    Quote of note
    "I feel like we were misled in providing the picture. Had I known how the picture was going to be used, I wouldn't have wanted to send it." - Cancer survivor Monika Allen, who let Self magazine use a picture of her running in the LA Marathon while wearing a tutu and a Wonder Woman outfit. The magazine used the picture in a "BS meter" feature and essentially called the outfit ridiculous. Allen wore the outfit because she said it motivated her, USA Today reported.
