PERRY’S CANCER INITIATIVE IMPETUS?

|

Bravo to Gov. Rick Perry for taking a reaction-provoking but life-preserving step to prevent at least one type of cancer, a disease that kills 35,000 Texans each year, according to the Associated Press. Politicians and ideologically driven special interest groups seem baffled by the governor’s executive order. First thing that came to my mind was his meeting with cancer survivor Lance Armstrong last month. Maybe there’s more, and maybe there’s Merck, but my feeling is that Perry at least in this area is doing what he thinks is right. Lord help me.
