TANGENT Tom's not afraid of heights

Chicago Tribune

We've noticed how actor Tom Cruise (routinely reported at 5 foot 7 ... riiight) tends to end up with taller women, now Katie Holmes (5' foot 8"). Maybe we should admire the sense of security he must feel in himself.

Of course, he has that rich-and-famous thing going for him. And looks. But if he wanted to, he could look like a giant.

A shorter woman can make a ... um ... not-so-tall man look like a total stud.

Well, maybe not ... but certainly tall.
