Cathy Huckaby, of Lodi, recalls the scene quite clearly. She'd
left her cruise ship and joined other tourists on a bus to visit
the Caribbean port city of St. Thomas. Sitting in front of her were
two plump middle-aged women, bejeweled and bedecked.
"What is there to do here?," one lady asked the other.
