TONI BRAXTON wears little more than an expression of defiance, her honey-hued skin set against a shock of white light, as she strategically holds a corner of a bed sheet inches beneath her navel, an arm concealing her chest. The sultry year-old multiplatinum rhythm-and-blues singer, named by People magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful people for the last two years, daughter of an Apostolic minister, is splashed unclothed across the June-July cover of Vibe magazine, the glossy monthly that follows urban music and life styles. In a suggestive pictorial inside, Ms. Braxton shatters forever the conventional thinking that black divas don't pose nude. We want an image to look up to. But a chair away, another barber, Rahsaan Strayhorn, 21, was not troubled by the singer's exposure. Scores of listeners, most of them black, have faxed or called in opinions, Ms. Williams said, noting that many have been critical of the pictures, some even outraged, and a main point of discussion has turned on race: should a black woman be seen so seductively?

A lot of Mormons think that good people will obviously recognize the truthfulness of the church and quickly join. The one I met was full of himself, a slob, and really not that great to women. Might be worth working through the missionary lessons and CES letter to see if they can agree at least to disagree. Just remember that you chose one another. I'll give him a chance to fix it by talking to him about it, but the more that I think about how he has treated me the more I just feel ready to check out of the whole situation. With such high standards of perfection, Mormon girls want a man who validates their efforts and confidently provides directionвa man who expects them to be beautiful.
