This week’s New York Times Magazine cover story is an in-depth and pretty devastating critique of three decades of breast cancer awareness campaigns, especially focused on the Susan Komen foundation.

My day job is running computer systems that help keep electricity flowing. I like exploring the outdoors. I catch and throw flying discs for sport. I occasionally pretend to be a runner. Sometimes I take pictures. I'm trying to decipher DIY.
