He's the kind of professional - and friend - I trust to offer smart counsel and honest input in every situation.

I love to iron. The first thing I do whenever I get to a hotel is borrow an iron. No one else ever touches my shirts.

I think it's more of a mental relationship rather than a physical one. The nicest thing about them is that he's like the kid brother, rather than the lover, she wants.
Governor Pataki, you've ruled Ground Zero with an iron fist for too long. You've let corporate elites and other special interest groups dominate what's done here.
