Football Friday: Princess Picks The Giants


Week 3 of the NFL season is upon us and Princess the Camel, of Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacy Township has chosen another New York team this week to defeat its opponent.

Last week as everyone should know by now, the great prognosticator of the park, picked the Jets to upset the Patriots. It was a pick that had some scratching their heads but proved to be right on.

This week Princess forecasts the Giants to swashbuckler their way through Tampa and beat the Buccaneers.

“I think coach Coughlin is going to fix that run defense this week, and Eli looks like he is finally living up to the Manning pedigree. Now on to more important things …” said Princess after picking the Giants this week.

So far this season Princess is 1-1 with her picks.

Christie to Cancer Survivor: "Your Daughter Is An Exception" Not The Norm

Take a look at this amazing video put out by the Corzine campaign, in it Republican challenger Chris Christie argues with a cancer survivor about mandates that the State requires insurance providers to cover.

Christie believes in a mandate free state and he would eliminate all or most mandates proposed or enacted by the state.

The unseen women says to Christie that her daughter is at the same age now, as she was when she had her first cancer surgery. Christie responds to her by saying that her daughter would be an “exception” if she has indeed developed cancer in her 20’s.

Obviously Christie must not know a lot about cancer and it’s genetic impact on patients and their children, siblings or other family members. Otherwise he would not have talked over this woman or argued about the need for the woman’s daughter to be screened for cancer.

Having multiple members of my family diagnosed with cancer over the past few years, I know full well the importance of early detection in the fight against cancer. Many cancers, like breast and colon-rectal cancer, have been found to be genetic in nature, meaning that there are genes that are passed along from parents to children that make the child of a cancer patient more likely to develop the disease than children from non-cancer patients.

Mandating that insurance companies provide genetic testing for cancer patients and survivors saves lives and money in the long run.

Christie should know the facts before he speaks about cancer and its effects on families in the future.
