Win a FREE Colonoscopy!

May 7, 2009

I drink too much, I swear too much, think too much and laugh too loud….hey, I blame it on the business.  But one thing I do is take control of my health.  So when CBS ran their smart, witty PSA about the Colonoscopy Sweepstakes,  I was impressed with the cynical, funny approach about the very thing NO ONE wants to talk about.    

I’ve interviewed several colon cancer survivors and they tell me how lucky they are to be alive…because they got screened. So I’ll let you know if I have colon cancer or not because tomorrow, the chick gets one. I better lose at least 5 pounds!

And while we’re on the subject of using your power for good, not evil, please take a look at this Public Service Announcement produced for a local children’s advocacy group.  The artwork was done by a fine local designer,  I wrote the copy and my video guy took photos (most are his own kids who are NOT neglected, by the way) then produced a lovely 30 seconds worth.  All at no charge. Because we have the power to do a good thing…and we all should.
