list. Sole owner and proprietor of Spanx -- it makes girdles, basically.
Best part? Got out of college in Florida, thought about law school, instead went to Disney World and tried out to be Goofy.
They wouldn't hire her 'cause she was too short.
