Six In The Morning: Breasts, Evictions And Pissed-Off Egyptians

1 GETTING THE BREAST POSSIBLE RESULTS New guidelines on breast cancer screenings say that most women aged 40-49 shouldn’t have routine mammograms. Something to discuss with your doctor, or not in the event you are a dude.

2 OCCUPIERS ORDERED OUT A judge says, well, what it says in that header there. The Occupiers have until noon or popular Toronto Mayor Rob “”It is time this protest has come to an end” Ford will, uh, get them I guess. The Vancouver Occupiers also have a deadline to shoo! today, though Rob Ford is probably not involved.

3 SPAIN ELECTS NEW GOVERNMENT TO PRESIDE OVER SHITTY TIMES The Socialists are out, the People’s Party is in and the country’s debt demons don’t care.

4 THEY’RE RIOTING IN EGYPT AGAIN The military isn’t calling elections and Egyptians are agitated. At least 22 people are dead, too. How lovely. In other Middle East news, Syria is criticized by Turkey and Iran is facing a sanctionpalooza over its alleged nuclear weapons program.

5 G8 RESORT RENO COST $2 MILLION Story here. On the one hand, boo. On the other hand, well, when your country hosts international events you ought to do it right. On the third hand, but come on, boo.

6 SUPERCOMMITTEE, MEET KRYPTONITE It took awhile, but American Republican politicians have finally trained Democrats to refuse to compromise and now the United States’ government is deadlocked over taxes again. Oh why can’t those Democrats cut social security and medicare spending and also keep tax rates on the wealthy down? They’re such elitists.

  1. Just so you know, it is possible for guys to get breast cancer. There are no screening programs for men that I know of, but if you find a suspicious lump there (or ANYWHERE!), go to your doctor and get it checked out.

  2. That’s true, and I’m glad you added that for anyone who didn’t know.

    My intended point was that men don’t need to speak with their doctors about scheduling mammograms.
