Someone really stepped in it with this one. SELF magazine asked runner Monika Allen for permission to run a photo of her wearing a tutu in the LA marathon. She said yes, thinking it would be cool... but SELF used the photo to make fun of women who dress up in tutus for runs.
Which is already a stupid and mean thing to do, but it's even worse because a) Monika's company makes and sells the tutus and donates the money to charity and b) she was wearing the Wonder Woman shirt and matching tutu because SHE HAS CANCER. She has brain cancer and was undergoing chemo.
Like I said... someone really stepped in it with this one.

What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
