  •  Well, I have been leery of them for years (5+ / 0-)

    As calendar editor at my former publication from 2003-2008, I was inundated with release from races/walks/runs/rides/ skates for every disease and charity under the sun. I generally featured only ones that had some interesting angle or had animals involved. But I almost automatically rejected Komen's for two reasons: I thought lesser known groups needed publicity more, and I was already uneasy about Nancy Brinker's relationship to George Bush, whom I was especially ticked off at back then.
