Today’s “Day by Day” Cartoon by Chris Muir is not just an election day political jibe at Nancy Pelosi. It’s a commentary on modern attitudes toward plastic surgery and nerve injections in the attempt to enhance one’s appearance. See? Just about all the big news stories relate to bioethics.
Seriously, the 70 plus year old Representative, like so many other women in Washington, Hollywood, and a city near you, does not look nearly her age.
However, the enhancement comes at a price. The masked facial expressions must be a problem for people who have to live with these women.
For some reason, I can’t help but think of the burqha.
Oh, well, it’s a self-imposed burqha, freely chosen with full informed consent and no one died, right?
