Author's profile in the sidebar? (6 posts)

    Is there a way to pull the text entered in the "Profile" box -the one in the WP admin interface- to display on the blog? I'd like to set up a small description of the author in there and be able to display it in my sidebar without having to insert it with HTML in the index page.
    That way all I would have to do if I want to change it would be to edit it in the "Profile" tab of the WP admin interface and update it.
    I tried searching for this but nothing really came up.
    Any ideas are appreciated.

    Sorry podz, but probably most all of them are "in the loop" tags.

    I believe the answer is, "Not currently within WP, but perhaps someone, somewhere has created a hack but heaven knows where it is." :-)
