Payback

A few months ago I wrote a post about how it gets a little tiring to hear so much about breast cancer when there are plenty of other things out there that can kill you. And some of you were at least mildly offended by that. So, to make peace with all of you, I am going to run in the Race for the cure on May 9.

The website does a marvelous job of making you seem like a terrible person if you don't set a donation goal for yourself when you register. While I'm not big on passing the guilt buck, it's time to see if the rest of you are to this cause beyond questioning my sense of ethics. Visit the website to make a donation to the cause through me, so I don't seem like a misogynistic slacker. That link should take you to a page where you can search for a participant. I'm on a team called Hope Hunters (I had nothing to do with that name).

I wasn't offended by the cancer post, but I am offended by this, you money-grubbing jerk.

I guess I can offend one group of the other. What I want to see is who is offended by both posts.

I am now annoyed with "Race for the Cure." Sorry Joel, I actually tried to donate through you, but apparently they don't like anything under $10, and I just don't have that to give right now. Sorry. I swear has no one learned anything from the March of Dimes?!

I had no idea there was a minimum donation amount. Sorry, Lizzy. I appreciate the attempt, though.
