Cancer Society Gives Up On Cancer?

I guess our local chapter of the American Cancer Society was following its parent organization's lead in trying to keep that hookah place in Arcata from opening.

Well, in fairness, at least the hookah place would be using tobacco, which has something to do with cancer.

On the national front, the American Cancer Society recently announced it will spend next year's entire advertising budget on promoting universal health care rather than anything cancer related. Mike Tanner, of the Cato Institute, explains why that's a bad idea.

That is a terrible idea.

Look at the organization's bank account. It doesn't need our help.

Look at its board of directors and its industry connections and the types of things it chooses to fight (or more importantly not fight).

The sad thing is that so many people are duped into supporting the organization. It has a tremendous volunteer network, people who think they are doing the right thing.
