    I was disappointed to see the picture on p. 39 of the most recent Trek magazine extolling the anti-cancer group. While I support the concept of beating cancer and their efforts, I would hope that educated women could find some other word besides the all too ubiquitous but still disgusting F- word to support their cause. It was particularly jarring, as it appears just below the title “Class Acts” – hardly classy, if you ask me.
