    -Jackson,
    Perhaps you're not aware of the misappropriation of funds when the NFL had a tie-in with the United Way some years back. Not only Joe, but many of us think the NFL is back to their shananegens and the next victims are those with breast cancer. Take a look and see how much money the United Way actually got after the NFL skimmed their share.

    Chuckle:
    Even though you echo the sentiments of Joe Guzzardi about the PR & profits you still choose to smear him. And nowhere in Joe's column did he imply he was against
    the money going to research. How convenient it is for you to not echo his sentiments
    that he is not against breast cancer research. Instead you choose to cast him off as someone insensitive and could care less if these people die. Perhaps it is you that is about as sensitive as an anvil.

    Thank you Theresa! I had the same reaction to Joe's column too, and thought this guy must be as sensitive as an anvil.

    As the husband of a 10yr Survivor I proudly support Pink October by wearing a pink ribbon lapel pin or a pink livestrong type bracelet. My wife & I have also participated in several of the Geweke events here in town, as well as the Komen "Race for the Cure" walk in Sacramento.

    Of course we recognize that alot of the products jumping on the Breast Cancer bandwagon are doing it for PR & profits, but the more money towards research the better. Our prayer is to find a cure before our young daughter becomes 37, the age of my wife when she was diagnosed.

    Joe points out the NFL. Did he do any research into the NFL's tie-in? Just from watching tv I learned this past month that Commissioner Roger Goodell's own mother had breast cancer? Or that Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder's wife is also a survivor? For more info on the NFL's PINK program visit www.nfl.com/pink

    As many other readers have asked, why is Joe still a columnist now that he lives in PA?

    Excellent column, Mrs. Larson! While I do not have anyone in my family afflicted by breast cancer, colon cancer is prevalent - my Dad and several of his siblings succombed to this horrifying form of cancer.

    I agree that all cancer research benefits the fight against cancer in general - the potential treatments that may not work against one form of cancer, may work for another. Supporting "pink" October helps fight this devastating disease for all of humanity.

It doesn't really work Shane's way, either. God needs superstitious humans to exist; without ignorance, God is nothing.
