OBL's March on Washington

How many billions for the war in Iraq?

How many billions to protect Mexican border?



How many billions to find a cure for cancer?


Our Boy Lance wants to know.
I want to know.
The former hockey coach at the University of Maine, the late Shawn Walsh, would have wanted to know.
So does my dear friend, Paul Regan.

So OBL was on Capital Hill Wednesday on Livestrong Day.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation was there, too, with two people from every state. Many of them were cancer survivors or caregivers.
They were there to lobby Congress for more cancer research funding.
They want to find a cure for cancer.
"I have the history, the passion, the time and the army," said OBL. "We want the hard questions asked.
These are the numbers: 600,000 Americans die every year from cancer.
"And remember, we vote," said Lance.

What irony. The pigs in congress are deemed successful for bringing home the pork. Yet, can never seem to trim the fat to fund no brainers like research.

My comments are devoted to my beloved friend Kim who was just told she has cancer for the 4th time. She is 32.

To 53rd:
My friend, Paul, is waging his fourth battle with cancer. Be strong; be supportive.
