|Subject: Gary, I've been lucky enough to meet Natalie a few times and I think she is anything but high maintenance. Her family is also absolutely wonderful. Last year, I was standing around waiting to talk to Dominique Dufour (lol) and both Natalie's mom and dad invited me to hang out in Natalie's dressing room, where she was absolutely sweet, charming and lovely. This was also four years after I had met her the first time. I also think you raise a really interesting point: what is the goal of the winner of a national titleholder - to place internationally or do a good job here at home? Intriguing...!
