Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Before the (typically sensationalist, completely missing the point) recent expose on Cervical Cancer that was PrimeTime's report, I posted an invite for people to sign up to the Irish Cancer Society's online petition for a national screening service.

It would seem that Mary Harney is well disposed to the concept. However, I've no doubt there will be a million and one task forces, expert reports, working groups and pilot programmes before this becomes a national reality. In the meantime, might I direct you to two excellent posts on the subject from different perspectives. Trixibelle and Omani.

For men who might find this subject makes them squeemish, different but equally thought provoking item has been posted by Rinceor.

Congratulations to U2 on their 5 grammys (grammies?)

I do like Omani's posting on the whole subject, apart from anything else its refreshing to hear a man being so passionate about the lives of his loved ones!

Mind you I was a bit squeamish about the subject myself this morning. Had a health screening, in which a smear test is included but after all my preparation (had the annual shower!!) they do the smears on another day so will have to have break the annual record for showers!!
