October is Breast Awareness Month

UPDATE: Just go read this instead.¬†   Every October I rant a bit about how the Susan G Komen Foundation is nothing but a party planning service. In addition to misery directly from the NY Giants (G-Men fix that shit) there’s the misery of pink all over the NFL to raise Breast Awareness. No, they aren’t raising Breast Cancer Awareness.
