  1. Jan Rodak says:

    Shade, I’m not sure which year you’re citing, but for 2011 Komen devoted 15% of its revenues toward research. See this Reuters piece for verification:

    Note that I did not imply the org spends only that amount on overall cancer services. But they *do* call themselves “Susan G. Kom For The Cure,” and it’s impossible to achieve a cure without research. Adding to that, they refuse to fund research using embryonic stem cells, which many in the scientific community think is appalling. Thanks, Jan

  2. Rusty says:

    Hal -I like the fellow you had on from 9 to 9:30. Very thought provoking.

  3. Rusty says:

    Hal – To any and all Liberal-Progressive talkers on KRXA and elsewhere: It may feel good, but if they keep calling for continued chaos and uncertainty in the Republican primary field, they are just enabling the Rove plan to parachute an un-sullied, un-vetted, last minute relief candidate into the arms of the pissed off GOP faithful. It will be August, and Obama will have to pivot very hard to deal with that blind-side. And if I am wrong – thanks the Gods.
    Thanks for starting KRXA.

  4. Dave says:

    In response to rusty’s thought of a republican dropping in at the last moment. It ain’t happening, there is no candidate. Rommney will be the legal winner with enough votes and go on to lose in the general 52-48.
    This seems to be the most probable scenario
