Out of the Closet

Fiorella's been hearing a lot about breast cancer lately, which is amazing. Amazing not in the fact that she's seeing more pink than she ever knew existed, but that she's hearing people actually use the word "breast."

During Fio's formative years, nice people said "bosom" if they said anything at all. We can thank Betty Ford for getting us over that nonsense. She not only talked about her own breast cancer, but made it respectable. I'm not sure what Gerald Ford did during his presidency, but his wife certainly was a winner.

President Ford tripped a lot (not the drug kind, the feet kind) and hit people with golf balls. At least he didn’t screw up the economy!
