I noticed in the news that a number of presidential candidates have dropped out of the race, and am relieved that our own candidate, Biker Jim, has not. 
 
If you consider that prostate cancer strikes 1 in 6 men, that's 17% of the population that will doubtless vote for Jim.  Most of their significant others (spouses, partners, etc.) will, too.  That's 34% already and a good start on the road to become president.
 
I'd like to suggest a few things to for Jim's platform, if I may:
(1)  More funds for research into prostate cancer and the development of a vaccine.
(2)  More funding for research into prostate cancer treatment and cure (see Tony's post)
(3)  More support for Vietnam veterans who are diagnosed with prostate cancer as a result of Agent Orange exposure.
 
If you have other suggestions for the prostate cancer platform, please add them to these.

Keep some of the light-hearted humor coming! There are too many heart breaking postings lately. I hope whatever fate becomes me in life, that my life-long lust for humor and laughter will never cease until my last breath. Peace!

Pssst....Inside sources have it that Jimmy Hoffa is buried in Detroit, near the location of the old Vernor's Ginger Ale plant on Woodward Avenue. Now if we can only locate D B Cooper, we can all sleep easier.
