Skin Cancer

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:46PM

Years ago, I forget how many, but at least 20, someone gave me a picture they took of me and I was surprised to notice a brown spot about the size of a quarter on my cheek.

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:40PM

Mr. Stav's opinion piece was entertaining to say the least. So allow me to get up on the old soapbox and have a stab at it. Does anyone even need a reason to vote yes or no?

I was told by 12 people who listened to my reasons for voting no that I'd convinced them to do the same.
