News-Leader columnist Sarah Overstreet takes exception to a toss-away comment from this blog, reprinted Tuesday in the daily newspaper.

How do we know? It's in Brian Lewis' Ozarks Voices blog:
A quote from Ron Davis' blog in our paper today has got my colleague Sarah Overstreet steamed.

Davis is quoted responding to the News-Leader's editorial on anonymous bloggers. But forget the points that Davis made. Focus on the but.

What Davis wrote, that we quoted in our paper and that got Sarah talking is: "But - and it's a but as big as Jessica Biel's behind.... -"

"Who is Jessica Biel?" Sarah asked me. And why is Ron Davis making fun of her butt?

Still, since I found myself in this conversation, I had to respond. From a man's perspective, it's not necessarily a vicious insult to say that a woman has a big butt, I told Sarah. But Sarah disagreed.

I turned to my colleagues in the sports department for support and they agreed with me.

"I don't like people picking on other people's body parts," Sarah said. "Unless they're Rush Limbaugh." Well, that's between Sarah and Rush.

But my message to the women of the world is don't feel self-conscious if you're (sic) butt is a little bigger than you'd like.
Hey Sarah, have you seen this amazing asset? We're not picking on it. God bless Lewis and the kids in sports for seeing the obvious.

And Sarah, what do you mean, you don't know who Jessica Biel is? She's the one who's not Jessica Alba.

First the anti-Springlawn Movie article and now this. I think Sarah is getting to be a cranky old lady. I'll bet the whole "put your name on your blog" was her idea after I wrote what I thought of that Springlawn article. THEY ARE OUT TO GET ME!!!

Gee, and that was my favorite line in the whole post. But you're right (no sic), having a big butt is a good thing in our current culture. It's looked at as a positive attribute - no pun intended. So, to those of us who don't have big butts, your line was kind of a dis. Thanks, Ron. Now I'm pissed.

Sarah "I Like Boney Butts" Overstreet is almost as egotastical and anal retentive as Rachel "Her Grace" Aram. I would type in my screen name, but Bugger hates it, so I'll just have to settle for being yet another "anonymous" bugger commenter.

As it says in the Book of Rhinoplasty, Chapter 68, in a reading from Gaska's First Letter to the Flat Chested:

"Yea, let she who writes columns and who has NOT undergone a fair amount of plastic surgery of her own, cast the first thong..."

I'd like to see a tally of the number of times in her illustrious career Ms. Overblown has picked on "other people's body parts." The irony of her complaint is rich.

Is it just me, or did the type size on this page suddenly get bigger?

Pretty strong words from the woman who allowed the Telepictures Corporation to "enhance" her on-air appearance. Glass houses, Sarah, glass houses.
