At age 11 she knows all the moves, has a sash proclaiming herself queen of the Antique City, and was blowing irresistible WWII-style kisses to a hapless Times pho- tographer as she marched in the Christmas Parade. Yes, he took her photo (see Page A-4). Movie-goers, remember the name, Courtney Lee: Tessa Sanchez, age 4, could well be her understudy. She too is pictured at the parade. I think Congressmen should wear uniforms ,like NASCAR drivers so we can identify their corporate sponsors. Cliff Trahan, the great artist and furniture maker, this bit of wisdom is just for you: "No mat- ter how much you push the en- velope, it'll still be stationery." Marie Troyer the great travel- er and renovator, say you agree: "If you jumped off the bridge in Paris, you'd be in Seine."
