Tit For Tat



Boy, those new recommendations for breast cancer screening really touched a nerve. Or a lump. Once Congress caught wind of the public outrage over researchers announcing research (which may or may not hold up over time–I don’t pretend to know) they ran to the nearest podium to out-mammogram their foes. Even Republicans who oppose spending money on anything without camouflage appeared ready to raise taxes if the money went exclusively to combat the bosom butcher. Woe to the pol who appears soft on breast cancer.

The pink ribbon is almost as sacred as the American flag and slapped on nearly as many products. You know, the ones that promise to part with a few pennies to “raise awareness” about breast cancer (is anyone unaware?) which I think means more pink ribbons raising more awareness on more products.

For the record, I oppose breast cancer.

While drawing this comic I took a short break for nourishment and grabbed a yogurt out of the fridge…
