    If I see one more commercial use of the color pink and the logo, I'll scream. I wear the same pink items I always did, as I wear pink well, After a mastectomy in the spring, I focused on getting back to being myself and not wearing any logos and such. When October came around, I was appalled by pink desk calendars in office supply stores, pink grocery bags in the local grocery stores, and more pink clothing every place I turned from sporting goods stores to Walmart and Target to high end stores in the mall. Energy needs to be turned from phony awareness schemes that benefit the retail market to real dollars for research that actually help people (men included) and financial assistance for people who cannot afford the treatment they need.

    I so agree with you. The "Pink" that gets me is seeing the Major league teams using pink bats in Oct. and wearing Pink shoes. Come on all ready.

    Let's get away from the lousy pink and put those dollars to research and helping women and men afford all these tests and scans that are so important to saving lives.

    I loathe PINK. and I look good it that color also. but no more.

    One aspect I would underline in what both you ladies said: I would have no objection to any company using pink in October IF.......


    EVERY PENNY OF PROFIT FOR EACH PRODUCT THEY SELL IN PINK WOULD GO DIRECTLY TO RESEARCH FOR A CURE!!!


    No exceptions, no exclusion....Straight forward!!

    In fact, would I not only not object, I'd applaud them loudly!!

    If the NFL would donate to Breast Cancer research the money they spend outfitting all the teams with all the pink crap they wear in October, well...it's probably milions! The only group that makes out on that deal is the vendor who provides the pink stuff. There are so many better ways they could raise awareness! Like staffing a call center with volunteers and running a banner at the bottom of the screen encouraging people to call and pledge with the NFL matching their donations, or just rolling a banner encouraging people to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

    Such a waste of money!!!
