I guess I missed the scientific double blind studies connecting sugar with cancer.
Of course, I thought this post was about a famous AM radio station in Des Moines.
If I was in charge of the FCC, I would allow stations that have been licensed for 50 years to apply for a 3 letter call sign.
Which reminds me of a post I need to write…
WOL …. I mean LOL
Shirley you can’t be serious. What a joke of a radio station.
The biggest irony to me about Radio One is that if you compare old pictures of founder Cathy Hughes to current ones, she is pretty clearly using products to try to make her look less black
Her story is actually pretty inspirational. CBS sold off WOL-AM as the completely unviable radio station it is. The only redeeming value of the license is it can be heard at the Whute House and Capital Hill, but not much beyond. She lived in the radio station , did the morning show herself and was going nowhere. Things turned around when her son got out of college and took over the sales function and money started to come in.
The UN is coming after the Catholic church now
I guess they finished with Sudan and need new reasons for more funding
Coca Cola’s other ad
It appears Pepsi doesn’t distribute Pepsi Throwback in North Carolina. Is it illegal to smuggle sugary soda across state lines yet?
I wonder how many people have never understood the gay symbolism of the butterfly in Coca Cola’s ads…
“I would like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony…”
This is nothing new. Coca Cola is a Gobal brand. “it’s a small world after all, it’s a small small world”…
Pepsi (and Mountain Dew) Throwback were available in at least parts of NC at one time. But I think they were “limited supplies only”. Mountain areas of NC have real sugar sodas — RC, Dr Pepper, Pepsi, etc. I’m surprised the nanny state hasn’t put a stop to that.
I prefer to drink water or beer to any soda. I guess the WHO wants to take away my beer, can I at least have water?
Well, let’s see. You already can’t smoke, so that means that we need the government to:
1) Place us all in clean rooms so we can’t get infections
2) Ban alcohol (didn’t we do that once?)
3) Outlaw being fat and legislate exercise
4) Pass a law that everything we wear must have an SPF. Also ban all X-Rays
5) Destroy the auto and truck industries to ease pollution. Also, no lawn mowers
6) Ensure women have children before age 20 and always breastfeed.
I think an alternate would be to shut down all power plants so there is no electricity and we will all freeze or roast to death. No need for controls when there is no population.
WHO – World Hypocrite Organization
“WHO – World Hypocrite Organization” . Not hypocrites so much as trying to get a paycheck on your back… and get paychecks for their friends the same way.
Just wait until they tackle prostate cancer.
That’s like “Just wait until the 2nd coming”.
Re: #4 i.e. “Radiation, both from the sun and medical scans”
And yet, no mention of RF, microwave, mm wave (TSA backscatter), or EMF radiation. Most 1st world urban areas are awash in electromagnetic pollution.
One of the things that still hasn’t sunk in is that mammograms cause cancer. There are reasons beyond financial to use them a lot less.
Yep, the imagery selected for that article were truly ironic.
CVS announced today it will stop selling tobacco products.
I’ve always had an issue with health providers handing out drugs to heal you, then having a store full of candy, cigarettes, booze, potato chips and lottery tickets. I’m not suggesting any of that be banned – more like that the same people are selling the disease and selling the cure.
“…the same people are selling the disease and selling the cure.”
Well, that is the quintessential American-style racket. 🙂
The follow-up question is, will CVS also stop selling Nicorette?
All our times have come
Here but now they’re gone
C.V.S., don’t fear the reefer
