Three exclamation points means you REALLY CARE!!!

Worst of all, though, was the funeral home I passed (alas, without my phone) with, yep, a breast-cancer awareness banner draped across the front.

If someone is cured, they are on the side of humanitarianism and compassion; if not, business just gets better. It’s a win-win!
