How do you criticize this?
From an e-mail:
My name is Gina Elise and I am a 24-year old UCLA grad–spent my first two years at UCSD. I have just completed producing the 2007 “Pin-Ups For Vets” calendar fundraiser which brings in funds for hospitalized Veterans’ programs and also provides a fun pin-up calendar to hosptialized Veterans. I am hand-delivering calendars from donors to the Veterans in the hospital—and I also am sending calendars ordered for deployed military in care packages to Iraq and Afghanistan. Each donor who purchases a calendar receives an acknowledgement from a VA Hospital staff member.
I guess I'm capitalizing on the prurient nature of an attractive young lady in undergarments but her cause is just and I like the 1940's style pinup gals. If your wife forbids you from hanging this in your workshop, you can do your thing for the brave men overseas and buy a calendar for one of them.
Now I'm an equal opportunity kind of guy. If I find one that would inspire the brave women serving overseas, I'll post it. I'd consider the cause myself but the results of that annual New Year's resolution haven't come to fruition, yet. Come to think of it, neither has the execution of said resolution.
You are a great American, doll ! (it's a 40's term, PC cops)
