I was accosted by three individual soliciting donations for Komen. I laid into them about my total loss of confidence in the organization, and one of them with a beaten puppy look on her face said, "I know, I wish it didn't happen either, but we still help a lot of people." I responded, "Excluding the ones who do not hold the same views as you." The two others stood in stunned silence, and the woman I was speaking to just stood the smiling.

As the husband of a breast cancer survivor (three years and counting), I was appalled when I read this earlier this week. Handel and probably others on the Komen board should be fired immediately.

They plan to still end funding at the end of the fiscal year. We'll see if the anger erupts again.
