Who are we forgetting?
Is there a single girl out there who, before Steve Young got married, didn't think about him, just a little bit? I mean, I heard he was dating one of the DoubleMint twins, but I was sure that she was only after him for his money. I would have been after him for his good looks and his fame... far less shallow than the money. Really.
Of course, we are cousins, so it never would have worked out. We share that most prolific of all famous grandfathers, Brigham Young. I still held a silent, only slightly incestuous hope in my heart that one day... maybe...
But it was not to be. I remember the 60 Minutes episode where Mike Wallace interviewed Gordon B. Hinckley, Steve Young, some BYU students, the Marriott Hotel Chain owner, and a few others.
I couldn't help thinking, and please don't think less of my 18 year old self for this, that if I could somehow combine all of the elements represented by those men, that it would be really really great.
But, something that has just occurred to my 28 year old self is the distinct lack of female presence among those interviewed. Good thing Gladys Knight joined up... now there will be a representative of the fairer sex the next time the LDS Church is on national display.
