National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October. NBCAM (pronounced neb cam) floods us with pink ribbons and races for the cure. It also overlooks the need for prevention and the harmful chemicals companies use in their products – products that companies then sell to fund a cure for a disease they help cause. Really, NBCAM is more like a NBSCAM.

Nice fall evening to you crisp lovelies.

That actually sounds like I’m commenting on the style in which you have been cooked. I apologize. I neither support nor condemn cannibalism.

October is a month that begins again tomorrow. It is a month that is known for at least two things: a sea of pink and a sea of spook.

For comments on the usual pink parade, check out GF’s analysis.

The question for Halloween is always, “What are you going as this year?”

Well friends, what am I going as? I have the notion that I want to be the Ted Kord Blue Beetle. I’ll try to bring you with me over the next few months as I attempt to compile this costume.
