ONLY ONE NAME TWICE

Of all the names of characters played by ROC, the only name she has had twice is Jessica, although Sue occurs once as a first name and once as a middle name. Laura and Laurie are quite similar. Bettie might be considered a duplication of Elizabeth.

XENA BODY ARMOUR

According to the Christian Science Monitor, the US military is developing "Xena: Warrior Princess style body armour" for women. The idea is for the armour to conform more closely to the shape of the female body. Currently, female soldiers have a choice of 11 sizes of male body armour. The US Army is testing eight additional sizes made specifically for women, with, among other changes, more-narrow shoulders and bra-shaped darting in the chest.

MYSTERY APPEARANCE

Ms. O'Connor some years ago starred(?) in a movie "eXtreme Reality", which was a mockumentary about a reality dating show. Don't know anything more about this one. Don't know the year or any details.
