Putting aspirin between your legs, if you're a woman, is a form of "abstinence, which is still a form of birth control" KFKA talk-show host Devon Lentz says.
A spring awash with Etch A Sketch conservatives, camera-wielding GOP con men and a bogus deficit reduction budget from House Republicans shows that for the right, wrong is justified when it achieves the desired results.
If the recent past is any indication of Susan G. Komen's future, you must decide if your personal investment and that of your board members and executive team is more important than the success of the foundation.
