Some of you may be asking why I chose Tipper Gore for such a coveted position as Woman of the Month. There's just an earthy, fuck-me quality to this future first lady that makes me weak in the knees. Is it the name? "Gore" does have a nice ring to it, but there's so much more to Tipper than that. A tireless advocate for the mentally ill, the homeless and an outspoken proponent of gay and lesbian rights, Mrs. Gore brings to the table a certain charm and charisma that's been lacking in our second -- or first -- ladies up until this point.
A big girl with the kind of sorority girl attitude that would stop a pig in traffic, Tipper is mostly remembered for championing record censorship in 1985 as part of the Parents' Music Resource Center (PMRC). Ultimately, the PMRC was successful in forcing the record industry into placing consumer labels on music with violent or explicit lyrics. Parents across American can feel safe knowing their kids won't be exposed to anything jarring or repulsive thanks to the PMRC "CENSORED" label.
Thankfully, our Mrs. Gore can take a joke as well as any ex-cheerleader with big hair and the kind of breasts that could nurse a snake at the bottom of a volcano. Whether it's playing drums for Dweezil Zappa's latest album or inline skating with her kids, Tipper's the kind of gal you'd pick first for your softball team. Hubba-hubbalistically, she gets a nine on K's scale of fuckable babes.

Karin Slaughter grew up in a small South Georgia town. She has been writing short stories since she was a child, an era she admits took place awhile ago but not all that long ago. She is, in fact, younger than anyone else on this web site — so there! Today, she lives near the Atlanta area with a long-suffering partner and legions of long-distance admirers. Her first published novel, Blindsighted, will be released by Morrow in Sept. 2001.
Her second and third books in the same series are also scheduled for publication over the next couple of years.
