"I'll only be gone for a year." "Me, too. Right. So, hey, what's a year?" "It's the time it takes the Earth to make a full revolution around the

to change." "No, things have to change. You know what? Hey, I taught you
about eye contact, you taught me about evolution. So... here's

As we mentioned last week, TYLL will be hosting a weekly feature on an awesome character we think you should get to know. On this Labor Day Monday, why not join us in celebrating another inspiring lady on our airwaves? This week’s subject may reside on the small screen, but her accomplishments, and her personality, are larger than life!
Name: Temperance Brennan (Née Joy Keenan… It’s a long story. Also goes by “Bones” by a certain someone. Get it?)
Occupation: Forensic anthropologist at the Jeffersonian Institution in Washington, D.C.; FBI consultant
Whether it’s fending off the army in a Tibetan jungle, surveying genocide grave sites in Darfur, writing the next New York Times bestselling crime novel, running away with the circus (yeah that happened), or generally kicking ass, she’s a woman of action you don’t want to mess with. Yet she’s got a heart of gold that makes you keep coming back for more.
Meet Temperance Brennan!
