    Laura Rothenberg is 21 years old, but, as she likes to say, she already had her mid-life crisis a couple of years ago; and even then it was a few years late. Laura has cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and other organs. People with CF live an average of 30 years. Producer Joe Richman gave Laura a tape recorder. Laura kept an audio diary of her battle with the disease and her attempts to lead a normal life with lungs than often betrayed her. Laura died on March 20, 2003.

    Gibsonton, Florida is the retirement and off-season home for hundreds of carnival and circus show people. Called "Gibtown" by many of its residents, the town was at one time considered the oddest place is America. You could walk into any restaurant and find the World's Only Living Half Girl sipping coffee with her 8 foot 4 inch husband, Giant Al. They, along with the Lobster Man, Alligator Skin Man and the Monkey Girl, among others, made their living touring with carnival sideshows.
