A Blast From The Past Brings A Glimmer Of Hope For The Future

Hey, remember Danica McKellar? She was Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years. She graduated summa cum laude from UCLA and coauthored a scientific paper about a theorem in mathematical physics. And now she's written a book, called Math Doesn't Suck. The 32-year-old hopes to show that "being good at math is cool." "When girls see the antics of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, they think that being fun and glamorous also means being dumb and irresponsible," the 32-year-old says. Uh, we couldn't agree more. To put things in a little more perspective, she and Tara Reid are the same age.
