    There are cancers that kill more people than breast cancer — lung cancer’s leading the charge there, and prostate, colorectal, liver, and pancreatic cancers are close. But breast cancer deserves the focus it gets — it really is a killer that hits too damn many women (and men — more men die of breast cancer annually than testicular cancer). That’s why it’s too damn bad that SGK chose politics over health.

Of course, she takes her time and does it right and puts some love and effort into it. All things that are anathema to McMegan.
