Anyone notice Fiona's new bio on the website?

Actually it's...kind of interesting. If you remember, Fiona was the relative from hell who came to "help" after April was born and basically ended up freeloading. (Her storyline also touched off that dumb "Three's Company" misunderstanding where the town thought John was cheating.)

Well, the interesting part is that she was brought up in a very rough-and-tumble background, and that the one thing she learned from her ne'er-do-well father was that the strong were meant to take advantage of the weak, that the have-nots were justified in cheating the haves.

It goes into her POV during the time she stayed with the Pattersons...and it actually presents the point of view that we all agreed on, that the Pattersons were nice to the point of doormattitude and that this wasn't necessarily a good thing. It's kind of refreshing to have that point of view presented...it's been a long time. And the bio actually acknowledges (through Fiona's POV) that Mike and Liz are too pampered and sheltered by their parents.

(But you know how we joked about the Pattersons sometimes looking like Muppets? Fiona REALLY looks like a Muppet. The kind we usually saw during the "At The Dance" segments.)
