A friend of ours - also a friend of Progressive Bloggers - was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. We take exception to your statement, Ms. Raitt, that the isotope issue is "sexy" due to its propensity to conjure up (legitimate) fears of "radioactive leaks, cancer." I doubt our friend would agree, and I cannot imagine her anger and shock when she learns of your remarks.
Fortunately for our friend, who had to ask her surgeon about this today, she will not be affected by the isotope shortage. Other cancer patients will not be so lucky.
