Signs of the Times

A friend of mine was going in for her annual mammogram. She got an appointment really quickly and asked how this was possible.

The staff person said, "It's the economy. A lot of women have lost their health insurance and can't afford a mammogram."

My friend found this pretty disturbing.

Unemployment is 9.7% right now. That's one person in ten.
