Update on "The Cure"

Mitchell here, again.

Last week I posted on the association between the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and Planned Parenthood.

I've gotten several comments, both here and at the Our Word site in support of exposing this relationship. In particular, one commentor at Our Word mentions a couple of local Minneapolis companies involved in support of Komen, including the local NBC affiliate, Channel 11. I've also gotten an email from someone noting that the Minneapolis Star-Tribune had an ad supporting Komen. My impression was that the ad was expressing some type of Strib involvement with the Race for the Cure, rather than simply running an ad paid for by Komen.

Does anyone else have any stories about retailers who've fallen victim to this scam? Anybody out there feel like standing up to the Komen juggernaut?
