In the vivi la difference category by Dave Barry: “If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant’s life, she will choose to save the infant’s life without even considering if there is a man on base.”

Some trivia: Why are people in the public eye said to be “in the limelight”? A: In 1825 limelight was used in stage lighting by burning a cylinder of lime which produced a brilliant light. Performers on stage “in the limelight” were seen by the audience to be the center of attention.
