ON A LIGHTER NOTE ... Historians have speculated about what gave the "Mad Monk" Rasputin such a hold over women -- most notoriously over the Tsarina Alexandra, whose devotion to him helped lead to the Russian revolution. Was it the belief that he could cure the young heir's hemophilia? Was it his piercing eyes, as romantics have written? Welllllll, noooooo. Turns out, it may have been something considerably larger than his eyes.
