What is not disappointing... First off, I received a written response from US Senator Mike Johanns to my request for information... Exercise In Futility and I'll transcribe it this weekend and share it next week.
Now on to today's topic...
Many readers of the blog section here at the McCook Gazette know that I've been hanging around here a little over 2 years now, and have contributed 400 some blog entries. Now I admit that I've had to borrow plenty to come up with some of those blogs. I think some were pretty good, some sucked pretty badly, but I generally try and pass on things I find interesting or important, and I haven't ever been restricted or banned... yet.
Some of my blogs seem to get some attention, most get little or none. If you were to only compare the political blog responses here at the Gazette to those I've gotten, I think you would see politics has your attention! Mike and Sam's blogs garner more response from you readers in a week than I've gotten the entire time I've been blogging. I'm NOT disappointed about that.
What I do find disappointing is that what I consider pretty important to you and your family gets no response whatsoever. I can hardly believe that your health and that of your family is less important than all the political hacksmanship that graces this website.
I'm talking about my my last blog about the Relay For Life... http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/hoag/entry/40310. Not one response, no support pro or con, nothing, nada. I really don't believe that I'm the only cancer survivor around here willing to say something... anything.
Here is a fact... One in two men (50%) and one in three women (33%) will develop cancer over a lifetime of about 80 years.
How do you like them odds?
Why not do something to help improve your odds of survival? Let's PARTY! Form a team, make a contribution, do something for the Furnas County Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. Get involved for a change with something you CAN make a difference with. Please.
